We, Chris (McConnell; Ireland, Norway) and Valerie Kiel (Germany, The Netherlands), two passionate FC-therapists, met during the ACBS-World Conference in Parma in 2011 and started collaborating online the same year. Through our own online training, peer supervision and therapy, we have experienced the benefits of online work firsthand. Online connections are an easy way to create accessible, powerful learning spaces for everyone, anywhere.
In 2012, we started facilitating online peer intervision meetings. We called these meetings "Drop In groups" because people could drop in whenever they felt the need to get support by peers. The meetings turned out to be lots of fun and a great way to give back to the community. Besides this, it became quickly clear that there was a real need for networked learning opportunities within the ACBS community.
That's why we are very happy that we have been joined by Holly Yeats (USA), Tim Gordon (Canada) and Christophe Cazauvieilh (France) in the meantime to faciliate our peer support meetings. With the three on board, we will be able to offer you more meetings in English and even some in French by Christophe.
We hope that you will continue to enjoy our meetings and look forward to connecting with you online again soon! Should you have any questions about the meetings, drop us a line via the contact form.
Warm regards, Valerie, Chris, Holly, Tim, and Christophe
