ecl South Africa have run a two day workshop in Johannesburg for educationalists and parents. It was led by the systemic practitioner Marianne Franke-Gricksch, who has pioneered the approach in schools and families in her home country of Germany and internationally. In the words of Janet Goldblatt (Hub Director), ‘It was an exceptionally inspiring workshop.  We had an opportunity to work with some ecl tools and all the teachers said that they would try and implement some of the systemic practice into their classrooms.  One of the teachers told me she will at least look at her kids now on a different way, through the eyes of their parents. Beautiful. Most of the teachers and Social Workers are interested in further training. It feels like the ecl community is expanding in Africa’
