Study Group Network
Presenter(s): Mr Moshe Lang MAPS

This is an experiential participatory workshop providing the participants with an opportunity to use humour and play in exploring techniques for getting out of stuck situations

Participants are encouraged to come to the workshop with a situations or relationships where they caught in repetitive interactive cycles that they have difficulty of getting out of.

The workshop would provide them the opportunity where they can experience and explore the different ways of interacting. 

Participants are encouraged to come to the workshop and be prepared to share with others their difficulties in their work or in other relationships and they will be provided with an opportunity to experiment in alternative ways of relating and interacting.

A finer appreciation of the human paradox is likely to result.  Participants attending such workshops in the past have discovered that they have become more daring and flexible in their work and have developed a lighter touch.
