ICP+P Community Gathering

Let’s talk: conversations about community dynamics

Sunday, November 19th, 2023
1:30pm – 6:00pm Eastern Standard Time

River Road Unitarian Universalist Church

An ICP+P Free-to-Members Event
We are pleased to announce that we will award 4 CEs for full participation in this event.

Doors will open at 1 pm for socializing.
The program begins at 1:30.
The facility will be available after the program until 7 pm for additional socializing.

We are looking forward to coming together as community, in large group and in small groups, to clarify our hopes, values and identities as an institute that is dedicated to growth. By experientially examining the relational processes existing  within the group-as-a-whole, we will explore systemic change, group repair, and confront the conscious and implicit forces having effects on individuals, the organization, and groups within the organization. We will have the opportunity to address past and current injuries, with the help of facilitators, so that we may learn, heal and be stronger going forward.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Examine how roles emerge, are taken up, and are assigned to individuals by the group.
  2. Identify parallels between the large group and the small group dynamics.
  3. Interpret underlying forces that impact individuals, groups, and the organization.

All members and members in training are warmly invited. Registration closes on November 12, to allow for final recruitment of small group leaders.
