Agenda for the Certification Training Program

The 4-day Training Program begins each morning at 8:30 am and concludes at 5:00 pm. The Program is divided into two phases:

Phase 1 – Participants learn the principles and techniques of Edu-Therapy™ by applying the process to their own life events.

Phase 2 – This phase covers the techniques of applying Edu-Therapy™ Communications with others in both social and professional environments contained within the Edu-Therapy™ Leader Guide. The two Leader Workbooks cover techniques and modules for working with clients in group and individual sessions.

The program is very interactive and allows time for discussion on modules and specific circumstances as they relate to the participant’s workplace environment and cultural “memes” (norms). The program includes the application of Grief Resolution to specific populations and grieving experiences, such as residential school, various types of abuse, and trauma. Also included is the extensive Edu-Therapy™ support system which provides access to pre-packaged marketing materials and optional client referral services.
