Are you interested in making teaching co-counselling part of your paid work? If so, this course may be the course for you! 

In this course you will learn and practice how to teach co-counselling to a group of people. Through a mix of group, solo and mentored study and practice you will deepen your understanding of co-counselling theory and practice, develop your own style and confidence as a teacher, and become part of a community of co-counselling teachers. 

The training is suitable for those who have done the 40 hour introduction to co-counselling training, and wish to get experience of teaching co-counselling to others. You don’t need any  teaching or counselling qualifications to do this course, although these may be helpful to you. What you most need is enthusiasm, commitment and some experience of doing co-counselling sessions.

A 2 day group training in London on 20-21 August 2019

Doing an apprenticeship with an experienced co-counselling teacher

Leading a short introductory workshop in co-counselling to a group

Having a co-counselling mentor to support you on your journey to teaching

Being part of a community of co-counselling teachers and apprentices

A combination of individual and collective learning 

A peer-peer graduation day in February 

 

Upon completing the training you will feel more confident and better equipped to lead/co-lead your own co-counselling courses.

A personal note from the Course facilitator:

'‘I have taught 85 people co-counselling over the past 2 years and have found this work some of the most rewarding  I've ever had the pleasure of doing. It feels meaningful, boundary pushing, deeply needed, and appreciated. I would really love to support others who are interested to take the plunge and learn to teach co-counselling in their own style, and in a way that is financially viable for them.  The world needs more co-counselling teachers. Would you like to be one of them?'' Kathleen Cassidy, 2019

Autumn CCI Teachers' Workshop

English

Type of Event: 

There will be an autumn workshop for active CCI teachers and helpers, and people considering teaching, helping or returning, at Unstone Grange, in the Peak District near Sheffield. Unstone is a beautiful place in peaceful countryside and has hosted co-counselling gatherings for many years. It has beds for 35 people, plus camping space.

This event follows on from the enjoyable and constructive Teachers' workshop at Newmarket in February. Hopefully it will help to strengthen an active network of coco teachers in the UK.

 What we'll be doing

 The weekend will be run along the usual coco lines, i.e. co-created by the people who attend. It will be able to draw on ideas that surfaced at the teacher weekend in February, as well as new ones. It should be a great opportunity to:

  • share and develop your coco teaching skills

  • share ideas on how coco can be promoted and offered to more people

  • explore what future(s) we see for coco and how we want to make them happen,

and of course

  • take your own confidence and personal development forward a step or two.

Some themes that arose at the recent Newmarket workshop were:

Increasing diversity in CCI

A vision of CCI in 2020

Using business approaches to grow CCI

Developing and supporting CCI teachers

Please feel free to make suggestions on the booking form for themes or strands you would like, and whether you might lead them.

Costs and how to book

Cost for the workshop is £40 if booked before 1 October, £45 afterwards,

plus food (probably about £40). The minimum deposit is £20.

The Science of Emotion & Co-counselling - a CCI Teachers Network Workshop

English

Type of Event: 

Workshop Focus: How can we use new scientific ideas about emotions and human nature to improve our co-counselling teaching, to address current concerns in CCI, and to evaluate the usefulness of new developments?

The facilitators for this workshop are Rose Evison and Richard Horobin. They learned co-counselling from John Heron in 1973, and started teaching it in 1975. Over the years, they have taught many Fundamentals to the public and to helping professionals; facilitated advanced skills workshops in different countries; run co-counselling teacher training; edited international newsletters and written many articles; also written chapters on co-counselling in books aimed at expert counsellors and helping professionals.
Richard has always worked in Universities as a bio-medical researcher, and is still working at the cutting edge of his subject. Rose has worked as a counselling psychologist and a business psychologist, and been involved in a variety of research projects with people along the way.

Rose and Richard say:

"Although we still teach the same core concepts and peer practice, our current ways of teaching co-counselling have benefitted from new theories of emotions and human nature developed from scientific research in many fields. We are interested in sharing our ways of teaching and, with the help of participants, drawing comparisons with others in CCI; in exploring how teaching is influenced by the metaphors and analogies we all bring from the wider culture; and in looking at how current topics of concern in CCI can usefully be addressed from the standpoint of the scientific models of emotions."

Workshop design and structure

The workshop design will emphasise participation and involvement. Participants will be encouraged to share their beliefs about co-counselling and emotions, the ways they teach the reciprocal-role peer relationship, and the core concepts of patterns, restimulation, balance of attention, discharge and re-evaluation – starting before the weekend.

Rose and Richard will facilitate co-counselling activities that enable participants to explore the impact of new scientific ideas about emotions on co-counselling teaching; provide short presentations linking theory and practice; do demonstrations when asked; provide opportunities for participants to think about, and share their own ideas and teaching experiences –  and discuss the consequence of any key points of difference that emerge. This will be set in the more general context of how a teacher's beliefs affect teaching models, strategies and tactics.
The workshop will start with mini-sessions which will illustrate some of R & R's current teaching methods, facilitate participants getting to know people they don't know, and set up a safe co-counselling working culture. Then Rose and Richard will facilitate exploration of the usefulness of the new scientific theory of emotions on co-counselling teaching of the core concepts, using the methods outlined above. 

On the second day there will be a mini-workshop exploring shame as the master emotion of everyday life, which elevates laughter to being the master discharge. We will explore the relationship between shame and interpersonal anger shown up by research, and how  laughter seems to be the most effective way to disrupt anger patterns. Suggestions for session briefs which will help participants work on shame and interpersonal anger will be provided.

The programme for the final segment of the weekend will be decided collaboratively, with all  participants deciding what they want to focus on.

During the weekend the following current topics of concern within CCI can be addressed as appropriate, and if wanted by participants, in the context that the new theories of emotions can illuminate them, and provide practical strategies for dealing with them:

  1. How can we evaluate the usefulness of ideas and activities from other growth/therapy methods?
  2. Can discharge be dangerous for some people or in some circumstances?
  3. Are feelings and emotions confused? Does focusing on feelings blind us to other patterns?
  4. Is discharge confused with distress, particularly when working to release interpersonal anger?
  5. How does co-counselling relate to the ideas about our shadow sides?

Venue

The venue is a self contained house – we will be the only people in occupation. The bedrooms are twin and some single with one large group room and two other working spaces. Max numbers 19.
Address: The Old Stable House Centre , 3 Sussex Lodge, Fordham Road, Newmarket, Suffolk CB8 7AF

Website: www.oldstablehouseretreats.org.uk

Cost: Self-catering or part-catered. Cost will be £22 per person per night, plus food.

Booking process

The venue requires a minimum of 440 per weekend (i.e. 10 people staying 2 nights each).

For the workshop to run we therefore need 10 people to book and pay a £30 non-returnable deposit by November 30th 2011 and we can then confirm the venue booking.
