Group Facilitation skills training for qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists

About this Event

Every group has a distinct character and power and is always more than the sum of its individual parts. Facilitating groups can be like journeying without a map – often difficult, intense, challenging and stimulating.

Group facilitators can become the receptacle for the group’s negativity and projections.

The course aims to elicit each member’s unique ability, and develop their confidence in facilitating therapeutic groups – by exploring with them their ability to use themselves to harness the strength of the group to empower individual members.

It is open to qualified Counsellors and Psychotherapists trained in any modality.

This course is Certified by the CPD Certification Service

This 10-day (one weekend per month) training will cover the characteristics of group work: tasks, facilitator styles, models, interventions, dynamics and processes, boundaries and inherent difficulties.

By the end of the course members should have developed:

  • Theory and practice of group facilitation
  • Group facilitation skills
  • Facilitating skills for online groups
  • Group processes and stages of group development
  • Roles and dynamics within groups
  • Styles, role and tasks of the group facilitator
  • Use of self (personal attributes and contributions you bring to groups and group facilitation)
  • Assessment for groups
  • Boundaries
  • Conflict resolution
  • Differences and diversity and group facilitation
  • Co-facilitation skills
  • Setting up groups
  • Skills and practice

Entry requirements:

  • Participants will need to have a minimum of a two years post-qualification experience and be currently working as a counsellor or psychotherapist.
  • Hold a minimum of a Diploma level in counselling or psychotherapy qualification, or equivalent.
  • Because of the experiential nature of this training, the course requires you to be willing to take part in skills practice – either as a facilitator or as a group member – discussions and to use your own experience as material to learn from. Self-reflective skills will be needed in order to look at the self in relation to groups. This includes the requirement to express yourself clearly, fluently and accurately.

To receive the certificate you will need to

  • Complete a minimum of 10 logged hours of group facilitation during or outside the class with peers or within 6 months post teaching module
  • A minimum of 80% course attendance
  • Maintain a reflective journal throughout the course
