Organisational Psychotherapy Taster

Session type: Workshop
Session duration: 60 minutes

About this Workshop

Organisational therapy offers a non-directive approach to addressing some of the dysfunctions present in any organisation. It allows the organisation to grow in self-awareness and capability by seeing itself more clearly, and then finding its own solutions to some of its more pressing issues.

Come along to this workshop for a high-level overview of organisational therapy and to experience some organisation-specific therapeutic approaches.
