This session includes the opportunity to discuss relationships among agencies and programs in the communities of the participants. Facilitators might suggest establishing a ground rule that avoids placing blame on specific agencies. The process of developing ground rules is important because it creates a safe environment in which to discuss these issues in a nonjudgmental way.
Planning for this session requires presenters to know their audience and whether participants will attend as a large community group, as a team, or as individuals. If people come in teams, have them work with their team. If people come as a group from one program, divide them into groups to work together. If participants come as individuals, have them work in pairs or small groups.
