Psychology A & Psychology B - Group Leader: Jill Playford
I lead 2 psychology groups and although we cover the same topics in both, they are quite different. One is a larger group with over 20 members which meets at SWESRS and the other is smaller with 15 members that meets in a group member’s home. The content is delivered from an educational background rather than a therapy one.
We meet monthly and hope that each group session will include a mixture of theoretical input, discussion and debate. We cover an individual topic that affects all of us and is related to psychology each session.
The sessions are relaxed and informal and it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge of psychology or to carry out any research unless you want to. We focus a lot on individual opinions and experiences and value everyone’s contributions, as there is no right and wrong in psychology so all our opinions are valid. We don’t however try to offer solutions to individual and personal problems or issues.
