A practical approach to change

This event will be in person again!

For those new and curious about SCT, as well as those with previous SCT experience.

Foundations of Systems–Centered Training, Led by Mike Maher

  • The group will learn about SCT theory, practise skills and work as an experiential group. We will use functional subgrouping to explore differences instead of reacting to or scapegoating them. Please assess yourself to ensure this is a good time for you to participate in an experiential training.
  • Places limited, sign up soon!

Making Work Roles Work (for us and our organisations), Led by Susan Gantt & Rowena Davis

  • The goals of this workshop are to understand how to use SCT as we work as a team member and explore how to use SCT to view our work contexts.
  • This experiential workshop is for people wanting to apply their skills and explore their challenges in work roles. The content and experience of this workshop change every time, so if you’ve been before, you’ll still have a new experience.
  • Places limited, so sign up soon!

Workshops, Conferences & Other Events

What would you like to attend?

We are eager to offer a full calendar of online and in-person workshops, conferences, lectures and discussion groups.  We are really keen to hear from people who have something to share with our audience.  We would like to hear from you about ideas for an event.

Do you know someone who might like to present to a GAPS audience? Is that you?


Writing for the GAPS Website

Do you have an idea for a short article you could write for GAPS?  We warmly invite those involved in social work practice and educators to think about what they would like to say to an audience with an interest in systemic thinking and therapeutic and relationship-based social work practice.

Our aim is to bridge the gap between practice and academic writing whilst opening up spaces for contemplation and stimulating discussion.

We encourage practitioners, educators and researchers to propose articles of 1,000 words or more for publication on this site and for discussion among our community.

We offer an authors' fee of £400 per article.
