This is a new service I’m able to provide to help others who would also like to become a GAB Instructor.
People who become GAB Instructors come from a variety of backgrounds–some are writers or researchers; some are teachers; some have worked in helping professions. Many have come out of the field of psychology. Some have been a participant in a regular GAB workshop series and know they’d love to do this too.
Those who become GAB Instructors are people who are genuinely curious about others and interested in the stories they share. They are not afraid to talk about sensitive issues and, while not therapists, GAB Instructors are empathetic and nonjudgmental.
If you want to find out more about the classes I’ll be offering, please write to me. Classes run for 8 weeks, 3 hours/week. The fee is $450 USD (or CAD equivalent).
Due to demand, I will be offering two classes this coming fall:
Mondays, September 16 to November 4, 1:30pm to 4:30pm (PDT)
Tuesdays, September 17 to November 5, 9:30am to 12:30pm (PDT)
