This done a verbally allows for a Pre-screening and Informed Consent. You Begin building the relationship immediately. •Glasser's five motivations to what a client wants: fun, freedom, power, security, love and belonging. (1998). Facilitation Logistics THE PREMISE Client is at the center of the experience
There must be client buy-in/a want or expectations as the driving motivator.
And establishment of a client/facilitator relationship which creates an environment of comfort and is based on shared knowledge of the client goal. Pre-Group Logistics Allow time for processing, in a non-distracting area, not rushed and it does not have to be at the end; sometimes less activity is more. There are many different types of groups. Match activity to group and goals. Have a back-up activity if the activity does not match the client group. The Therapeutic Process starts on the personal level before you get to course be: organized, calm and open. Study by shows that therapeutic success increases when the client perceives the facilitator as knowledgeable , presentable and attractive. ( Whiston, 2009) Session design. The key for success is to establish and agree on what the client wants from the experience. •What challenge courses do to people regarding anxiety and learning zone.

themselves The experience will impact the client in three ways. This is where the process impacts the client. Be empathic not sympathetic, show unconditional
positive regard and congruence. (Rogers, 1965). Rule on facilitator; talking over 50% is too much. It is the client’s job to draw conclusions from the experience (Knapp, 2007).

You never know how they feel you assume you do. You make it about you if you say this ..’how did you cope’ (Knapp). A Common issue is not listening but rather being ready to say what you think as soon as they stop talking (Knapp).

Don’t be afraid to use silence. When asking questions always ask about the solution not the problem. Use Scaling questions: both therapeutic and diagnostic. You feel..... because.... When paraphrasing paint the picture for the client. Create imagery of goal for the client.. Don’t let clients to try to get you to take sides, be neutral. Direct clients to talk to each other or the group. Use of 'I feel' statements. Avoid barriers in between the client and you. S.O.L.E.R: Sitting Open, Leaning In, Eyes, Relaxed. Client Resistance Resistance is caused by the split between two parties; avoid this by getting consensus on goals and don’t push your goals. Know the different types of client resistance and have strategies ready that suit you. Eg. Passive/aggressive distracting, clowning. ‘yeah buts’ caused by suggestion giving.
