The Body Part Debrief Thumball™ was designed to help facilitators, trainers and teachers ask participants thoughtful questions about their experiences. The body-focused metaphors are easy for participants to relate to. This process can help shift some of the responsibility for successful processing from the facilitator to the participants. The questions can be answered in a group setting or used with individuals.
Feel free at any time to reword or alter the question provided. Each question is simply a starting point; take it in any direction you desire.
Be creative and avoid one-word answers.
Expand on your answer as often as you can. Allow one question to lead into full conversations.
Some of the metaphorically inspired debrief prompts include:
- Describe something you saw in yourself?
- Give someone a hand!
- What took guts?
- Did you stick your foot in your mouth?
