We strongly recommend that each participant, no matter the delivery option, have their own workbook. There are blanks to fill in, illustrations to view, and areas for personal reflection.
The In-Person format incorporates several opportunities throughout the seminar for participants to discuss various topics in small groups; the speakers also insert more personal stories and practical applications. The On Demand duration can vary depending upon the use of breakout sessions. The Virtual webinar does not include any discussion times.
Five of the six sessions are divided into parts A and B, which gives 20-25 minutes of teaching, and more time for discussion is desired. This can turn into a full semester class of 11 weeks, or completed in 6 weeks if part A and B are shown the same week. The workbook is an expanded version which includes Discussion Questions for all 11 parts of the seminar.
