This course is for practitioners leading groups which process emotional and relational material.

You will need a level of awareness of your own emotional and relational processes, and a capacity to tolerate a wide range of group relational interactions.

The course will include:

  • Creating the conditions – setting the conditions for a successful group

Our other varied experiences as group participants and leaders, including:
