Working with the edge - Engaging young people in group work

Young people and group work @ camperdown, Blacktown, Canberra; with Pete Slattery

Bigger, faster, stronger, sometimes grumpier...crash! Fun, exhausting, inspiring and challenging

Young people are super-physical, super-influenced by their emotions, and respond super-impulsively to what’s going on around them. So with all this in mind this workshop will take you through a process that looks at how to harness all this for the good of a group. We will look at the skills, ways of thinking and practical strategies needed to run/facilitate groups with teenagers who at times can be challenging and difficult, always fun and worthwhile. We will look at the pivotal idea of Engagement and how to maintain that engagement over time.

This is what we will cover:
  • Experience 15 + activities
  • Use of music and video, physical movement, scaling activities, super simple theatre activities, drawing, conversation and silence as part of groupwork
  • How to plan a group ‘on the run’ with very little time
  • How to work with young people who may seemingly, be grumpy, scared, angry, bored, don’t want to talk and/or just don’t want to be there
  • How to create strategies for the verbal and the not-so verbal, including drawing, theatre-based action-based, physical movement oh and yesthinking and talking
  • Embedding ‘learning’ within activities
  • Blending process and content
  • Managing the ‘difficult’ stuff
  • Rules without rules
  • Being surprising and unexpected
  • Groups not as rehearsal for change/growth, but as a real experience of change/growth/development.

Facilitator: Peter Slattery
Peter Slattery has worked with individuals, families and communities for over 30 years. He lives in Sydney, but works throughout Australia as well as Asia, Europe and North America. He has written 'Youth works’ and produced the training DVD 'Conversations with young people', and most recently the group work resource ‘THOUGHTPICS’. He strives constantly to find or develop new, exciting and ever more useful ways of helping people explore what troubles or inspires them. In this quest, he calls on anything that might be helpful; physical movement, theatre, storytelling, drawing, what might be called ‘humour’ and really, anything at all that might add something to this process. Peter says "what a totally challenging joy all of this is"!
