Learning outcomes

Since the disruption of COVID-19 we are now offering virtual classroom Families: Difficult, Dangerous, Evasive.

Just like the face to face training, the virtual course is delivered by an experienced Reconstruct trainer in a class room style via a Zoom platform.
In the same way as face to face training allows for group work, open discussion and the sharing of videos and case studies our virtual training offers the same experience.
Participant numbers will be capped at 15 to ensure an effective and interactive learning environment.
