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

Reiterated the principles of the safe space from session I. This was a great reminder.

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

Using the power point slides as a guide to the content is important as it helps to keep the facilitator on target. The slides also help participants better understand the concepts and material as they can put words together with pictures in many cases for a better grasp of the material. Don't be afraid to use the slides as a reference point to keep you focused and on point.
