Rescheduled: Peter Marks Conscious Care and Support 8 Week Workshop
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the April 27th 8 week course in Conscious Care and Support (CCS) facilitated by Peter Marks due to low enrollment. A new class will be offered starting January 11th 2016 with the hope that the extended lead time will allow for a full roster.
New Course Dates:
January 11, 2106 – February 29th 2016, 5:30-8:30 pm.
Peter is the author of Conscious Care and Support and a faculty member of the University of Toronto. He has over 25 years of experience consulting and providing training to families, Personal Support Persons and Community Living Agencies. He consults with Harvard Medical School programmers and researchers, and practices as an International Mindfulness Facilitator (Canada, US and Mexico).
Over the course of the 8 weeks, you will learn how to optimally meet the support needs of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, and/or mood/mental health disorders through Conscious Care and Support. The course will be highly interactive and include focus on practical tools, becoming mindful and emotionally mature Supporters, and mindful development of unconditional compassion (full details can be found in the brochure here: Extend A Family Brochure).
Registration is open, but there is limited space for 25. Please register online below or contact Michelle Sullivan for additional information or questions.
