Listening Skills

The "Listening Skills" course details how to form and manage a small group where the focus of the work is the development of listening skills.  The central assumption is that just as with every other skill people seek to acquire, some people are great and others find it very difficult, with most people falling somewhere in between.  The approach taken is very much along the lines of we all find some things difficult and need extra help to learn how to do it.  It's no big deal.  The games are fun, yet increasingly demanding.  The intention of the pack is to offer an approach with a number of pre-planned sessions to get things started.  The facilitator is encouraged to investigate the actual problems the child/children are experiencing in the context they live and study in.  Games will then be generated to address specific difficulties by the group facilitator.
