Imagining in Systemic Practice – Saturday, October 4, 2014

A workshop contributing to systemic clinical practice and leadership practice. CPD

This workshop engages with frameworks and vocabulary for experiencing, making sense of and acting within, living moments, in ways that enrich practitioners’ and clients’ imagination and agency in making social worlds.

Imagining is understood as a relational, discursive and dialogic activity and practice, and ways of making sense and relating reflexively to imaginative processes will be offered in these terms.

Drawing on examples from clinical and organisational practice we will combine systemic and contemporary psychoanalytic concepts to link emotion, reflection and action to conscious and unconscious narratives. We will invite you into sensibilities for how games of imagining are framed and played. You will be developing language and practice in relation to CMM (Coordinated management of meaning) practical theory, incorporating meaningful concepts for the less ‘known’, the partially ‘known’ and the emergent new knowing in communicative processes. You will locate your own practice in these frameworks in relation to clinical and leadership settings.
