For those who have some experience in the facilitation of groups, this workshop offers the opportunity to enhance and practice skills needed for the effective management of the group process. Particular attention will be given to the identification and removal of obstacles to cohesive group effectiveness, and how to lead productive, engaging meetings will be examined. This program is designed as a follow-up to the CAMLS workshop, Facilitation Skills, offered in May 2002. Participation in that program, however, is not a prerequisite.

Topics of Discussion

  • The Dynamics of Effective Facilitation
  • A Model for Successful Meetings
  • Identifying and Clearing Blockages
  • Facilitating Consensus
Audience: Anyone with experience in the facilitation of groups. This workshop is an extension of the CAMLS Facilitation Skills program offered this past May.
