Event Details

Two 2-day experiential workshops:

Jan 22-23, 2019: Building a Systems-Centered Group
This workshop offers two levels of training: Foundation Level and Intermediate-Advanced Level. Both groups will work separately as well as have opportunities to observe each other.

Foundation Group
For members new to SCT and those wanting to develop their SCT skills in building a systems-centered group.
Members will learn:
• functional subgrouping as a method of conflict resolution
• how to modify the restraining forces that inhibit change
• the “fork-in-the-road” of choice between explaining conflicts and exploring them
• to manage and weaken the familiar “one-up, one-down” role relationships
• how to work in a systems-centered group on reactions to authority

Intermediate-Advanced Group
With endorsement from their training group leaders or system mentors, members will work in an SCT group to explore the dynamics in each of the phases of system development.
Members will learn:
• the conflicts in each of the phases of system development
• their own role responses in each phase
• the challenges of moving from person to member in each phase of system development

If you need assistance in determining whether the Intermediate-Advanced group is a good training context for your work, contact Sven-Erik Viskari by email or at +46 (0)70 575 12 54

Jan 24-25, 2019: Functional Role-Taking: Coping in Times of Uncertainty
Developing a systems-centered perspective enables a shift from taking one’s work or organizational roles “just personally” to taking one’s membership functionally in support of the goals of the context.
Members will learn:
• to discriminate between one’s work role in an organization and the ongoing suction to personal roles
• to apply systems-centered thinking to locate oneself in one’s role in relation to the goal and the context of the organization
• to weaken the blocks to role flexibility in times of uncertainty
