Therapeutic alliance group 21 - what’s ‘being systemic’ in therapeutic practice?
Thursday 23rd January 2020. Guest speaker - Gail Eglin.
This workshop explores how thinking about relationships, both in and out of the therapy room, can open up new possibilities for action, when working with individuals, couples, and groups of all ages.
Gail is a qualified (MSC) and accredited couple, family, and systemic psychotherapist (UKCP and AFT Accred). She also offers supervision and consultation to teams within the NHS (specialist eating disorders tier four CAMHS service). Gail began her 'relational' therapeutic training in 2003 when she trained with Relate - working with couples and families.
Since 2010, she has worked in generic and specialist CAMHS, paediatric palliative care, and CYP inpatient services. An important part of her NHS work has involved developing a family clinic, systemic supervision and multi-family groups - all-encompassing relationships with staff, clients, and the wider system! Since November 2017, Gail has also been in private practice (www.wedocounselling.co.uk) and loves the diversity (of clients, client groupings, and issues) that this work brings.
Her aims and hopes are that you leave this workshop excited about opportunities for relational working in your practice; whatever your modality and existing knowledge base!
Gail will be covering;
- What’s in the systemic nutshell? A brief history and overview of family therapy training and accreditation, and how this way of working can facilitate change.
- Relational reflexivity and co-construction; tools for collaborating with clients for better outcomes.
- In or out of our seats? An introduction to some systemic action techniques; including 'standing scaling', 'externalisation', 'genograms/eco-maps' and 'outsider witnessing' that might generate new possibilities for thought and action.
- 'Magic Love Links' - an example of creative practice that can be used with children, young people, individuals, couples, and families.
You don’t need to bring anything except your curiosity! Gail will look forward to meeting you and us learning together.
