RS POP UK, the Research Society for Process Oriented Psychology UK, is the national forum and organizing body for Process Work in the United Kingdom. It was founded as a non-profit organization in 1988. We now organize a full and exciting annual programme of workshops, classes, supervision, training and private therapy with teachers and therapists from the British and international Process Work Community.
As well as those formally training in Process Work, our members include people interested for personal or professional reasons. We enjoy our diversity of backgrounds - what draws us together is our common interest in Process Work and our aims, which are to
- Act as a network, keeping those interested in touch with what’s happening here
- Follow the spirit in individual and groups, and the spirit of the time
- Coordinate further training and research in Process Work in the UK
RSPOPUK is many things, not least a Research Society, constantly evolving and changing as its understanding of the dreaming body and its relationship to the world grows. RSPOPUK also coordinates public seminars and offers a diploma programme.
There are qualified Process Workers who register with RSPOPUK and continue to develop and hone their skills through continuous professional development. But most importantly it is a community of people who work, study and play together, and, as this programme shows, meet regularly in a variety of different ways. We welcome those who are interested in and want to participate in Process Work seminars and activities in the UK, but who do not necessarily wish to be involved with formal study. Also described in the programme are opportunities for the wider community to meet together beyond seminars and classes.
There is also the possibility of becoming a formal Member of RSPOPUK. Once a year, in the autumn, students, diplomates and others spend a weekend together, sharing and learning about research and the application and impact of Process Work, walking, playing and processing together, gaining a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of all the different roles within our community. Members are also welcome to attend and vote at the AGM. They have access to a Members email string and copies of minutes of all RSPOPUK Committee meetings.
We aim to make our organisation accessible to everyone interested in learning about Process Work and celebrate and welcome diversity among people in respect to culture, race, religion, sexual orientation, health, physical ability, age and more.
If you have a physical or sensory access need or have any concerns about attending a seminar, please discuss your specific requirements with the appropriate seminar organiser.
