There will be no face-face community meeting in January. Please see the yellow box opposite.
The Person-Centred Community group meetings are open to anyone with a curiosity about the person-centred approach. We meet once a month on a Saturday morning and all newcomers are welcome. This is a drop-in meeting so you can come along and introduce yourself.
Our meetings are not facilitated. They are unstructured and develop according to what people bring in terms of their needs, interests and experiences. The aim is to offer a confidential atmosphere, one of respect and trust allowing people the chance to be open.
As this is a drop-in meeting, check with the other participants if you need an explicit agreement between yourselves for that meeting.
Meetings last for three hours and you may choose to count this towards your continuing professional development (CPD).
Venue, time and dates
Zoom meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month.
In-Person Meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month at the Friends' Meeting House in Ship Street, Brighton BN1 1AF (see map on left)
The Friends' Meeting House are not unfortunately able to accommodate us until further notice. There will therefore be no physical meeting this month (January). Watch this space - or the newsletter - for future information
Both the Zoom and In-Person meetings normally run from 9:30 to 12:30, with a short break at around 11 o'clock.
Please note, however, that (for the in-person meeting) there is currently no access to the kitchen, so, if you want refreshments, you will have to bring these yourselves. Please also remember to bring a mask. You won't need one at the meeting, but you will need one when moving around the rest of the building.
The cost is £5 to cover hire of the room. The Zoom meeting if free.
If, incidentally, you can't manage £5, then we will not insist. By the same token, if you can manage a little more than £5, your additional support will be appreciated.
Zoom meetings will continue in parallel with the physical meetings. Please, however, see the NEWS item for more details on this as well.
We also organise workshops with nationally and internationally respected facilitators. Click here to see what workshops we have coming up...
