P.R.A.C. for Life Level Three
P.R.A.C. for Life Counsellor Training Level 3 - Course Content
In P.R.A.C. for Life Level III (also referred to as “Prac 3”) we enter the realm of leadership, continuing to evolve beyond ourselves to an awareness of our purpose and place in the universe. Level III focuses on group dynamics, offering specific training in group therapy and leadership skills. Students benefit from professional supervision, allowing them to hone skills responsibly.
The culminating exercise of the program is writing and delivering your ‘universal constitution’, which draws on your autobiographies from year 1 and 2, and articulates a commitment to putting your unique life purpose into action in all areas of your life.
The process of discovering the leader in self evolves through the application of these components:
Group Dynamics: Theory
The basics of therapeutic group theory and process are examined, primarily following Yalom’s model. Boundaries and ethics as they relate to group work, and recent developments in the field, are discussed.
Group Dynamics: Process and Interventions
Group interventions are discussed, and the process of group work and creating effective group exercises is examined.
Group Leadership: Skills and Practice
The facilitator of a group will largely determine where and how it goes, and thus the therapeutic stance in relation to groups is discussed. Students practice group process skills under supervision, in various formats.
Genogram Interpretation: Theory and Practice
Students learn how to interpret a genogram and lead a family of origin presentation from the theoretical perspective of Bowen’s family systems theory. Students apply their skills in leading family of origin presentations with Prac 1 students.
