WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

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

 

This workshop will cover how to use trauma informed facilitation practices to plan, create and design. Using trauma informed principles of facilitation, we will cover the structure and format of facilitated experience, review how to create an agenda, design a facilitated experience, and how to handle disclosures, disruptions and other facilitation challenges. This workshops is for facilitators and trainers who lead community based conversations with adults where difficult topics may arise or in depth discussions may occur. Participants in this workshop will learn how to better navigate situations that may arise with adult participants in a facilitated experience.
