How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

Casey was welcoming, warm, and very personable. Great presence with the group. Casey acknowledged all the comments from participants in a manner that made them feel heard and important as part of the group.

How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.

The slides were used in a very appropriate manner to help facilitate conversation and keep the session moving the way it was intended. The slides were used to enhance dialogue and conversation and help participants understand the concepts by putting words and pictures together for greater understanding.

How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

Good explanation of the activities even though we did not do them.

How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

Great job explaining the mindful dialogue and how they would be done as well as the guidelines for doing them. That review is important.

What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.

The recognition of the participants when they provided thoughts, comments, stories, experiences, or feedback was excellent. Individual recognition is important to help all participants feel like they are contributing members of the group. You were also able to connect participant comments to each other, what a wonderful skill. Your personal examples (panda, glitter globe) were well done and appropriate.

How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.


What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.

As you become more familiar with the content of the material your notes will be less important. Having them handy is important though because they are a great reference to ensure you didn't miss anything you wanted to share.
Monitoring time is a skill that will come with time and practice. Every group is different and will take some practice to figure out what information can be shortened or how a session can be modified depending on the "talkative" nature of the participants.

Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?Yes
