Training Update: December 2020

Final FGC Workshop for 2020

Message from Joanne,


Well.  That’s over!  While we know that 2021 will have it’s challenges (hopefully not the Zombies predicted by Nostradamus) we hope that we can all get busy helping clients to stabilize and rebuild in the coming year. 

 Welcome to all of our new students who joined us before the end of the year and the fee increase in our NMAS Course. We are not reviewing our pricing on our Grad. Dip. course till at least March 2021. 

We are using the “holidays” to work on some exciting new courses to further support our people in developing your interpersonal peace facilitation skills!   

I had hoped to travel to NSW to see my father but the planned trip to Gulargambone isn’t happening as the Victorian state boarder draw bridge is being raised and I wouldn’t be able to get home again.  Perhaps Easter.

I hope you have the opportunity to see those you love over the holidays but if you didn’t remember love doesn’t really depend on proximity.

All the best and see you in a week or two. 


 NMAS Students

December was another busy month despite the holidays. Those that have just started with us don’t worry. The activity levels will go back through the roof again in a week. If we have already issued an invoice we will honor the 2020 pricing but the fee has now increased for new students. The role plays in 2020 were more than double those of 2019.   NMAS Course.

FGC Students 

We will have our next course in the first quarter of 2021 facilitated by our partnered trainer  Eve Clare.   If becoming a Family Group Conference Facilitator is on the agenda for 2021 you can find out more here. FGC Certificate Course.  

FDR Students

Welcome to our newest FDR Students. We have so many students we have increased the tutorials from fortnightly to weekly. We know that the time won’t work for everyone but if you can try to plan your availability to attend as many of the sessions as you can.   The day is Wednesday and the time will depend on where you live. 

Enrolements are open for both our  FDR Property Certificate Course and  FDR course

End of year break end!

We will be back on the 11th January so jump into the scheduler and book in some role plays. 

Remember that participating as a role player is VERY valuable as is observing while using the assessment tool to focus your attention.
