INTRODUCTION TO SYSTEMS-CENTERED THEORY AND METHODS, SCT
6/13/2023 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Eastern
SCT is about “integrating differences in the apparently similar and similarities in the apparently different.” In this workshop we’ll learn about the SCT method and we’ll experience it through the method of sub-grouping.
SCT is about “integrating differences in the apparently similar and similarities in the apparently different.”
While in a meeting, have you ever noticed that a group of people share a certain perspective – and you assume that they agree on most everything around that issue? It turns out, if you dig a little deeper, that they don’t agree on everything, and that there are actually different viewpoints within an apparently aligned/cohesive group. And vice versa – we sometimes assume that when a group of people disagree on an issue, that there are no similarities that they can agree on – but that’s often not the case.
The SCT theory is simple, and/but the practice is not easy. In this workshop we’ll learn about the SCT theory and we’ll explore it through the method of sub-grouping. Participants will practice reflective listening and check in to see if they have understood what others have communicated. We will access thoughts and feelings, and focus on the here and now. We’ll try to be curious about the unknown, which is likely to reduce anxiety about what we do not know.
