Show Summary Details


This chapter provides practical information on how to be an effective group leader, and serves as additional training for those who wish to lead the Taking Charge groups. This training complements the practice manual that was presented in Chapter 3. It may be of particular help to those who are new to leading groups, but more advanced group leaders will also find this chapter invaluable because it explains specific roles and functions of the Taking Charge group leader. Issues covered include the advantages of co-leadership, managing group process, how to set up and manage the point system and incentives, how to do lunch, how to keep and manage records, effective training and teaching tips, and how to maintain intervention fidelity.
