Reflective Practice Group

The reflective practice group is aimed at experienced practitioners working within complex organisational contexts as well as senior therapists working in private practice. The group aims to provide a safe space for in depth reflection on clinical and professional practice:- a space in which to step back and reflect on complex professional and therapeutic relationships and to discuss any aspect of your work and role including individual cases, approaches to therapeutic formulation and intervention and clinical and organisational dilemmas. The group offers the opportunity to share issues and dilemmas and to receive feedback to enable you to identify and understand any recurring themes and manage areas in your work where you feel blocked or frustrated. The group also provides a forum in which to share ideas and to hear from practitioners from different professional and therapeutic backgrounds as to how they manage similar tensions in their roles and practice. It is anticipated that that group members will bring experience of a range of therapeutic approaches including psychodynamic, systemic, cognitive and humanistic.
