Event Details

This professional training module offers participants a chance to explore and develop their group facilitation skills and power of presence, deepen their understanding of what the gestalt approach to group work offers and learn ways to structure content using the ‘safe emergency’ framework. This content will be delivered through experiential learning of being in a group and utilising collective group wisdom.

Spaces in this training are limited, and participants are required to possess undergraduate qualifications in counselling or equivalent. 

Participants will learn;

  • Gestalt group therapy theory
  • System informed group theory
  • Group work within teams, organisational groups, training and teachings
  • How, we as professional, can create a space within a group setting that is most effective for the flow of healing.

The workshop will cover topics such as contracting, group rules, planning group sessions, the use of ‘self’ as a tool to sense of others, relational dynamics including power and shame, ethics, managing rupture and how to facilitate group endings.

This group would be particularly useful to those considering running a group and needing to workshop their idea. It is also would be particularly useful to people wishing to develop their presence for group facilitation through the gestalt lens of phenomenology, field theory and dialogue. The group itself will learn from its own process as a group in the here and now, making the learning dynamic, embodied and sustaining. It will offer and explore delivery both ONLINE and IN PERSON structured as two ONLINE 3 hour sessions and one two day weekend in person workshop.

Participants will have the opportunity to be part of a dynamic group whilst learning how to facilitate group within the training cohort

This training will take place over 1  face to face weekend and two evening online sessions via zoom. Weekend hours  will be 9.30am until 4.30pm.
