Practice and feedback from a skilled
facilitator who can help you to polish your skills are key to getting really
good at Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling.
These three days offer an
opportunity for you to gain that practice, along with targeted tuition to help
you to learn the nuances that arise within individual sessions, and that will
make all the difference to your facilitation skills. While the agenda will be
emergent and formed in response to
what is happening in the session, we’ll typically cover how to work with binds along
with other advanced concepts and there will also be an opportunity for formal
assessment for those working towards Certified Clean Facilitator Level 1.
will all take place in a small group (no more than 6 participants per trainer).
Join us for one or more of these 3-day modules on your way to becoming a
top-class Clean Facilitator.
Who's it for?
These modules are for you if you:
- Have completed Clean Language: Core Skills (possibly more than once), have the basics and want to take your practice further
- Want to get really good at these skills and understand that this will take time, lots of practice and expert feedback from a skilled facilitator
- Want to understand more of the nuances involved in this work, that may only arise from time to time in individual sessions
- Want to improve your modelling skills
- Want to learn how to work with binds and double binds
- Are interested in becoming a Certified Clean Facilitator (Level 1)
- Are willing to do what it takes to get really good at these skills
- Want to bring a client along and get feedback on how you work with someone who has not had training in Clean Language
We will be working in a small group (up
to 6 participants) and the majority of the time will be taken up with
individual sessions where one participant is the facilitator, one the client
and everyone else is observing, along with the trainer. At the end of each
session everyone will be invited to give feedback to the facilitator, so that
everyone learns from what’s happening. Or you can choose to have feedback and
coaching during the session. The
format will be similar each time while the content of the 3 days will vary
according to what happens in the individual sessions.
The trainer will be offering tuition
throughout the 3 days, based on what s/he is noticing. So binds (http://www.cleanlanguage.co.uk/articles/articles/323/1/Between-a-Rock-and-a-Hard-Place-Using-Symbolic-Modelling-with-Binding-Patterns/Page1.html)
will be taught when a bind arises in someone’s landscape, the PRO Model
will be revised when it becomes clear when there’s a need for that within the
group, and so on. In this way, no time is wasted; everything you learn will be
relevant to you and where you are with your learning right now.
If you wish to become a Certified Clean
Facilitator, there will be an opportunity within each module for formal
assessment against the Level
1 criteria (see attached pdf) – and when you are ready, we will video a session
to send to a second assessor. (No extra charge for assessment.) Most people
will need to attend three or more “Fine Tuning” modules to reach the required
skill level. We are aiming for excellence! Formal assessment is optional; if
you are already a certified facilitator or if you don’t want to be assessed or
certified, you are just as welcome and you will have just as much facilitation
and feedback time as everyone else. We will also set up peer group practice
sessions between modules.
Please note that to complete the
Certified Clean Facilitator Certification, you will also need to attend a Clean Space workshop. However,
you can take the Clean Space assessment during an in-person Fine Tuning module.
To join this programme, you must have attended Clean Language: Core Skills
at least once (or equivalent training from another provider). You should also
have read Clean Approaches for Coaches by Marian Way.
Frequently asked questions
What is Clean Language?
Clean Language is a simple set of questions developed by counselling psychologist David Grove. These questions are used with a person's own words to direct their attention to some aspect of their own experience. Asking these questions in the right context often results in an interesting new insight or the recognition of some new possibility. And if that new possibility is then questioned using Clean Language, the result can be quite profound. Clean questions invite people to consider their experience from different perspectives and they are often surprised by their own capacity to generate new, powerful and useful ideas about their own experience.
