How to conduct psychological training
Carry out the bundling of the group. For the training to come exactly those people who need it, you should conduct a preliminary individual interview with each of the candidates. Participants in psychological training should be focused on self-improvement and self-improvement. Those who join the group, pursuing other goals, will interfere with the progress of the whole team.
Develop common rules for the group. The principle of trust is obligatory, according to which each participant should speak sincerely, without being ashamed of the presence of strangers. It is recommended to establish in the group a single form of contact with each other: exclusively on "you" and using a personal name. The principle of confidentiality obliges the participants of the training to leave the content of communication within the group. The principle of personification of utterances is expressed in the use of personal, rather than impersonal constructions. For example, "I think that ...", instead of "it is believed that ...". This linguistic cunning obliges the participants to express their opinion, and not to repeat the popular clichés.
Focus on introspection. After performing each of the psychological exercises, participants should share their feelings and thoughts. What was easy for them, but what caused the embarrassment. What surprised me in my own behavior and in the reaction of others. It is important that the atmosphere in the group is confidential and the participants are not afraid to speak sincerely.
Model stressful situations. To make really significant changes in the human psyche, it needs to be shaken. Therefore, it is very important to include elements of psychodrames in the training sessions.
Warning the thoughtless actions of the group members. Enthusiasm, optimism and the inflow of internal forces can make people act recklessly. At the end of the classes, warn the group members that a powerful emotional uplift is a short-term reaction and can gain a foothold in the psyche only as a result of a long internal work. The desire to dramatically change their lives (quit work, marry or, conversely, divorce) is quite natural and occurs in many participants in psychological training. However, before making serious decisions, you need to think carefully about them and wait for at least a month after the end of the training.
