Gill Emslie & Andy Smith
A Three Day Training Seminar
19 – 21 FEB 2021 |
INNOVATIVE ONLINE FORMAT
TRAINING DAYS FOR IAPOP STUDENTS ONLY: 22-23-24 FEB
Unconscious ideas of how the world works, collective traumas and social constructions have a massive effect on the way we see the world, and how we try and solve problems. They even dictate how we engage with what might be good for us and the planet.
The most important issues we have ever faced are part of the present time. Environmental degradation, the myth of economic growth, of which the pandemic is part, the history of racism and its link to class and injustice are core to this seminar.
How can your facilitation skills, methods and interventions take account of these, how can we prepare as facilitators for what is to come?
Watch this video with Andy Smith around a theory of Timothy Morton:
“Working on race, mysogyny, class, trasnphobia, ablesim is in a way like talking avout cliamte change…”
“These are complex and intricate topics and affect us all, here is one way to see how they interlink especially around how we transform guilt into active responsibility. It’s not everything, it might not even accurately explain this idea well but for facilitators and us all it’s a question we need to explore.. and we will in the seminar soon.”
In this training:
- How the dynamics of the process appear within us and in our teams
- Group facilitation – interventions facilitators can make especially when there are intersections of privilege and power
- Roles analysis & sensing the field/atmosphere in the background – time spirits, ghost roles*
- Deep Democracy so that we can help processes that are stuck to biome more fluid again and not continue to cycle..
- Developing awareness of the different levels that appear in group interactions
- Researching our own edges and reactions as facilitators.
Processwork makes a vital contribution to awareness or ‘mindfulness’ practice and links inner work and social action. Its methods are used in theatre, music and the arts and in conflict resolution and post-conflict community recovery, diversity awareness, organisational and social movements as well as in psychotherapy!
