Difference and Discomfort: here and now with Suzanne Worrica - Online Workshop

Course description

This workshop will be delivered via Zoom.

Identity and difference between client and practitioner in the therapy room are sometimes partially worked with or left in the background. The ongoing dis-ease in the social and political field outside the therapy room that our clients bring into the therapy room calls for practitioners to attend to their own thoughts, feelings and the background they bring into the space between client and practitioner. Gestalt therapy theory, with its focus on present awareness, will give participants the opportunity to explore intersections of identities, differences and discomforts in relation to each other.

After recent social movements all of us are being asked to consider our own social location, the socio-political fields and systems we inhabit. This also includes the microcosm of the therapy room. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to explore where they stand and will support exploration with clients.

This workshop aims to facilitate discussion and embodied dialogue between participants, leading to greater awareness of their own identities in relation to others and the wider social and political field. Among the main points that will be introduced are intersecting identities and unconscious bias.
