We have talked about modelling throughout this module as an effective and gentle way to guide and improve participation, whether that be ways of communicating or acting, word choices, or strategies to support participants. Modelling is demonstrating through your own actions, words and methods, the preferred actions, words and methods that you want your participants and care partners to follow.
This strategy should be considered in everything you do. Seeing a facilitator in action is a great cue for others to follow, learn and help. In our programs we aim to lead by example, and offer additional subtle interventions where needed to continue positive engagement.
