Engagement Strategies for Support Group Facilitators

To maintain a successful support group, group facilitators must continue to engage and re-engage their group members with different tactics and strategies. This webinar will provide effective tools that a facilitator can use to keep their group members engaged and coming back each meeting!

During the webinar we will discuss:

  • Why engagement is important
  • How disclosure can be used to engage with individuals
  • What the barriers to engagement are and how to overcome those barriers
  • Re-engagement strategies that may be useful when attempting to re-engage those who have stopped attending the group
  • Creative tools that can be used to keep participants engaged in a support group
