Tutorials # 6

Group Therapy

Tutorials (in the sense of tutors speaking at students) have been to some extent replaced by group sessions in which the students present their work to others or else set tasks for each other to do in order to progress each others’ schemes. Tutors do not attend these sessions. This week each student, as I understand it, devised a 20 minute ‘game’ for the others to play on their scheme, which in some way moved their process forward. At the end of each session a newsletter is produced; here are issues one and two, also named as group therapy records. Looking from the outside, what is as important as the direct advice given is the mutual support, and encouragement to collectively suspend disbelief.
