About this Event

Come on out and get a chance to experience the engaging power of the Behavioural Model of Facilitation.

In this 2 hour workshop you will be able to:

Name and describe the 5 Pillars of the Behavioural Model of Facilitation

Experience “learn by doing” through a few methods of creating groups and performing activities

Develop a short presentation in groups to demonstrate each of the 5 Pillars

The Behavioural Model of Facilitation was first developed by a Psychologist in Carbondale, Illinois named Dr. Nathan Azrin. This model also pulls and utilizes key concepts from Adult Learning Principles. Since its inception it has been used to effectively run employment workshops enabling individuals to move from unemployment to employment in the shortest amount of time.

While not insensitive to an individual’s feelings, the Behavioural Model of Facilitation focuses on action-oriented process in an intensive and structured learning situation where the factors known to facilitate learning are maximized. The Winnipeg Transition Centre and Ron Bartlette have used, tweaked and then taught the Behavioural Model of Facilitation since 1989 and have found it to be highly effective.

Behaviourism focuses on the actions required for change. When applied to facilitating, the facilitator assists the participant in obtaining specific skills and knowledge. This approach is both outcome-oriented and process-oriented.

This type of facilitating:

Identifies factors that must be learned for the desired outcome,

Arranges them in a step-by-step, consistent manner,

Presents skill development in a learn-by-doing process.

Martin Kaethler has been facilitating professional development workshops with Active Learning Works! The professional development division of the Winnipeg Transition Centre. He has taken on the honour and privilege facilitating the Practical Workshop Facilitation Skills Certificate (5 Day Workshop) locally within Winnipeg. His passion for creating safe and engaging learning opportunities is a useful compliment to the Behavioural Model of Facilitation.
