purpose
Purpose

To facilitate means "to make easy." The group facilitator's job is to make it easier for the group to do its work. By providing non-directive leadership, the facilitator helps the group arrive at the understandings and decisions that are its task. In a consensus group the facilitator's focus is on the group and its work. The role is one of assistance and guidance, not of control.

Michel Avery, Brian Auvine, Barbara Streibel, Lonnie WeissBuilding United Judgment: A Handbook for Consensus Decision Making The Center for Conflict Resolution, 1981, page 51.

Indigenous peoples, the peace movement including the Quakers, feminism, individual and group psychotherapy, community and organizational development, and alternative conflict resolution and participative education and research methods have all had an impact on the development of facilitation and facilitator education.
