Education in Guidance Groups

Home / Education in Guidance Groups

There are various purposes for guidance within operations. The purpose can be to improve the treatments designed in the workplace by receiving help to illuminate and deepen different aspects of treatment work. Guidance can also be designed with the goal of developing the practitioner’s competence and ability to work generally with treatments and specifically in the current treatment.

I offer a guidance component of 5-10 sessions that focuses on training and developing professionals in guidance groups. The training/development has different focuses.

1. Shape your professional platform

Based on my book “Shape your professional personality,” professionals in the guidance group are offered the opportunity to reflect on their own professional design based on the different parts of the book and to reflect on the values and norms found in the workplace.

From the content of the training:

  • How do you experience the fact of having power in relation to those you meet in your profession? How does your experience affect the design of your professional platform?
  • What boundary do you have between the private and professional platforms?
  • How do you communicate with your verbal and non-verbal communication?
  • What do you do regarding physical touch?
  • What is professional empathy and what does it mean to “lend” your emotions in the profession?
  • How does using your emotions in your profession affect your private platform?
  • How do you maintain your professional platform to make it sustainable over time?

2. Systems theory in treatment

The purpose of the education in the guidance group is to gain more knowledge about the different axioms within systems theory and, based on the theory, link family systems with theory in a systems-theoretical analysis to create a hypothesis for treatment.

From the content:

  • Systems theory and Cybernetics: how do they become comprehensible in family psychotherapeutic treatment? What is the basis for systemic family psychotherapy?
  • Communication theory: which concepts are important to analyze in order to understand the interaction in a family?
  • Subsystems in a family: couple, parent, and sibling systems; what functions do they have in the family system?
  • The therapist in System theory in family psychotherapy: what is required?

3. Family psychotherapy / couples psychotherapy

The purpose of the training is to increase knowledge about how to work structurally with family therapy and couples psychotherapy. Based on cases, the application of systems theory and structural theory aims to increase understanding of how treatments that are based on structural theory in both families and couples develop.
