Curriculum

Course Flow:

Students will come together for an online weekend retreat to start the course Saturday, October 15, and Sunday, October 16, 2022, from 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, April 15, and Sunday, April 16, 2023, from 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.
