Transforming Through T-Groups: The Facilitator’s Journey

Were you intrigued with your own learning experience in an NTL Human Interaction (HI) Lab? Would you like to be on an HI Lab staff and facilitate a T-Group yourself, impacting – maybe even transforming – the lives of participants? If so, Transforming Through T-Groups (TTTG) will be a necessary and vital step along your pathway.

TTTG is an intensive, challenging, advanced-level train-the-trainer program required of NTL members who want to qualify to staff NTL’s signature HI Labs. It is open to non-NTL members as well.

 

The Program goals are to:

  • ·Develop participant competencies in four key areas:

o   Facilitating T-Groups

o   Managing diversity and inclusion dynamics

o   Designing, presenting and facilitating experiential learning modules, and

o   Preventing distress reactions, and recognizing and responding to such reactions should they   occur.

  •  Provide training in effective T-Group facilitation for all participants

 

Program Outcomes

Successful completion of TTTG will enable participants to:

 
  • Understand the five stages of group development and the group dynamics that are present in each stage 
  • Intervene effectively at individual, interpersonal and group levels of T-Group systems to support individual and group learning
  • Understand the power dynamics involved in interactions across multiple dimensions of social identity group differences
  • Track and describe diversity, inclusion and social justice dynamics in ways that create an inclusive and positive learning environment
  • Design, present and facilitate experiential learning modules
  • Create learning structures that help prevent distress reactions
  • Recognize and respond to distress reactions if these occur

Program Elements

Program elements include: Theory & practice of group development ** T-Group methodology ** Theory & practice of diversity & inclusion ** Multi-level system & power dynamics ** Creating a safe container for learning ** Intervention skill practice ** Complexity of social system dynamics ** Restoring social equity ** Increasing self-awareness

 

A Blended Learning Approach

TTTG will use a blended learning approach that incorporates various synchronous and asynchronous online learning methods, including a series of webinars; an 8-day face-to-face learning experience devoted almost exclusively to T-Group facilitation practice; and follow-up coaching/mentoring support for NTL members during their initial HI Lab staffing experience.
