There can be many challenges associated with facilitating a support group, even more because of COVID-19. Groups are changing the way they connect with clients and people in need of support. To slow the spread of the virus while keeping our support groups active we have switched support groups to Zoom. Any meetings that do happen in person will be mask mandatory for all participants.
We understand this is a new way of doing things, even for experienced facilitators, and this facilitator training will focus on best practices for preventing and identifying burnout in addition to the standard facilitator 101 guide. This training will help establish the basics of how to lead virtual support groups, as well as how to build a safe space where everyone is able to share their voices and be heard. The first hour will be geared towards introductory material, while the second hour will invite current facilitators to share situations and best practices.
Group leaders and facilitators that operate support groups within the DC Center, as well as those interested in becoming a facilitator, are encouraged to come to learn, share challenges and solutions.
