I finally was able to do the group facilitator training at WRACand it was everything I expected and more. I am now (maybe?) ready to effectively facilitate group meetings. I am planning to offer a group at WRAC in the summer–I’m thinking a support group for those who live with the chronically ill would be a good topic for me.
One thing I also learned during my training is to use a lot of icebreakers to make people feel comfortable.
