Flourishing Lives Reflective Practice Groups

Launching our London-wide reflective practice groups for arts, health & wellbeing professionals.

We are delighted to announce that Flourishing Lives has launched our London-wide reflective practice groups for arts, health and wellbeing professionals working within community contexts.

The five different groups will meet every two months in five key areas across London - North, North West, East, South East and South West London - and will offer a vital framework of support for practitioners working in arts, health and wellbeing settings.

Whether you work in a day centre, arts organisation, clinical setting, outreach initiative or in freelance community arts, you are very welcome to join us.

We are delighted to be working alongside our partners at Ben Uri Gallery & Museum (North), Open Age and Octavia Support (North West), Stratford Circus Arts Centre (East), London Bubble Theatre Company (South East) and First Floor Space Gallery (South West) who will be the regular hosts of our groups in their respective areas.

 

Reflective Practice

The groups aim to provide a safe space for in-depth reflection on working practice: a space in which to step back and reflect on complex professional and supportive relationships and to discuss any aspect of your work and role including individual cases, approaches to engagement, and clinical and organisational dilemmas.

The groups will provide a forum in which to share ideas and to hear from practitioners from different professional backgrounds as to how they manage similar tensions in their roles and practice. They will offer a structure of support where the experience of all members of the group is the conduit and catalyst for learning and exploration.

They will be closed groups of up to 8 practitioners and the sessions will be led by trained facilitators.

We would ideally look for a commitment from members of the groups to attend multiple sessions to allow a group dynamic to develop.
