If you are keen to experience and reflect on the processes that are present in any group you care to mention, this course is for you. Informed by the work of Irvin Yalom, Lesley and Kevin will take you through a mix of teaching, experience and reflection designed to build your awareness and confidence in understanding and using process. The course is above all experiential and we believe it will be useful for all group facilitators.
