SOLD OUT RUNNING GROUPS WITH CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE – NICK LUXMOORE @ Churchdown Community Centre | Churchdown | England | United Kingdom

About the course

We live in groups and we depend absolutely on groups. We are social as well as solitary. Sometimes, when things go wrong, we need time on our own and help from another person. But, at other times, our problems can only be addressed by working with and through the groups we are naturally part of. In groups we can practise living and practise relationships; we can get feedback and develop our confidence; we can learn to understand and interact with other people.

This workshop is aimed at professionals who would like to start running groups with young people and at professionals already running groups who would like to develop their skills further. We will be imagining running groups whose purposes are to address issues such as bullying, anger, self-esteem, assertiveness, sexuality. There will be some theoretical input but the emphasis for the day will be practical and experiential – learning how to structure groups in order for young people to feel safe, learning useful exercises and having the chance to try them out.
