How our Courses Work:


Each course is ‘open’ for roughly a four-week period. During that time, participants will have access to on-demand content for self-directed learning. Learners are required to complete the self-directed modules (including quizzes) before each mandatory-attendance Tutorial Session.

 Live online Tutorials are scheduled at regular intervals during the course. Attendance is mandatory (see Training Schedule for dates and times of each). Led by experienced coaches, the Tutorials feature interactive role plays, small group discussion, case study and one-on-one feedback. Participants MUST attend all scheduled tutorials in order to receive their Certificate of Completion.



Each module of each course includes quizzes. Students must achieve at least a passing grade on all quizzes to advance to the next module or course, and to receive their Certificate of Completion for that course.


NOTE: This course is made available to those who pay and register for it only. Only those students who pay and register may attend this course. It is a violation of the contract for training to permit another person to listen or to share course materials with a person who is not registered in the course.

I enjoyed working with the actors. Much more realistic and valuable than I expected.

Doing the roll play was good practice. I liked mediating with the actors!

Case studies provided (were) relevant and interesting. Subject matter appropriate. The actors are an amazing component to the course. We learnt so much from them.

Pre-group discussion and coaches helped facilitate learning opportunities.

The role plays and coaching were invaluable. The feedback and direction from coaches (and even actors) was very constructive.

I enjoyed the role plays and concrete feedback from coaches an actor as we went along. Great to have immediate suggestions / conversations.

The structure of the course was well thought out. Everything else was fantastic. Thank you!

I really enjoyed the freedom to conduct the meditation without the assistance of the coaches. It was both a scary experience and a valuable one for me.

Clear and positive interaction with the speakers.

It was great having dedicated observer for role plays.

Very much enjoyed Jared’s presentation; found the topic very interesting from a mental health/social worker perspective. Role plays and fish bowl exercises very useful.

The quality of the materials and exercises was matched by the experience and enthusiasm of the instructors and coaches.

This has been the best experience that I have had as an adult learner… What made it so was the theory taken into practice with coaches and professional actors. Fantastic!

Extraordinary course – thought-provoking, thorough, highly organized!
