A practical approach to change

Because of the continuing Coronavirus restrictions, the event will be online this year

13 – 14 September 2021

For those new and curious about SCT, as well as those with previous SCT experience.

Foundations of Systems–Centered Training

Led by Mike Maher & Lotte Paans

  • The group will learn about SCT theory, practise skills and work as an experiential group. We will use functional subgrouping to explore differences instead of reacting to or scapegoating them. Please assess yourself to ensure this is a good time for you to participate in an experiential training.
  • Places limited, sign up soon!


Taking up our roles in organisations – what helps and what gets in the way?

Led by Rowena Davis & Madeline O’Carroll

  • The group will apply SCT theory and maps, including Role, Goal and Context and the Person-as-a-System, to explore what helps and what gets in the way of taking up our organisational roles. We will learn about how the system dynamics impact us and how we influence the system. Using the SCT functional subgrouping method, we will integrate differences and build our capacity to be a systems member, leader, manager or consultant.
  • Places limited, sign up soon!

15 – 17 September 2021

Large Group

Open to everyone interested in applying SCT in a large group context, and can be taken in combination with any of the two-day workshops or as a stand-alone.

Led by Susan Gantt, Fran Carter & Ray Haddock

  • The goal of this large group is to develop the inter-person system using functional subgrouping so that the large group can emerge itself and what it contains as a social context with both survival and transformational goals.

12 – 14 September 2021 (Part 1) & 28 – 30 October 2021 (Part 2)
Intermediate Trainings

Intermediate Leadership Development: Mentor Training

For members who have completed Intermediate Skills Training and beyond

  • This is a 2-part intensive training building on and reinforcing the learning from the Intermediate Skills Training with further theoretical discussion, skill building, videotaped practicum session, and force field review.
  • By application only. If you are considering this step, discuss with your trainer and contact Fran Carter carter2229@aol.com for an application form. Complete application due 25 July 2021.
