Course Description

Participants will work to improve their skills as IPT trainers.  Our goal is to create and sustain a community of colleagues devoted to supporting each other as learners and instructors.

The course is specifically designed to include BOTH didactic and experiential training.  Participants will have weekly assignments and will be required to present training materials to other participants as part of this training.  We will emphasize skills development for teaching for both small groups and larger audiences.  The course will also provide on-going community following the formal conclusion of the eight weeks of training, with mentoring and peer support both informally and at regular monthly meetings throughout the year.
