Participants learn all of the concepts and techniques taught in our weekend course plus development of additional skill areas. It provides proven behavioral change concepts and techniques that are easily learned and can be immediately applied to one’s life situations. Weekly meetings are held in a nonjudgmental, uplifting group setting which respects diversity and where participants can feel inspired and supported by their instructor and classmates. Using thought-provoking class exercises and homework practice assignments, participants become aware of where their skills are lacking and are motivated to take responsibility to make necessary changes for enhancing their interpersonal effectiveness in their home and workplace lives. Our 10-session format offers participants the benefit of practicing their new skills during the week and then coming back to share successes, challenges and receive feedback. As the class progresses, each student creates a individual practice plan that encourages continual integration and use of the skills once the program is completed.
(For court-required or DCF individuals, attending this course for all 10 sessions fulfills the State-mandated number of sessions set by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.)
