Where & When
Program: There are 10 group meetings of 2,5 hours in the online training. The training may include 2 hours of individual consultation with (one of) the teacher(s).
In the group meetings, the students bring in their ideas and plans about how they are structuring the basic course and courses 2 through 4, and discuss them with each other, and try out talks about focusing topics and group exercises. The teachers do not tell them how to do this, but participate in the discussions. Once the classes have started, they can bring in problems and successes to discuss with the group.
Each group meeting one or two articles about special aspects of Focusing are discussed.
Some of the other topics covered are: role play, group dynamics, projecting brochures and advertising. Students are encouraged to bring in brochure samples for the group. Group sessions include Focusing on how they each feel about their progress in the training.
Students are also encouraged to follow workshops with other trainers, to visit the International Conference or Summer school etc.
After the group sessions, the teachers and the student decide whether the student is ready, and if not, what more training is needed.
This training is open to people who have completed the practioner training.
