Please expect the sessions to include a variety of tasks such as regular roleplay, triad work for skills development and which will be tutor observed as part of the assessment process. There may potentially be an emotional impact from some of the subjects discussed and for this reason we do not recommend friends or family members attending the course at the same time. Please also expect to have to complete a learning journal evaluating your experiences during the class/reflection during the week and for which you should allow approx. 3 hours time spent on this homework each week.
