Fundamentals of the Wheel of Consent for Psychotherapists
One year | 3 modules
Live on Zoom
The Wheel Of Consent is a theoretical framework and a useful tool for psychotherapists who want to support their clients in unpacking relational dynamics. This course is not only about acquiring additional knowledge, but also enhancing your existing skills, and creating new resources both for your clients, and for yourself.
We are delighted that our Patron, Dr Betty Martin, is also one of our tutors
Betty, and facilitators from the School of Consent, will lead our module on ‘Consent, boundaries and relationships, including working with the Wheel of Consent and Three-minute Game’ on 23-24 April 2022.
“As a trainer and consultant in the field of relationship and sex therapy for several decades, I strongly welcome this initiative. Within a field in which polarisations can prevail – from the ‘politically correct’ to the ‘one size fits all’ – I believe that Affinity will competently navigate a middle path. Affinity will attend to issues – some for personal development, some more professional – that often fall by the wayside in training, such as men’s issues, young people and mental health, cultural and religious differences, and neurodiversity. I am not surprised Betty Martin has agreed to be Affinity’s patron. I am happy to be associated with Affinity.”
