Processing Practice

Professionals who interact with individuals, groups or communities in addressing health and/or social concerns will find this group useful. Contemporary health and social services in South Africa are characterized by high workloads and frequent structural changes driven by resource constraints. Navigating multiple demands and layers of stress on a daily basis, service providers have little time for thinking dynamically about their work.

These groups comprise eight-ten persons and are offered as required to individuals from different organizations or settings or groups from the same organization.

The group offers a reflective, thoughtful space for practitioners to process practice issues that affect their personal/professional lives. A dynamic understanding of work experiences in the South African service context, based on a shared exploration of personal/structural processes, will unfold in a confidential and supportive group environment.
