Event description

Description

The Empathic Facilitator is a two-day training for anyone who leads groups and wants to develop the skills to lead a profound change process. The principles and practices learned in this training can be adapted for a range of settings and groups whether you regularly facilitate workshops, team meetings, or offer one-on-one coaching.

Practitioners in the fields of social work, criminal justice reform, and reentry services understand the importance of empathizing with the people they serve. In fact, the restorative justice process is predicated on a foundation of empathy. When in service of communities impacted by mass incarceration, we never stop cultivating the set of skills necessary for an effective embodiment of empathy.

In this training you will:

  • Cultivate a set of daily practices for deepening self-awareness, presence, and the ability to be attuned to the needs of your group.

  • Use storytelling as a way to build empathy and connection within groups.

  • Work with group tensions/conflicts in a generative way that produces fresh insights and stronger relationships.

  • Give and receive constructive and attuned feedback that leads to sustainable change and cultivates empowered leaders.

  • Learn to build a culture of shared ownership of outcomes and direction.

Participants will receive a toolkit of the activities learned in the training and a certificate of completion.

Sponsored by the Center for Justice at Columbia University and Create Forward.

Scholarships: There is a limited number of scholarships available for people directly impacted by incarceration and criminalization. Please complete the survey to see if you qualify.
