At the Network we believe that the lived experience of our members can make a valuable contribution to our workshops. The purpose of this training is to provide eligible members the skills and opportunity to use their expertise of lived experience as Co-facilitators in the Network’s training programs.

Module 3 – Group Facilitation Skills 2 (Facilitation and Co-facilitation Skills)
