You will apply the methods and tools you learn in our program in your own life and in your work with children, teens, or adults— immediately, as part of the program itself. But even more importantly, the value of your experience will extend and grow after the program; we offer more than an enjoyable experience, and we don’t leave you confused or uncertain about what to do after you leave the program site. You will be able to take many new tools and strategies away with you, apply them with confidence, and work with greater confidence and success. We also offer you a variety of ways to obtain continuing support and new learning; we don’t just “present events,” we build relationships!
