About the workshop

There will be relevant input which you can apply to your particular setting, time to discuss ideas with colleagues, exercises to ground ideas in experiential learning and the opportunity to explore the process of a group in the here and now.

Effective groups bring change and learning. How effective they are is greatly influenced by the ability of the facilitator, team leader or manager. There are many aspects to group leadership and facilitation and this one-day workshop will focus on a number of key areas:

  • Groupwork in Context
  • Planning and preparation
  • Facilitation: the role, breadth and introduction to skillful interventions
  • Gestalt concepts and tools for group facilitators
  • Working in the Here and Now
