Learn to Facilitate Men’s Groups
1-Day Training Workshop
Men’s groups are increasingly popular because they provide a sense of camaraderie, support, personal growth, and fun.
What’s a Men’s Group?
Men’s groups are safe places where you can:
- Share and learn from other men’s experiences and perspectives.
- Explore what’s going on beneath the surface.
- Experiment with letting go of who you no longer need to be, and who you want to become. For example, practice being: more or less assertive, more honest about how you feel, not having to be a people-pleaser, etc.
Why Men Only?
When women are present I’ve found that the dynamics change: men are less open, less willing to take risks, may ‘perform’ to impress, or hold back for fear of being judged.
Want to Help Men?
Empower men to find greater life satisfaction.
We’re experiencing a historical change in society’s attitude towards men’s mental health issues. It’s no longer a taboo subject, and there’s a growing awareness that getting men to open up and talk about their issues is a necessary part of the solution.
Men’s groups are at the leading edge of this important change. They’re rare oases, where ‘early adopters’ can safely experiment with being more open and authentic.
They’re incubators, protecting and nurturing a wave of change that will eventually transform society.
This is your chance to be at the leading edge of this change. Become a men’s group facilitator and help bring the change to your community. Not only will the men who attend your men’s groups benefit, their family, friends and the wider society will also benefit.
You Can Be a Men’s Group Facilitator
Anyone can be a men’s group facilitator, because the role of the facilitator isn’t to be a therapist, coach or counselor or to give wise advice. The role is to get people talking and sharing different perspectives and opinions in a non-judgmental way.
You don’t even have to be male! And you could use these skills to run mixed groups or women’s groups.
If you want to facilitate groups (professionally or for free in your own community), conscious conversations, self-aware transparent non-hierarchical gatherings, personal and community development spaces—then this is the workshop for you!
The workshop will be led by Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz, a men’s life coach and personal development consultant with over two decades worth of experience in facilitating groups.
What You’ll Learn
During this full day introductory workshop you’ll experience a MenSpeak men’s group and learn how to facilitate your own, in your own way. You’ll learn :
- how to draw forth deeper discussion and respectfully respond from your centre, without judgment or influence.
- group dynamics
- body language
- masculine psychology
- the nitty gritty details such as time-keeping, setting up the room, holding the space and professional boundaries.
The skills you’ll learn have a far broader reach than just men’s groups. You can apply them anywhere and everywhere:
- your home
- your workplace
- any community, educational, or professional group and meeting
This is a stand-alone core training, for which you will receive a (beautiful) certificate of attendance.
“Juicy, authentic, rich with the meaningful kind of learning that really adds immense value to this work. Even though I’ve got 4 years experience running men’s groups, Kenny brings so much to the table I left with that wonderful state of beginner’s mind. The day was a powerful reframe of what our responsibility is as a facilitator, and only someone who’s done the hard work themselves, and forged their own unique method can offer a day’s training like this.
Thank you Kenny, as always it was a privilege!”
“Great meetup, really enjoyed it, I would recommend it to anyone, excellent stuff Kenny!”
