“Do unto others as you have others do unto others” (J. Pawl 1995) — Adult Learning and Group Leadership in In-person and Virtual Environments
with Ruby Salazar, LCSW, BCD
Group facilitation and leadership depends on skills important to knowing common principles and leadership mind-sight which engenders a trusting and safe environment, and creates dynamically oriented attention to process, expansion and troubleshooting. Interactive child and adult learning require self reflection, skills in blending motives within learning and objectivity. While there are many commonalities in in-person and Telehealth and tele-education group facilitation and leadership, there are also important differences and adjustments necessary for optimal relating and teaching. We have been thrust into virtual meetings, classes and therapy because of the pandemic. Projections are that this internet modality is here to stay so we must step up to developing our best understanding and skills as teachers, therapists and group leaders.
