The focus of the Primary Training is on iD theory and best practices for facilitating.

Coursework includes:

  • Assigned reading and student discussions between class sessions
  • Group in-class discussions of assigned reading so students are exposed to multiple perspectives
  • Personal iD sessions for each student (one iD Session per class meeting). One’s own iD work is the foundation for facilitating others. As we continue to integrate all aspects of our authentic selves, we build the skills, capacity and navigational heft to facilitate others.
  • Observation of and participation in iD Workshops open to the public
  • Supervised, student-facilitated iD Sessions (introduced in latter courses)

Weekly class sessions are roughly three and half hours long and focus on deepening individual understanding of self as well as the theoretical aspect of the material. Each class session is followed by attendance at an iD workshop, where students have additional opportunities to observe and participate in iD sessions, committing to at least 7 workshops per 10 week course.
