Quarterly Meeting for Members and Colleagues for professional contact, dialogue and development (QMMAC)
Friday 22nd February 2019, 9.30 am – 4.00 pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House, central Edinburgh
Fee: £30 (£15 for IGA Students)
At this QMMAC we welcome Frances Griffiths who will provide a short introduction on the topic Ethical Dilemmas in our professional practice. She will consider the responsibility we each have to be aware of the ethics and codes of ethical practice and how we interpret these. We will think about the importance of ethical practice and the dilemmas of being a practitioner if, and perhaps when, we are challenged by organisational culture.
We will address the issue of how we manage and deal with difficult issues in our professional work and attendees are invited to bring examples from their practice for discussion.
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.
