WORKING IN THE WEB
An online course on ecosystemic psychotherapy
Nick Totton & Allison Priestman
Starting Sept. 23, 2022
12 fortnightly Friday mornings
Cost: £700 (maximum concession £450)
An ecosystem is a spontaneously self-regulating network of interdependent beings, all of which form the environment for each member of the network. When we meet as therapist and client, each of us comes as part of many literal and metaphorical ecosystems; we can see the situation as a disturbance somewhere in the client’s networks which leads them to seek interaction with the therapist’s networks, including but not only their professional ones. Many different beings are effectively present at the meeting – human and other-than-human, alive and dead, physical and non-physical; all potentially have a role to play.
Experiencing therapy from this larger perspective is enriching, but it’s not immediately clear how to translate this vision into a new form of practice. We will be exploring some possible ways of working ecosystemically, through presentations, discussion, group processing and exercises in pairs and small groups. To an even greater extent than usual, who the participants are and what they bring will shape the course.
