Have you ever sat in a group and wondered what is going on?
Weekend Training Programme
We all live and work in groups – in our relationships with family and friends and
professionally in our relationships at the workplace, yet we are often at a loss as to what
might be going on in the dynamics of those groups, especially when difficulties arise as they
always do!
This one-year course is open to people who are interested in deepening their understanding
of group dynamics in both personal and professional settings and in learning about the
potential applications of group analysis in clinical and/or organisational contexts.
Drawing on theories of founding pioneer in Group Analysis, S.H. Foulkes, who was always of
the view that individuals can only be understood in the context of their groups, this
experiential foundation training develops an in-depth understanding of how group dynamics
influence the individual and how the individual’s dynamics influence the group. The training
also explores the ‘unconscious’ dynamics in groups.
This well regarded and long running training programme is offered in block format over nine
weekends from September 2019 – June 2020.
The main elements of the programme are experiential, both in small and large groups and
also through theory, work discussion and case study groups.
