Tree says: A few of us are in the process of developing various workshops around the cards, individually and in collaboration. So far there are two basic workshop types that i know of, and i suspect a few more are out there. The first is a basic introduction to the cards. The second is designed to answer the initial question many of us associated with the project typically receive, which is: "How do you use the deck?" In my mind there are 4 basic categories of usage:
- learning and self-assessment (for individuals and groups)
- guidance mid-stream (or just before an event)
- reflection and debriefing (which in some ways is a subset of #1, but seems worthy of its own standing)
Sue & i have developed a workshop covering these that i am hoping we are able to deliver at the NCDD conference and elsewhere. The Oregon Mediation Association has accepted my proposal to present a concurrent session at their fall conference. The coordinator of the Alt Blues Recess coming up in a few weeks wants creative workshops there even though it's mainly a dance event. And the workshops coordinator at the Beloved Festival just asked me about presenting a workshop on Group Works. I'm excited that we are getting the word out in a variety of venues.
