Practitioners in the NGO sector are often expected to facilitate groups with clients in addition to their primary role.This may mean that workers are facilitating groups on an irregular basis and may not feel confident to manage the dynamic in the room.This training will look at some of the more common “tricky” situations that facilitators may face in their groups and provide ideas and strategies to work with what’s happening in the room.Participants will also be given an overview of the impact of trauma on neuro-development and how this can play out in the room.This will be an interactive session, particularly suited to new or less experienced group facilitators. 

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the Four Brains and the impact of trauma on behaviour

  • How to see “therapeutic moments” and use them to respectfully challenge participants
