For many domestic violence organizations, the pandemic has led to shifting how advocacy supports are delivered. That is, many supports are now being offered virtually to accommodate the pandemic quarantine and in-person restrictions. Support group, a cornerstone of domestic violence advocacy, has historically been one way to cultivate social connectedness for survivors. With the move to virtual platforms, we know that effective facilitation is critical to engagement, peer support, and even healing in a support group space. The same principles can be applied to listening sessions, focus groups and other groups across our organizations. In this follow-up to Transformative Facilitation: Building Virtual Communities, presenters discuss lessons learned in the shift to virtual facilitation and explore ways to navigate challenges that emerge.
