Category Archives: Group Ideas

The things in this category are for the sweet angels out there who somehow have the patience and composure to work with groups of people. Maybe it’s in therapy, education, coaching, cult recruiting, human resources, inpatient hospitals or residential treatment, churches or other religious groups, militia meetings, community organizations, unions, rehab, etc… but at some point it will feel like you’re trying to herd a bunch of cats, we understand.
We all know it’s not easy but it can be incredibly effective and rewarding. You are amazing and appreciated.
So these resources are everything group-related: games, activities, interventions, ideas, theory information, personal experiences, and groupie.
