Workshop Description

This workshop will explore how to utilize the intentional omission of certain pieces of information or instructions when guiding an experiential activity. This can be an effective facilitation tool to witness and explore therapeutic dynamics in health care settings. We will engage in a variety of experiential activities to investigate this further, along with re-designing one in real time.

  • Acquire knowledge of Johari’s Window self awareness feedback loop, and its applications within experiential learning.
