Group Activities for Personal Development
by Sheena Duboust, OT and Pamela Knight, OT
One of the hardest things about running a group is coming up with stimulating games and exercises on a particular theme. This highly practical book comes to the group leader's rescue by offering tried and tested activities related to specific themes: Exploring Relationships, Learning to Trust, Developing Self-Understanding, Nonverbal Communication, Expressing Feelings, Assertiveness Training, and Decision Making.
Each activity is comprised of warm-ups, main theme, and closure, including detailed notes that reduce preparation time for the group leader. Designed for teens and adults, these activities can be used in hospital settings, youth groups, women's groups, stress management programs, or in any group where participants want to gain self-understanding and confidence.
