Support groups of various kinds are an essential part of a solid counseling toolbox. Building on the DOL YouthBuild Manual for Counseling, Case Management and Program Culture, this webinar will focus on the use of one type of support group used in YouthBuild called an “equal-time support group”.


The process is accessible, easy to implement, creates group cohesion, helps personal development, provides a safe place for sharing, and teaches deep listening skills. Learn the fundamentals of designing an equal-time support group and the keys to successful facilitation.
