Delivered virtually via Zoom, each 1.5 hour training session is designed to maximize the amount of time you spend practicing as well as receiving feedback from your peers and the Lead Facilitator.
These in-class sessions are also supported by eight modules of online learning content that include 4-5 quick lessons made up of video lectures, articles and exercises that can be accessed on-demand for an entire year. Download the full program here.
