Changing Places: From Facilitator to Mutual Support: A Guide for Women's Support Groups

This guide was created for women's groups, but other types of group can also benefit from the content and process ideas. Section one defines the role of the facilitator and explores different facilitation styles. Section two discusses a procedure for transitioning to mutual support. Section three offers a structure for group meetings and basic ground rules. Section four looks at common problems in groups and how to solve them. Section five shares exercises for building self-esteem, coping with separation and loss and dealing with conflict in the group.
