Safe Ground - Using drama to educate prisoners and young people at risk in the community


Reflective Group

Since April Safe Ground has been running a weekly reflective group. We meet for up to an hour and a half to share an open space for a therapeutically informed conversation about what is happening, what we feel about it and how that may be affecting our inner and outer worlds.

The reflective group is not therapy- but it is based on some therapeutic ideas of the power of the group, the shared ‘matrix’ of experience and emotions between us and the importance of thinking and being together.

The group has no particular rules; and is boundaried by time, awareness of each other’s presence, a facilitator and a clear set of sign up and registration instructions for security.

We invite anyone interested in sharing their thoughts and feelings, or simply who might want to find a way to be with other people free from judgement, expectation or censorship for a short while, to join us.

The group is free at the moment (although we may start to charge in the future); and we really hope it is useful to a wide range of people that have family members in prison, that practice art and social care work, that are studying, volunteering, working, caring, struggling, developing or looking for opportunities to connect.
