A brand new TA based outdoor course for 2020 at The Berne Institute Kegworth!

This programme is the first of its kind - an introductory experience into ecotherapy and holistic education practice and theory. Hosted by the Berne Institute and delivered by Hayley Marshall, PTSTA (P) and Giles Barrow TSTA (E), participants will be given opportunities to explore how nature, landscape and environment can provide powerful agency into clinical and educational practices.

Whilst ecotherapy and holistic education have been around for some years, they have, so far, remained outside of mainstream TA theory and practice. We see this programme being at the growing edge in terms of integrating these timely, earth-spirit based themes into the work of the TA practitioner. Whether it’s with a view to healing trauma with clients, building connection to natural agency, or promoting holistic development through learning, this programme will engage the practitioner with the outdoors, as classroom or therapy space, or perhaps something quite new entirely.

The workshops will each involve extended periods working outside in the local landscapes and engage participants beyond the familiar theoretical and applied territories, into the somatic and embodied regions of what it is to be a therapist and educator. Topics will include working therapeutically with protocol, symbolic movement and experience, script, liminality, cycles of development, story and myth, clarifying vocational purpose and eldership. Practical aspects of working outdoors with clients will also be covered, and it is intended that participants try out ideas in between workshops, feeding back and having supervision incorporated into the process.

Some TA Knowledge required but generally all welcome!
