This experiential workshop offers everyone who leads or aspires to lead a group or team the opportunity to engage in intensive personal and professional development over a 5-day period. Participants meet as a group led by Dr. Craig Whisker over two half-days and 3 full days to explore the particular purposes and goals that they identify and come to the workshop to achieve. This process involves self-presentation, interaction, teaching, coaching, supervised practice, making assessments, creating effective interventions, reviewing transcriptions of previous sessions, and involvement in each other’s learning. No previous group work leadership experience is necessary.
Dr. Craig Whisker gained his PhD in 2021 from La Trobe University in Melbourne researching cultural justice in the family therapy movement in Aotearoa New Zealand. He is a Certificated Educator and Psychodramatist with the Australian and Aotearoa New Zealand Psychodrama Association, and a Clinical Member and Accredited Supervisor with the Australian Association of Family Therapy. His social work education was on the Pūao-te-ata-tū inspired bi-cultural social work master’s programme at Victoria University of Wellington from 1990-91. He is currently the Psychotherapy Professional Leader at Te Whatu Ora Te Toka Tumai Auckland, and works in private practice as a family psychotherapist and psychodramatist.
