Description:This 10-month long workshop series is a direct response to frequent requests for Maude to provide more integration between theory, different thought leaders, and various modalities in a cost-effective way. Our first round in 2022 was productive and requested by all to continue with this project. Join us for a journey through different areas of development, rich in information with great application to case studies. Attendees can volunteer to present their own cases as part of these workshops. The journey has a two-fold process. Each month we will release a recorded webinar series at no charge to attendees which they can watch in their own time. The second part is that an online meeting will occur each month for 3 hours upon each date to discuss questions live with Maude as well as make case presentations based on these topics and more. Times each month will vary to accommodate our growing global community and the sessions will be recorded and sent to each participant in the program. Each recorded series will be available for 3 months. Maude will ensure these discussions are rich and thought provoking for everyone. This is an opportunity not to be missed! Let us continue the clinical thinking growth and expansion of your clinical expertise in 2023. Maude is also looking forward to learning from everyone else and moderating stimulating discussion.
If you have completed some of the course work with Maude in the past 2 years, Maude will release a commensurate different workshop for individual situations.
