Safe Space Workshop Session One IMPORTANT

An introduction to session ONE of the training, more sessions to come. The aim of this FREE online training resource is to share ideas on actions which may help create psychologically safer places in informal and peer-led groups.

The resource can be used many ways; as a learning aid for someone facilitating a group, an established group seeking to see if there is anything which may be helpful for them. A group just setting up and looking for ideas which may help make the group a success.

We have arranged the training in a way which means you can dip in and it. Spending as much time in specific areas as meets the needs of your group.

There may be some areas where you feel, we don't need any more learning in this area, if that's the case, skip over that. There may be other areas where you want to spend more time. It's your choice.

The benefits of online learning are that you can access it when it suits you and the group and can go at a pace which you are comfortable with.

We devised this online resource because although it would be nice to think everyone got on and was kind to each other and disagreements never happened, people are complex and sometimes it's not people mean to be unkind, its simply group dynamics can change and this can be a challenge for those involved unless its managed.

We don't claim to have all the answers, we will also share with you other resources we have found which others have shared online, which you may find helpful. Our aim, to help build a kinder world.

Please feel free to feedback and make comments, we also learn by knowing what works and what needs to change.
