Group Facilitation CPD Weekend

A weekend workshop on Zoom for therapists and counsellors to learn the skills needed to run safe and therapeutically effective groups. Therapy groups can be a nerve-wracking experience for both the facilitator and the participants, but also have the capacity to expedite personal transformation. Groups are able to create experiences that are difficult to replicate in a 1-2-1 setting.

The next course date is 16th/17th October 2021. To reduce Zoom fatigue the day will be split with a four hour break in the afternoon to get away from your screens and move about. Each day will comprise two sessions 9am-12noon and 4pm-7pm. The course will be capped at 15 participants to maintain an interactive feel. This is not a webinar event.
