This book shows educators and group facilitators how to foster personal development and self-awareness in learners in a way that is integrated with subject matter curriculum. It is an important resource for teachers, group facilitators, trainers, and organizational consultants. It contains dozens of group exercises designed to foster emotional intelligence and group development for people of all ages.
Each exercise is offered as an answer to one of the typical problems or developmental tasks that learners encounter— topics such as self-confidence, self-awareness, group trust, group self-reflection, organizational change, feedback, and conflict resolution. Exercises and suggested designs are scaled to be useful at different stages in a group’s life.
Carl Rogers praised it as “an essential resource full of pioneering tools and concepts.” And George Issac Brown called it “one of the best education books of the decade.”
