Interpersonal Process Group
Facilitator: Bhavna Bharvani
An 8 week closed group of 90 minute sessions for people who struggle with relating to others.
Do you find it difficult to connect with others?
Or find that you tend not to have the depth of relationships that you want?
Interpersonal process groups provide a powerful opportunity to learn more about ourselves and how we relate to other people in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.
Through interactions with other group members and the facilitator, participants can gain greater insight into how and why they react the way they do in interpersonal situations. With this new awareness, members are invited to experiment with different ways of interacting with people and can learn to connect with others in a more authentic way.
Interpersonal Process Groups are typically unstructured with no formal agenda for each group meeting. Participants are asked at the beginning of each meeting to 1) mindfully pay attention to their thoughts, feelings, and reactions as they occur moment to moment as the group takes place, and 2) report on what they notice. As this process is facilitated, participants will learn the impact they have on each other, how people are perceiving them, and what influences their reactions to others.
An initial 30 minute session with the facilitator will be necessary prior to the start date to assess whether the group is beneficial for you.
Cost: HK$4,000 for 8 sessions 80% attendance mandatory.
