Psychological work in the time of COVID
About this event
This event is about psychological work in the time of COVID.
Are you concerned about the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown on your work? You may be planning on returning from online to face-to-face work and have anxieties about the transition for your clients. You may be struggling with your own personal issues alongside.
We are offering a ten-session group-analytic online work reflection group. This group will run once weekly via the Zoom video conferencing platform. As a professional in private practice and/or working within an organisation, there will be choices that need to be made. Personal and social pressures can make these choices hard to think about.
Group members can explore unconscious dynamics that influence issues such as: managing work relationships; facing financial hardship; change of work routines; caring for your families; coping with personal stress and anxiety whilst working with others who are also coping with stress and anxiety.
The group will have a maximum of ten members and will run for ten weeks on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:30pm. Start date to be confirmed.
The fee for the group is £250 payable in advance or in two equal instalments of £125.
To join the group you will need access to the Zoom video conferencing platform and a quiet confidential space from which to participate for the duration of the group. We expect participants to attend every session. CPD certificates will be available on completion of the group.
To express an interest in joining this group please email us.
What happens after we receive your interest about the group?
We’ll arrange a time to talk via Zoom, to answer questions you may have and to think whether this group is right for you. If you are going to join the group we will email confirmation with a registration form that needs to be completed and returned before the start of the group.
