Description
 
“Facilitation is an art, rather than a science. By its very nature it is an experiential practice… it takes practice balanced with reflection and more practice… it is an ever dynamic process of give and take, learning and development.”

Group facilitators face the dilemma of how best to assist a group of participants in learning deeply. Experiential education requires participant activity—mental or physical—and enthusiasm to guide sessions to meet the group’s needs and objectives. Facilitators, then, must keep in mind key ingredients to making sessions work while remaining open to the group’s direction.

Tips and Tools explores the facilitator’s role in groups of all kinds and offers tools and activities to enhance group sessions.
The author reflects on aspects of effective facilitating, including personal style and a firm understanding of group backgrounds. Strategies are offered to increase participant involvement and growth through efficient sequencing and reflection.

“Tips&Tools is a straightforward and complete overview of facilitation. After one reading of Tips and Tools, I redesigned the focusing and sequencing sections of my own facilitator training.”
Steven Simpson, Ph.D., Recreation Management and Therapeutic Recreation, University of Wisconsin La Crosse.

“The book is a great resource for anyone wanting to increase the breadth of his or her processing toolbox. Everything is organized logically and is written in a way that is easy to understand, and more importantly use. I especially enjoyed the personal examples Jennifer used throughout the book that brought the concepts to life. I will be recommending this book to all the facilitators I train and work with.”
Sam Sikes, M.A., Founder, DoingWorks, Inc.
