In the early afternoon there is an invitation to safely reflect on your experience of your different roles between group meetings, plus a focus on our communication in the group, using TA as a framework for illuminating thinking about our experiences, and deciding how we might be and do differently. This is followed with a focus on extending and deepening understanding of specific TA concepts, with practical examples.
