Successful groups have great beginnings, meaningful middles and excellent endings
Each group should have a beginning where you:
1. Introduce yourself.
2. Say how glad you are to be there.
3. Thank everyone for coming.
4. Tell the group members your favorite something (flower, color, food, shape, smell, etc.). Try to relate it to the upcoming group.
5. Then ask group members to introduce themselves and tell their favorite something. Give a choice of two, if necessary, or say: This is Mary, and I think she likes apples. Right Mary?
