Group guidance involves individual clients working together with a qualified guidance counsellor facilitating the session. Often, in a group context, people share quite a lot about their individual experiences, their career aspirations, together with their challenges and achievements. Therefore, it is very important that the space/environment is conducive to the aims and objectives of the group work.
When delivering group guidance in an outreach centre, it is important to:-
- Identify a suitable room or space;
- Ensure the room is Comfortable with chairs informally laid out in a circle or semi-circle if possible;
- ensure the same criteria as for one-to-one guidance in terms of quietness, confidentiality and privacy;
- It may sometimes be necessary to be flexible and adaptable in Centres where there are space constraints.
