Group calls on Zoom with an optional text forum, optional readings, links and integration excercises in between calls. This course supports parents and education facilitators in deepening their understanding of how and why SDE works, and builds their confidence in supporting young people in self-educating.

The course also gives participants the opportunity to network and make friends and find mentors to build their sense of community and support. Real-life troubleshooting helps participants tackle stuck places and difficult issues.

Je’anna also specialises in SDE for Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA).

Call recordings are privately available for signed-up participants who cannot make it to live calls and for purposes of review. Facilitators who are able to travel to Riverstone Village in South Africa are invited to undertake prac experiences through volunteering as staff at RsV.
