“The ultimate goal of an experiential facilitator is to guide participants through their own discovery of new experiences.  From these new experiences, participants can learn how to relate new skills, ideas, and behaviors to future life situations.”

Here are thirty-seven different 10- to 20-minute activities, focusing on topics that crucially affect experiences throughout life, including understanding gender issues, rumors and their effects, creativity, communication, and expression of emotions and frustrations.   This practical guide to experience and activity-based counseling is easily implemented for ages 12 to adult, and adaptable for younger audiences as well. Activities include “What Would it Be Like…?” and “Are You More Like…?” questions, Teaching Tales, Minute Mysteries, and assorted games.

The information in this book is presented with a spirit of adventure and fun. Making your group a fun place to be will surely encourage participation.  Adding some adventure (an undertaking involving the unknown) can create curiosity and motivate participation.  It is our job to find out what can light the fire inside.  These Games (& other stuff) for Group have really helped me.  I hope they can help you too.  Enjoy!
