Substantive Content

20 Hours

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!
