Good groups don’t just happen – they are created by a facilitator who is first able to establish safety within the group and then follow and direct the group process for the best advantage of all in the group, whether it is a therapy group, class, lecture or other group setting. This workshop is geared to psychotherapists, mental health professionals, trainers, creative arts therapists, religious education leaders and Sunday school teachers, educators and others who want to increase their group skills, including skills with safe role play and other action methods. Focus of the training will be:
The three stages of group process
- How to select and identify action-oriented exercises to develop cohesiveness within the group.
- How to ready the group for action and interaction.
- Working with the resistant group member.
