The magic of Centering groups stems from skillful and savvy group facilitation. This engaging two-day workshop will prepare TACHC facilitators to launch their first groups and gain confidence in their facilitative leadership through a variety of skill-building and interactive learning activities. Together we will walk through a sample group visit and explore the basic principles underlying the group approach to the Centering model of group care. Participants will have two full days to practice facilitation and group management skills using mindful listening, Acknowledge, Refer, Return (ARR) and strategic questioning; plan and lead a Centering group experience; and receive valuable feedback.
