Event Description

A FREE EVENT @ Warwick University

 About the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to explore what we mean by reflective writing, and to provide an opportunity for participants to:

1) Write a number of pieces of reflective writing
2) Consider how they might use reflective writing for their own and their clients’ personal development in one-to-one or group settings
3) Discuss practical aspects in using reflective writing effectively and ethically.

We invite you to bring along with you a piece of your own reflective writing that you’d be prepared to share in confidence with a few other participants.

Cost (FREE!)

Thanks to our facilitators, on this occasion Warwick University have generously offered our venue and refreshments at no charge. There is therefore no participation fee, and the only expense for participants will be their own travel costs.

The number of places is limited, and we’ll allocate them on a first come, first served basis. So do register your interest as soon as possible to me. We’ll then confirm your place, and keep a reserve list in case any places become free subsequently.
