THE ESSENTIAL TOOLKIT FOR RUNNING GROUPS

Approved by the British Psychological Society for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

There is currently not a single service that is not under pressure to deliver more client contacts and more effective interventions. This is the case whatever field we work in; from mental health to changing health behaviours working with young people, from dietetics to psychotherapy. Unfortunately however, our primary training is often in one-to-one models of change. Equally, more specialist training in group work often requires commitment to expensive and time consuming long courses for which funding is often not available. This can be particularly pressing because dynamics within groups often mean that what works in one-to-one work does not always transfer to working with multiple clients and that problems in group work are often more common as a result. This one day course run by Consultant Clinical Psychologist Paul Grantham provides the necessary basic toolkit to address these issues successfully and prepare and refresh professionals in their group work. Whether you are new to running groups or are simply looking for a refresher to provide new ideas and strategies, this course is invaluable.
