The Satir Intensive Training is a unique opportunity to learn about the Satir Growth Model from a theoretical perspective as well as through hands-on, experiential activities in an intimate setting with internationally-recognized Satir experts and trainers.
The Satir Model teaches us that self-reflection and gaining clarity about our own thought processes are crucial elements in improving our communication skills and increasing positive outcomes in any situation that involves human systems or interactions – so training involves a good deal of personal work and individualized attention and feedback from the facilitators as well as practical tools for applying the model effectively in a professional capacity.
Course fee includes tuition, materials, lunch as well as snacks and beverages throughout the five day training. An option to stay at the venue is also available. The stay includes breakfast and dinners.
