My usual instructions: Just relax, have FUN with it; listen, and respond accordingly.
They were the most incredible group! Achieved a "perfect 10" score, and I do not ever recall that happening. What made that possible was the way that the group so interacted with each other--truly mutual aid--that it was rarely possible to tell who was the actual facilitator for the section and I had forgotten my list. They emerged from the "I" to the "It" (the 'group' rather than just individuals) so quickly that it was difficult to say who was actually leading that particular stage of the group! Now that is group!
Once again, I was impressed with their skills, but more so, with their critical thinking and the depth of their thinking about the topic. They had some excellent points, examples, and awarenesses. At one point, someone said, "We already have a multicultural society; the issue is accepting that." Perhaps that should be the topic of the next group--"Promoting acceptance of a multicultural society in Mississippi."
At any rate, I am more confident in the possibility of that after yesterday's group.
