Are you a facilitator who enjoys bringing people together? And you feel like each new group and its dynamic gives you a new riddle about how interactions among participants work and develop? Facilitation is all about people interacting with each other, and it can be quite a challenge to understand the intragroup dynamics as there is no one-size-fits-all solution.

This thematic workshop will help you understand better how the group functions and evolves. You will explore how to analyze intragroup dynamics and specific group effects and get equipped with main theories and models behind it and learn how to analyze intragroup dynamics and specific group effects. Moreover, you get the chance to bring in your own cases and questions, and to receive collegial advice from our facilitators as well as your peers on it.
