Pluralistic Practice Network
The Pluralistic Practice Network is a loose affiliation of practitioners with an interest in the pluralistic approach.
The network exists both virtually–via this website and Facebook –and in real-time, with a range of regular network group meetings.
There is an over-arching pluralistic practice steering group that meets monthly to oversee–and help develop–the network, and to support organisation of the annual conference. To get in touch please email Steering@pluralisticpractice.com
We welcome contributions to our blog. If you are interested in submitting a blog post to be featured on our page, you can see the outline here. If you would like more information on this, or have something you think would be a good fit, you can get in touch on Blog@pluralisticpractice.com.
Creativity and Storytelling Group
We gather monthly on the last Saturday of the month from 10-11am over Zoom. The Creativity Gathering is a space to exchange ideas and gain inspiration about creative approaches to therapy. We are open to therapists from any modality, whether qualified or in training, honouring each other’s perspectives and experiences. We gather to share stories, ideas, images, sounds and symbols. We are a group joined by common interests with a passion for healing and creative expression. We join together because we want to: we gather, we don’t meet. Meetings are for the working week, we want to start the weekend in a spirit of joy, connection and inspiration.
If you would like to make contact with fellow practitioners who are interested in working pluralistically with such creative methods as storytelling and art, please come along and enrich the gathering with your presence. More details about these meetings are available in a range of recent blog posts. Get in touch on Creativity@pluralisticpractice.com
We meet once a month on a Wednesday evening to discuss the more practical side of carrying out pluralistic inquiry. This group is for anyone who would like to discuss their own research project or research in general. It will also be a place to connect with other researchers, and for any practitioners who would like to become more involved in research projects but who aren’t affiliated with an academic institution. Please contact Research@pluralisticpractice.com for more information or to get involved.
Inclusivity and Diversity Group
