If you’ve never run a group meeting before, it can be a bit daunting. Don’t worry, you might be a bit nervous at first, but with practice, you’ll get used to it and it will come naturally.

It’s always a good idea to start groups with a ‘Go-Around’ of introductions if  everyone in the group does not know each other. Also, we recommend that when you start the session, you all agree that the group depends on the active participation and support of everyone. Ask for the help of the group.


These are short, fun activities that can help overcome nerves and build trust within a group.
