About the Event

This workshop introduces ten key skills to help us talk and relate by mapping out the keywords and phrases of our discussions on paper.  This live, mutual and reflective process helps us see what we are saying, shape what we want to say and reflect on how the conversation is going.  It is proposed as a key and dynamic ingredient to building reflective capacity, relational thinking and therapeutic awareness. 

This half-day introductory workshop is for anyone whose work involves individual or group psychotherapy, counselling or reflective practice and would like to explore skills in mapping as we talk. The workshop is led by Steve Potter who is a Cognitive Analytic Psychotherapist, teacher and supervisor and had been teaching the process skills and ideas of 'talking with a map' to many teams and individuals in the UK and internationally for the past twenty years. A pilot measure for the routine monitoring of conversational and relational awareness session by session is included.  

The approach is an application of the concepts and tools of Cognitive Analytic Therapy.  It also draws on lessons from relational psychotherapies and creative writing.  A workbook of handouts and pre-reading is sent to participants a week prior to the workshop and the book Talking with a Map is available to purchase with a discount code after the workshop.  Follow up small group supervision is available in some cases.
