with Adrienne Lee TSTA(P)
The experience of group psychotherapy is profound and intensely moving, often creating a space for significant growth and change. This therapy group will be experiential and also a training experience. We will experience, demonstrate and analyse the different styles and processes of leadership and work that can be done in a group setting according to the theory and practice of Transactional Analysis and Process Group Therapy.
Group members will have the opportunity to learn experientially how to create and maintain a safe group setting and boundary; how to use therapeutic language, metaphor and imagery in groups; how to use process contracting; how to do impasse resolution and redecision work in a process group; how to use the whole group to facilitate individual change; how to use the individual to facilitate group change; how to do deconfusion work in a group setting; how to work with the transference and countertransference and how to offer containment and closure in a group process.
The Process Group Therapy Training is especially recommended for counsellors and therapists in TA training. It is an opportunity for anyone who is not in training at The Berne Institute to gain group therapy or accredited advanced TA training hours, and for Berne Institute trainees to gain MSc credits for Theme 4.
Timings: first day 9.30 am – 7 pm, second day 9 am – 4.30 pm.
