This is a taster session for anyone interested in enrolling for "Facilitating Writing for Wellbeing Groups(1)". It is an exploration of whether an enrolment onto the longer (6 week) course feels like the right step for you at the moment or whether it might be a good idea to undertake further preparation first. During the morning, you will be given specific writing invitations by the tutor (Elizabeth). There will also be guided/facilitated group discussion/reflection. Following the session, you and Elizabeth will both have ideas about what should happen next and Elizabeth will be available to advise as to enrolment details for the Facilitation course or, alternatively, other appropriate study/activity to allow preparation for a future enrolment.
