To maximize the potential and benefit of this book in your life, it is important to experience the principles and practices of the book. We have developed a 6-meeting Book Practice Facilitation Guide for an experiential book study series to practice and study tools and principles presented in the first three sections of the book, Relationships That Work, Second Edition, by David B. Wolf, PhD. Provided to the Discussion Leader is a detailed guide that suggests readings, guidelines and activities during and between in-person meetings.
The aim of the series is to provide a structured process for reading and experiencing the book in a small group setting with a discussion leader who does not necessarily have any facilitation experience. Participants will experience, first-hand, some of the processes of self-discovery through transformative communication using tools that create empathic and responsible dialogue while being in the service of the personal development of others, while practicing with participants in the group.
This is different than most “book clubs” as it involves personal sharing and experiencing transformation in a group setting where trust gets built over time. Thus, it is important for people to commit to attending all meetings and completing assigned activities, and it is helpful to have an even number of participants to assign partners for between-meeting exchanges.
