An opportunity to talk informally to the Courses Director, Debra Nash, about the courses on offer. These sessions are free of charge, however we do ask that you register prior to attending, by contacting the administrator at email@example.com
Café Psychologique in Manchester
This will be a place where people can meet and talk about life, over a drink, from a psychological perspective.
GAN hosts quarterly Friday meetings which are addressed by qualified group analysts. These meetings are open to all members of GAN. They provide an opportunity for those with an interest in group analysis to develop their thinking alongside others in a creative group environment.
Group Analytic Supervision
Group Analysis North offers supervision for all those who are currently involved in running groups or are thinking of setting up a group.
Being a member of a supervision group provides an opportunity for therapists to develop their clinical practice and identity as a group analyst alongside peers in a creative and supportive environment.
The Median Group
If you want to explore group dynamics, conflict, change and team development; come and join the Median Group. The Median Group comprises 10-20 individuals keen to understand the groups they are part of and strengthen their professional selves through their group analytic understanding.
Work Reflection Group
The work reflection group is a form of supervision group in which participants are given the opportunity to reflect upon their work using group analytic ideas. Participants are helped to explore their work with clients and colleagues and the group and organisational context in which it takes place. Students who have completed the Foundation and Diploma courses may apply to join a work reflection group for a year after they have completed either course subject to availability.

For students wishing to have more time to think about whether to pursue their training to the next level, we offer a small number of places in a therapy group to those who have completed a Foundation or Diploma course. The therapy-only option allows students the flexibility to take some time out, whilst retaining their link to the group analytic training community in Manchester. Students considering this option should ask to speak to the Courses Director.
Workshops and bespoke in-house training
Group Analysis North hosts a variety of workshops providing CPD activities for qualified Group Analysts and also for those who are interested in groups and/or work with or in groups. GAN also facilitates in-house training for Trusts and Services which may wish to provide CPD events for a number of staff or even whole departments.
