Event description

Description

The Flourishing Lives Reflective Practice Groups are aimed at arts, health and wellbeing professionals working within community contexts.

Whether you work in a day centre, arts organisation, clinical setting, outreach initiative or in freelance community arts, you are very welcome to join us.

We are delighted to be working alongside our partners at Open Age and Octavia Support who will be the regular hosts of our North West London Group.

This will be a closed group of up to 8 practitioners and will provide a rich and deep reflective space for your practice.


Reflective Practice

The group aims to provide a safe space for in-depth reflection on working practice: a space in which to step back and reflect on complex professional and supportive relationships and to discuss any aspect of your work and role including individual cases, approaches to engagement, and clinical and organisational dilemmas.

The group provides a forum in which to share ideas and to hear from practitioners from different professional backgrounds as to how they manage similar tensions in their roles and practice. It offers a structure of support where the experience of all members of the group is the conduit and catalyst for learning and exploration.


Group Facilitator: Cressida Brotherstone

Cressida is a qualified art psychotherapist registered to HCPC and BAAT. She has a wide range of experience in working in all sections of the community, expressing a range of issues affecting health and well-being. Through maintaining therapeutic boundaries, as well as adopting a non-interventionist, person-centered approach, she hopes to offer a safe and reflective space for creative healing.


Open Age & Octavia Support

Open Age provide a wide range of physical, creative and mentally stimulating activities to enable older people to develop new skills, fulfill their potential and make new friends. Octavia Support provide a range of housing, care and support services for older and vulnerable adults living in west and central London. We are extremely grateful for both Open Age and Octavia Support's invaluable support in hosting our North West London Group.
