Course programme

Facilitating therapeutic and work-groups is an essential skill, whether you work with patients, service users or carers. This two-day workshop in Chelmsford is valuable training if you want to develop high-performing teams that effectively deliver therapeutic, clinical supervision and reflective practice groups.

In a well-facilitated group, participants feel supported and will learn from each other in a safe and cohesive environment. They experience a sense of empowerment from shared experience and knowledge, helping them to transform their personal life and/or their professional practice.

Our workshop will be tailored as much as possible to suit your requirements. Overt the course of two days you will:

  • develop a critical appreciation of the requirements of facilitating effective groups
  • engage in group work, both as a participant and facilitator, learning from your own and others experience
  • critically examine the role of facilitator.

We'll cover the following topics:

  • the rationale for group work
  • group work values, models and research evidence
  • developing anti-discriminatory and anti-oppressive group work
  • awareness of group facilitation styles
  • developing a strategy to promote positive group practice
  • the process of planning and facilitating a group, and evaluating it
  • developing strategies to deal with common problems in groups
  • experiencing group dynamics which foster genuine support and learning
