Dedicated VTS Trainer: Em Miller
The VTS Practice & Reflection Group program is an opportunity for those already trained in the VTS method to join a supportive, online community of practice.
In this learner-centered and small group-driven setting, VTS Practitioners will hone facilitation skills through practice and group coaching; explore the use of materials on VTSHome.org (1 month temporary website subscription included), and workshop specific questions with the support of a dedicated VTS Trainer.
Space is limited to 6 participants per cohort. *Course must have a minimum of 3 enrolled in order to run.* A cohort will meet on Zoom for (4) 2-hour sessions. This program is open to practitioners of all skill levels, who have completed the VTS Beginner Practicum or beyond. This is not a VTS Coaching Workshop. We will be utilizing digital platforms such as Zoom and Google. Information for accessing the group materials will be emailed to participants two weeks before the start of the course. This course is scheduled in Pacific time zone. Please check your personal time zone alignment before registering.
SLIDING SCALE REGISTRATION
In Summer 2021, VTS explored the use of a sliding scale as an experiment in equitable pricing. Starting in July 2022, all VTS programs will utilize a sliding scale for registration. We are confident that those who join us are committed to being part of a thoughtful community that is diverse, committed to collective learning, and interested in finding new ways of supporting each other. We have been inspired to use this pricing strategy by Embracing an Equity Sliding Scale.
