The facilitator uses a variety of training methods for each workshop, including large group discussions, individual work and reflection, small group discussions and exercises, case studies and simulations for role-play.
This interactive workshop is delivered with a 40/60 split between concept/theory and a practical application of the skills discussed.
Class size should be kept under 20, whenever possible, so each participant will have the opportunity to gain techniques for the types of situations they deal with or expect to deal with.
