About this course

The group facilitator’s ability to create a safe and supportive environment for offenders in group sessions, manage group dynamics, foster peer support, and promote professional growth is crucial to the group’s success. Effective facilitation enhances the overall therapeutic experience and supports positive outcomes for group participants as part of rehabilitation efforts for offenders.
