This course is designed to develop skills to lead and facilitate group activities and discussions in a variety of community, professional and health settings.
We explore how to lay the foundations for effective group processes and what it takes to create safe spaces and keep participants engaged. We will develop the skills required to “hold the space” for groups and encourage healthy sharing and respectful exchange, while managing personalities and challenges.
