Now that we have the TCOYL workshop organized and operating in many countries, I think we can say that the members of our organization are looking for shorter workshop formats for teaching CT. I like the idea that we retain our basic training structure as an introduction and add new, short workshops that will increase the interest and the skill development of people in various fields of work. Like what Bette suggested on education, with multiple workshop topics and skills. We could design these for all areas of interest: corrections, spirituality, business, health services, social services, parenting, personal wellness. Many of our faculty are teaching these now. I think we need to adopt a promotion of “train the trainers”. Members who have created workshops with specific skills targeted, could be encouraged to become “experts” in their workshop format and train others who would like to teach these skills using the experts’ workshop format. We have the beginning of this process established by a few of our members. I believe the program committee would be elated to have more “experts” step forward.
