If you work with rehabilitation, mental health, within the community, in a humanitarian field or are interested in group work…then this book and webinars are for you!
We previously shared that Stone Flowers was featured in a book by Routledge – Groupwork with Refugees and Survivors of Human Rights Abuses. We’re delighted to report that the book has been receiving incredible reviews from across the sector and that you can find out more about projects featured in the book through a series of new webinars.
Here’s the webinar in which Jeremie, a Stone Flowers member, discusses group work with other contributors (this is the second webinar in the series, you can start with the first here if you like):
The book (and webinars) draw on multiple theoretical approaches, with practitioners running groups in different settings. The voices of participants demonstrate the variety, creativity, and value of group and community approaches for recovery. Chapters are divided into three sections, covering: community-based approaches; groups that work through the medium of “body and soul”; and group approaches that focus on change through the spoken word.
Reviewed by BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), Therapy Today and UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) it’s wonderful to see we are not the only ones raving about this book! Others are saying:
