PESSO BOYDEN ONLINE
Juliet has found a way to run PBSP groups online. Rather than the usual Zoom Rooms – she does it on Zoom webinars instead. This format has panelists – who are in the ‘main room’ and can be seen and heard, and attendees – who are not able to be seen or heard. Juliet moves partcipants between the two roles (panelist and attendee) during the workshop. For the check in, check out and sharing – everyone is a panelist. During a structure, just the client and therapist are panelists, and eveyone else is an attendee. If someone is asked to play a role, such as the Ideal Mother, they are promotoed to a panelist, so they can be seen and heard.
Thursday February 11 and Friday February 12 2021
8.45am start – 5.30pm each day GMT
Please join the webinar at 8.30 so we can start promptly at 8.45.
We hope to finish a little earlier, but the latest finish time will be 5.30pm.

Are strictly limited. There will be a maximum of 3 structures (client sessions) per day, i.e. a maximum of 6 people who have structures. There are spaces for observer participants, who are available to play roles and will attend the workshop.
Everyone is expected to attend for the whole day for both days. If this is likely to be difficult please discuss this in advance with Juliet
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED
> A clear diary for 2 days – where you don’t have to pick up your children, the phone is switched off, and you have two days completely clear of all working and household committments
> A quiet space where the phone is switched off, you will not be interrupted or have people walking across the background
> Some people like to use headphones for privacy
> It is best to use a laptop rather than a phone or tablet
> It’s a good idea to have a box of tissues nearby, a glass of water, and a comfortable chair!
> It is important to have a good signal. Be close to your router – hard wired if possible
> Close down all other google pages and software that might be using wifi bandwidth
STRUCTURES WILL BE ALLOCATED IN ADVANCE
Juliet will pre-allocate the structures, so that everyone knows when their turn is (let her know when booking if you have a preference for the timing of your structure. If you don’t request a specific slot then she will allocate the timings randomly).
You be sent two zoom links:
1) to come in as a panelist (fully visible), and
2) a second link to come in as an attendee (invisible)
This is so that if you lose signal and need to rejoin, during someone’s structure work, you can log back in and rejoin without surprising the client by suddenly appearing in the middle of their structure work!
BE READY 15 MINUTES BEFORE
Juliet opens the room 15 minutes before the start of the day, and everyone can log on to check their equipment is working. Everyone starts as a panelists (who are both seen and heard).
WHEN A STRUCTURE STARTS
Just before the structure starts Juliet sets it up so that just the client and Juliet are panelists, and everyone is an attendees (i.e. they are not visible on the main screen). Juliet also has a screen that she uses solely for placeholder(s) and doing holes in roles work. Thus we start with 3 screens. Juliet as therapist, the client and the placeholders / holes in roles screen.
When the client wants to enrol a figure to represent the voice of an ideal parent, let’s say an ideal mother,
> the client chooses the person
> Juliet changes their role from an attendee to a panelist, so they come into the main room and they can be seen and heard
> They rename themselves on their screen ‘Ideal Mother’
> The client chooses and enrols pillows/blankets etc to represent the Ideal Mother in the right place for them in the room they are in
> The person role-playing the Ideal Mother on the screen provides the voice for the client to hear, and eyes for the client to look into (if the client wants, Juliet can spotlight the ideal mother while they are talking – this makes her the main thing on the screen).
OBJECTS TO REPRESENT THE IDEAL FIGURES (YOU DON’T NEED ALL OF THESE)
Clients are asked to have available a selection of things they can use to represent the Ideal Parents, for example:
> very large cushions are really useful to represent an ideal parent(s)
> long body pillow or bolster is good to represent an ideal parent(s)
> bean bag(s) and or wheat bag(s) (eg used for neck pain – these are on ebay for about £5) can represent the hand of an ideal parent, or their arm
> weighted blanket if you have one (I bought one for £20)
> soft blanket(s)
> a scarf or selection of scarves
The one proviso, is that no object should be ‘loaded’. In other words, if it is the most precious velvet cushion, hand sewn by your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend, then we won’t use that. Or if it was a present from a father that you felt ambivalent towards, again, it might be best not to use that. Please only bring neutral objects – scarves, cushions, blankets etc.
Any request to change (eg defer to alternative dates) or cancel your place at this workshop, that is made at less than 21 days before the course start date will be charged in full. Any cancellation / amendments / requests to defer before 21 days, will be subject to a 12.5% handling charge.
This will be sent by email after you have filled in the feedback form
WHAT OPTIONS ARE THERE FOR FACE TO FACE PBSP WORK WITH JULIET
At this stage (November 2020), the only face to face workshops Juliet is planning for 2021 are the two residentials. There will be one in March on 22-25 2021, and one in September 27-30 2021.
Both these residential workshops are full, and we are currently taking people on a waiting list.
TO JOIN THE WAITING LIST FOR ONE OF THE RESIDENTIALS CLICK HERE
https://forms.gle/qSsMDYjrLnm9fYQR7 Due to Covid -19 we expect there may be places that become available, so do sign up if you are interested. And please keep the dates free!
WHY THE RESIDENTIALS ARE THE ONLY FACE TO FACE WORKSHOPS PLANNED AT PRESENT
The reason Juliet is planning residentials is that they feel safer than a 2 day group where people travel home on public transport at the end of the day, or go to a b and b or hotel, and/or eat in a restaurant. Once we have arrived at EarthSpirit and are ‘on site’, the group creates a ‘pod’. No one has to leave, and we don’t meet anyone else. Temperatures are taken every morning, and she will have finger prick blood tests on site for everyone to take at the start of the workshop, and she uses a ‘fogger’ to disinfect the room twice a day.
