Someone who watches rather than participates. In our program, we strongly discourage “observers” but that doesn’t mean we don’t want you to visit us! We definitely want that, but you’ll need to participate, too! The reason is, in the community-based setting, people may become uncomfortable with observers sitting in the back. With our techniques designed to facilitate connection, the time goes by faster, it’s less uncomfortable, people stay engaged and we get to see each other.
