Tips & Tools for the Art of Experiential Group Facilitation, Second Edition

The second edition of Tips & Tools eclipses the first with insights gained from another decade of experience in group facilitation and new information coming from the field of educational neuroscience. As a result, the ideas and methods focused on active engagement, ownership in learning, and facilitating meaningful reflection have been greatly expanded. The layout of information is more effective—experiential theory and perspectives, hands-on activities, and teachable moments flow from one chapter to the next—making this edition an essential resource for practicing and teaching the art of experiential group facilitation.
