Group talking

WEVAS® uses a “process teaching” format that allows people to identify effective skills that they have developed already and to become aware of the impact of some of their less effective strategies.  Throughout the training participants have the opportunity to share their effective skills with others, to develop new skills, and to practice these.  They also have the opportunity to develop the tools needed to continue assessing and developing new skills as they interact with children/youth/adults.
