Seminar leader on Qualifying Course in London - On becoming a Group Analyst


We are seeking to appoint a seminar leader to convene a series of 8 Qualifying Course (QC) seminars entitled, “On becoming a Group Analyst” in the autumn term of 2019, to the third-year students.  This is the last teaching module of the QC, consisting of 8 seminars and it is designed to aid the transition from student to practitioner, including support in thinking about and writing the Qualifying paper.

The seminars will provide a forum in which students can address some of the immediate practice dilemmas likely to face them in their work as psychotherapists - ethical and practical considerations; confidentiality and record-keeping; relationships with referrers; professional membership; fees; codes of practice, etc. They will also examine the working identity of a group analyst who can articulate what a Group Analyst is and start to think about the rite of passage from student to practitioner. 

The 8 seminars take place on Thursday afternoons from 2:15pm – 3:30pm at the IGA, 1 Daleham Gardens.  There will be opportunities to invite other experienced group analysts to contribute the delivery of the module, although the seminar leader post is to coordinate the input from others to ensure the delivery of a cohesive programme. 

For an informal discussion on how to develop the module and reading list please contact the London Courses Director, Monica Doran, Londoncoursesdirector@groupanalysis-uk.co.uk

Job description


Seminar leader on Qualifying Course in London - Mind, Self and Society


We are seeking to appoint a seminar leader to convene a series of 9 Qualifying Course seminars entitled
Mind, Self and Society in the autumn term of 2019, to the first year students commencing in October and concluding in December.

This module is delivered to the 1st year students when they begin the qualifying course (QC) and as such it is their first experience of the QC theoretical seminars.  It is challenging series of seminars for many students because it focuses on the core assumption that the individual is not only inseparable from the social environment, but the mind and the self are essentially social.  The module aims to locate group analytic theory in the context of related theories and to provide an understanding of the roots of group analysis; to give a taste of current thinking and debates regarding the relationship between psyche/mind and society; to begin to think about the implications for clinical work. This seminars looks at some of the thinking from which Foulkes' ideas emerged, as well as the ways in which later group analysts have developed them.

 

The seminars take place at the IGA, 1 Daleham Gardens on Thursday afternoons, with the first seven held at 2:15pm–3:30pm and the last two at 3:45pm– 5:00pm.  They will be delivered to the 1st year trainees.

For an informal discussion on how to develop the series and reading list please contact the London Courses Director, Monica Doran, Londoncoursesdirector@groupanalysis-uk.co.uk
