MWP offers an initial one day training session for men and women interested in applying non-therapeutic applications of “action methods” in group work facilitation.
Action methods are based largely on the Psychodrama process originated by J.L.Moreno and have an easy to use application for anyone working with groups of people.
They impart significant value to improve the way we work together in the world and help create a container for people for people to work with difference and diversity to make good things happen.
Action methods also provide a way to disrupt and challenge the normal patterns of thinking and behaving so individuals in groups can discover something new or different about themselves and the way they currently function.
The program provides a whole person framework (philosophy and methodology) and experiential skills training in group facilitation. Participants develop the skills and ability to facilitate any group to meet its purpose.
The experiential nature of the workshop will introduce participants to the attitudes, personal qualities and presence that distinguishes a person centered facilitator, grounded in place, space and grace.
Participants are coached and receive feedback from the program leader and participants as they facilitate the group.
You will learn to:
- Understand the role of a facilitator and the group development cycles.
- Clarify, identify and create a group purpose.
- Create a safe and empowering group culture.
- Learn the whole personhood approach and be present to self, others and the group.
- Practice a range of interventions, processes and techniques appropriately within the group.
- Be comfortable with a wide range of behaviors and handle conflict effectively.
- Recognise and work with different energy levels in self, others and the group.
