Dynamic Group Retention How to keep Psychoeducational Support Group Members Coming Back


Date of Publication
April, 2013

This webinar will be focused on techniques and suggestions for building in community and participant retention. Psycho-educational support groups create a community in which members offer and receive support, validation, connection, healing and hope. Community requires commitment and connection, but maintaining group attendance after the first couple of weeks can be a challenge.

How frustrating is it to start out with a group of 10 committed group members and watch the number dwindle weekly with no explanation? It is a great follow up to the Circle of Hope, for those who have attended that training, but will be useful to anyone interested in support group facilitation. Workshop participants will take away fun, inventive samples to be utilized in group and gain tools for creating solid, well-attended support groups.
