Curriculum

Course Flow:

The course begins Tuesday, October 10 with the Intro to MI basics in week 1 and is followed up with the weekend retreat Saturday & Sunday,  October 14 – 15. 10:00am – 5:00pm Eastern Time. The course will then progress to 24 weeks of a combination of asynchronous work and live classes on Tuesdays from 6:00-8:30pm Eastern Time. The course ends with another virtual weekend retreat Saturday & Sunday, April 13 -14, 10:00am – 5:00pm Eastern Time.

Course Work:

We estimate a total time commitment of 8-10 hours per week: 2.5 hours of live practice lab time and an additional 5-7 hours spent on self-paced learning modules and practice coaching with peers (as both coach and client). Each week a new module will open with the week’s work.
