Reflective Practice Group for Senior Psychologists and Psychotherapists . Group meeting x10, weekly sessions.

About this event

A reflective space for senior psychologists and psychotherapists to think about ourselves and our work environments.

For the purpose of this space a senior psychologist or psychotherapist is considered to be someone qualified for at least 5 years and/or those dealing with more systemic roles such as service development, supervising qualified therapists and managing teams alongside therapeutic or research roles.

The group is a space to explore systemic and structural work dynamics as well as process personal and professional conflicts; to reflect on issues of leadership, power, position and privilege; along with sharing academic understandings, and importantly to receive emotional support when navigating the complexities of being a senior psychologist or psychotherapist.

Each session lasts for ninety minutes. Within the session the group members will be invited to volunteer to briefly share a professional situation for the group to discuss. With a maximum of two situations per session. Who shares is decided at the beginning of each session determined by whoever would like to or, if more than one or two volunteers, who is most urgent.

This group was set up with the hope to begin to address the need for spaces where senior psychologists and psychotherapists are able to speak openly, explore ideas and think together about some of the complexities of senior roles; and where local service politics and professional politics can also be contained sufficiently to allow them to be observable and reflected on.

Each season a block of sessions is offered as a closed group experience running for 10 consecutive weeks. There are three blocks a year. The fee is £215 per block (£21.50 per session). Group members are asked to commit to attending one block of sessions to encourage a safe space and continuity in group dynamics as such there are no refunds on missed sessions.

Dates are: 12/09; 19/09; 26/09; 03/10; 10/10; 31/10; 7/11; 14/11; 21/11; 28/11.

Time: 10 am - 11:30 am Monday Mornings

Where: Zoom Meeting Room

All are welcome to the group however there is an explicit invitation to people who have experiences of being in marginalized groups. For example: people from BAME communities, disabled people, people that identify as LGBTQ, people who have a religious faith, people who identify as working class, people with lived experience of mental health problems.

Group participants are asked to treat the group and all material that arises from within the space with clinical confidentiality. The ticket sales will close a few days prior to the group commencing to give us time to navigate any potential conflict of roles.

This is an established reflective practice group. Should a space be available, it opens for new members to join/ old members to return at the end of each block. If you are considering joining the group, please do contact me to discuss about spaces.
