The training has clarified skills and strategies I have used previously as well as informing me of new ways of engaging with young people to help them find better ways of dealing with situations they face. The principals of Groupwork facilitation outlined were particularly helpful, e.g. “challenge the offence without losing the offender”. This approach will be a great help in my work. I expect the skills I have learnt will help me in managing difficult Groupwork in schools more effectively and for the benefit of the young people.
