What a very enjoyable training, I attended on the 13th and 14th January 2022!!
Group Radical Oppenness Foundation Level Training or GRO for short.
This was led by Rachel Egan and Richard Booth. They discovered that some clients attending dialectical behaviour therapy, were actually being taught skills, which were the opposite to their needs. They explored how over control was actually the issue, not undercontrol as once thought.
They found that clients sometimes need to explore ways to 'soften' the over control strategies they use to cope in life.
Themes of distance in relationships, rigidity and inhibited emotional strategies are the focus, using a safe supportive group process and focused exercises to help clients explore ways to live more comfortably.
