Session One: Introduction To Personal Responsibility

Learning Goal and Outcome

Goal – For learners to understand what the purpose of this group is.

Outcome – Learners will demonstrate an understanding of what the expected outcomes of this curriculum are.

Introduction To Personal Responsibility

What is this group about?

Many individuals struggle with the concept of personal responsibility and taking responsibility for their actions. This concept is hard for some to grasp and there are many questions to be answered. What is personal responsibility? How can I achieve this? Why do I want this in my life? This workbook has been created with the purpose of providing the learner with a greater understanding of what personal responsibility is, how to start using this concept in your life and why it would be beneficial to do so.

This workbook will expose you to the concept of personal responsibility and challenge your old thoughts and behaviours while trying to provide you with valuable information. This workbook will educate you on the concept of personal responsibility.

What will you be able to accomplish by the end of this workbook?

You will have a firm grasp of what personal responsibility is, how and when to use it and why this concept is so important in your life. You will be able to take responsibility for your actions and grow from the experiences you have had instead of staying in the same stagnant place. If you do not take responsibility for what you have done, how can you possibly learn from the situation to change and grow?

You will also have the opportunity to understand many concepts related to personal responsibility such as the drama triangle, releasing blame, how to avoid becoming the victim, when to not accept personal responsibility, and how to accept personal responsibility in difficult situations.

*Ice Breaker Exercises

If you are working in a group spend some time on the icebreakers below to get to know the others within the group. If you are working on this workbook on your own, skip this section.

Introduce Myself

Members introduce themselves and why they came to the group. There are variations to the exercise. For example, members can explain where they heard about the group, why they’re interested in this subject or some of their favourite things.

*It is important to relate this back to the concept of personal responsibility. For example, you can share that the members are taking the first step in personal responsibility in sharing why they came to group today. Or that they are starting to become personally responsible since they know there is an issue and are reaching out for help (Icebreakers and name games).

AND/OR

Play the interview game. Divide everyone into pairs. Ask them to take three minutes to interview each other. Each interviewer has to find 3 interesting facts about their partner. Bring everyone back to together and ask everyone to present the 3 facts about their partner to the rest of the group. Watch the time on this one, keep it moving along (Knox).

*Yet again relate this activity back to personal responsibility. For example, these individuals did or did not choose to have personal responsibility by keeping themselves on task or by speaking to their partner.

AND/OR

A game of your choice.

What is personal responsibility?

This is where we want to hear from you and your thoughts around the subject of personal responsibility.

* Hand out survey below (copies should be made before group)

*Ask for volunteers to read their answers out loud and discuss with group. You may want to jot some answers down on the white board and point out common themes within the group. (collect this survey at the end in order to compare with survey handed out during last session to see if this group was successful)

Or if you are working through this workbook on your own, take some time to gain some insight into your self, by reflecting on the survey questions.
