The role of a group facilitator is to ensure that group members are fully able to participate, interactions among participants go smoothly and that the group achieves its intended goal. Sometimes as a facilitator, you have to discuss difficult topics as part of a workshop, training or facilitated experience. Elements of a facilitated experience may not always go as planned especially if the group is discussing a difficult topic or sharing personal stories or narratives. As a facilitator, you want to be prepared in any situation and create the best possible experience for participants in a group
