Content of the Day:
* This workshop will explore what happens in groups and how we can strive to ensure that young people (and others) have a safe, trusting and positive experience of groups.
* We will work creatively looking at our own experiences of groups, group process and facilitation, whilst thinking about the particular needs of young people.
* Throughout this workshop, we will refer to relevant theory and we invite group sharing to create an enjoyable learning environment.
