GAPS Recommends

 Systems–centered® (SCT®) training introduces an innovative approach to change that can be applied to work with individuals, couples, groups and organisations. This training provides theoretical understanding, skills practice and experiential group work using SCT’s functional subgrouping. SCT is based on Yvonne Agazarian’s Theory of Living Human Systems.

With Fran Carter, Rowena Davis, Susan Gantt, Ray Haddock, Juliet Koprowska, Annie MacIver and Mike Maher.

The annual training week in York is well–established and offers six parallel courses to meet participants’ developing requirements. Two courses are open to all, and four depend on prior SCT experience and training.

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.
