Three Steps

1. Initial meeting:

To agree to the process and (facilitator and support people) roles

To understandthe purpose of the intervention

2. Individual confidential meetings:

To have facilitator get to know the participants and visa versa

To identify what is important to each person

3. Joint meetings:

For the participants to work together to achieve their purpose

Note:

The initial meeting is usually very short about 10 mins or so.

Individual confidential meetings are between one and two hours each; sometimes it is useful to have more than one with each person.

The joint meetings are about between two and three hours each; sometimes it is useful to have more than one.
