Therapists and group facilitators will learn how to instantaneously engage group participants. They will learn how to switch from a didactic, instructional method of teaching to a more inclusive, participatory group engagement where participants can feel safe and comfortable quickly, are drawn into the group learning from the very beginning, and maintain their level of interest and engagement throughout the entire group activity.
Learning becomes more natural, ingrained, pragmatic, tangible, and much more easily ingrained through experiential learning principles. Group facilitators feel a lot more empowered, appreciated, and instrumental in the learning of the group participants. Trust, safety, connection, attention, participation and follow up become easier to establish and maintain.
Learned outcomes remain with participants for longer duration than other types of group learning.
