Overview

Ernest McCoy has extensive experience as a facilitator and educator in many different therapy modalities. He is also a jazz musician, a social activist, and a former fireman and Black Panther. He has worked as a psychotherapist and psychiatric social worker in prisons, universities and hospitals.

This will be an interactive group process workshop with didactic and dynamic experiments designed to facilitate learning and connection about ourselves and patterns of behavior we bring into the relationships we co-create with others.

Workshop participants will be invited to meet in full presence with and through humor and curiosity in acceptance of self and others.

Using lecture, group process and experiments, the workshop is designed to encourage connection with oneself and learning about the patterns of behavior we bring to relationships we co-create with others.

Activities will be calibrated to the strengths/challenges and possibilities of the participants and will include movement, singing, appropriate touching and personal sharing/reflection.

How to fly a 747…is open to anyone who chooses to be present with others while also learning more about themselves, i.e. students, graduates, experienced and novice psychotherapists, and to those curious about themselves and group process and those who relate to any aspect of themselves mentioned above (jazz musicians too).

In this workshop, participants will experience:

  • LEARNING (ABOUT SELF, OTHERS, PATTERNS AND POSSIBILITIES)
  • GROWTH (IN SELF AND IN RELATIONSHIP)
  • FRUSTRATION AND SATISFACTION (WITH REGARDS TO THE STRENGTHS AND LIMITATIONS OF SELF, OTHERS AND SOCIAL/STRUCTURAL SITUATIONS)
