Writing Your dissertation Workshop
For students of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage
With Sharon Bond
3rd February 2018
North London Group Therapy, 9 Manor Gardens, London N7 6LA
Training to become a therapist involves many challenges. The written dissertation however, seems to create a particular kind of challenge for both students of colour and their training organisations as issues of identity, competence and vulnerability merge into, what can sometimes be, painful impasses. In this workshop we will be addressing each individuals unique challenges as well as exploring common themes within a spirit of shared learning.
With the support of therapeutic practitioner, Sharon Bond, who is well versed in this area and has many years of experience supporting students through the dissertation process we will be exploring:
– translating your competence onto paper
– the areas of the writing process that are personally challenging
– what informs you in your writing
– the process of finding your voice.
Who should attend the training?
Trainee psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists of African, Asian and Caribbean heritage.
