6 Fortnightly Online (Zoom) Sessions . Tuesday evenings 7pm to 9pm (Syndey Time, UTC+11).
22nd September 2020: Forming the Group-The First Session. Planning the group- the warm-up. Self presentation. Purpose (individual and group). We will explore the forming of the group by creating our own group. Participants will present themselves, we may create vignettes and explore some of the ideas around forming a group as we do so ourselves.
6th October 2020: Group Leadership-Guardians of Purpose. The roles and responsibilities of a group leader. Exploring the roles of leader, we will discuss these roles in the context of leading a group and also bring forward psychodramatically what skills and attributes may need developing and how this is alive as participants go about their daily lives.
20th October 2020: Spontaneity and Creativity. Keeping the work going. The cornerstones of the work. Spontaneity and Creativity (with warm-up) are the alchemists of life! We will explore how these concepts and living alchemy is relevant to group experience and leadership as well as to living of our lives from day to day.
3rd November 2020: Systems Theory. Investigating all the elements in a group and social system. We will actively explore group participants’ Social and Cultural Atoms- a snapshot of their relationships in early life (identity forming!) and of their current relationships in the group and in their lives.
17th November 2020: Groupwork Theory. Forming, Norming, Storming, Performing (and other ideas). We will explore some models of groupwork and share about our experiences in this and other groups we have been a part of.
1st December 2020: Conclusion and review. The importance of closing/ending a group: Reflections on learning over the 6 sessions of this group and how it may apply to the life and work of participants. Perhaps also what they may be creating or dreaming into for the future
