Aims of the Certificate Course
This course is intended for qualified practitioners Counsellors/Psychotherapists who are interested in broadening their knowledge of group dynamics. Whether in the mental health field, social services, education, the voluntary sector or business, and whether the groups people work with are therapy groups, support groups, educational groups or staff groups.
The course will also be of value to those intending to set up a group, those already working with groups, and to those wanting to better understand their functioning in groups to which they already belong.
The course structure includes theoretical seminars, experiential groups and work discussion groups. Participants will be introduced to key group-analytic theory, concepts and their application in clinical and non-clinical settings.
Issues of diversity and difference will be integral to course content. Participants will be encouraged to contribute their experiences of groups from the many social and professional contexts in which groups operate.
Each weekly session is divided into two parts:
• A Theoretical Seminar or Work Discussion Group lasting for 1 ½ hours. The discussion will draw on the participants’ relevant experience in the work place and other group settings.
• An Experiential Group lasting also for 1 ½ hours
