Maintaining focus and motivation in the exam prep period can often prove challenging for students when they have completed their formal TA training. Exam Preparation Groups provide ongoing stimulus, motivation, support and encouragement for those who are en route to their Diploma or CTA exam.
Learning is through active participation in the group, and includes advanced theory discussion, supervision of client work, managing the practicalities of the exam process itself, written exam support and mock oral exams. The groups aim to develop skills, competencies and perspectives that are part of becoming a fully fledged TA counsellor and/or psychotherapist, as well as providing peer support, and opportunity for celebration too!
Physis Scotland will be offering an ongoing Exam Preparation Group (6 days over 10 months) starting in September 2020 to support students who are preparing for their Diploma, accreditation or CTA exam. The group will be facilitated by Helen Rowland, PTSTA.
The group will be open to students who have completed Foundation Year and Years 1 and 2 of Advanced TA training. It will be a closed group and have a maximum of 6 members.
All members of the groups will be in regular clinical supervision and will be engaged in preparation for their Diploma, accreditation or CTA exam.
The content of the days will be contracted for at the beginning of each day, depending on the needs and wants of the group members.
