Quarterly Meeting for Members and Colleagues for professional contact, dialogue and development (QMMAC)
Friday 19th June 2020, 9.30 am – 4.00 pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria Terrace, Edinburgh EH1 2JL
Fee: £40 (£20 for IGA Students)
At this meeting of QMMAC we welcome Ewa Wojciechowska, a former staff member on the Glasgow IGA training courses finishing in 2014. Ewa is a group analyst in private practice based in Yorkshire. She is a member of the Institute of Group Analysis and the Group Analytic Society International.
She has written about the importance and management of boundaries in two books: Staff Support Groups in the Helping Professions: Principles, Practice and Pitfalls. Hove. Routledge. Eds: Hartley P and Kennard D (2009) and more recently in the Art and Science of Working Together: Practising group analysis in teams and organisations Ed: Christine Thornton Routledge (2019)
Ewa will be presenting some ideas and clinical vignettes about how boundaries are crossed with reference to power dynamics and the "turning of the blind eye".
QMMAC offers the exciting opportunity to meet colleagues and students from group analysis, psychoanalysis and related professional fields for a shared experience of large group work and presentations relevant to working in psychotherapy.
This quarterly meeting provides an enjoyable and supportive space for thinking, dialogue and learning. The regular meetings aim to reduce feelings of professional isolation, stimulate creative discussion and develop a sense of community among those involved in psychodynamic work.
Through shared learning and dialogue, we grow stronger and more confident about our work and its place in the psychotherapeutic milieu.
Suitable for past and present trainees in group analysis (at any level), group analysts, individual analysts and colleagues in other fields with an interest in groups.
