How to deal with crisis, conflict and trauma during a training?
What can we do as facilitators when, at the moment of conducting a workshop, the group enters crisis, conflict or trauma?
The answer to this question was developed together with Aga Leśny, expert in outdoor and experiential education, basing something on theory and a lot on practice. We organized a 5 days seminar on this topic and obtained EU funds to carry it out. This generous support allowed us to invite and listen to the diverse experience of 25 trainers from 5 different countries in Europe (Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland and Romania). One of the relevant results was a kind of behavioral "algorithm" to face such a situation, with concrete steps and activities for the trainer and the group.
