SILVA, Gabriela Martins; GUANAES-LORENZI, Carla  e  NESS, Ottar. Handling the unexpected in group facilitation: a case study of an as if exercise. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2018, vol.19, n.1, pp. 6-20. ISSN 1677-2970.

Based on the idea of group as a social construction there are several dialogical and collaborative resources for working with groups. However, theoretical propositions for group facilitation are not always accompanied by empirical examples that demonstrate the complexity of this process. Therefore, this article contributes to the literature about preparation of the facilitator for dialogic group practices, from a case study of a group process that did not unfold as expected, in the application of the as if exercise. We seek to highlight unexpected situations of difficult management in the facilitation, allowing us to reflect on the preparation of the contexts as a central point to permit that practices that are proposed to be dialogical can work as such.

Palavras-chave : dialogic interactions; group discussion; group dynamics; social constructionism.
