Facilitating a support group can be extremely rewarding, yet challenging at times. The New Jersey Self-Help Group Clearinghouse is presenting a free workshop on Saturday, from 10am-3pm at the Robert Wood Johnson Fitness & Wellness Center in Old Bridge. This workshop is designed for persons who are currently, or will be, facilitating any type of self-help support group. This interactive workshop uses a variety of learning techniques including open discussions, self-evaluation quizzes, role playing, strategy sharing, and small group exercises to create a fun and informative workshop. It is an opportunity for group leaders to meet with others to exchange ideas, solutions and techniques to make the role of facilitator easier and more rewarding.
