Personal Statement about Training Program:
I have developed a new model for teaching focusing--Domain Focusing. It is a little harder to learn than other models but has long-term advantages especially when it comes to applying focusing to a field or to a difficult problem.

I have also developed a 10 month course in Focusing Partnership. The course design is innovative. It has 5 components and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

I teach for about a week in NYC every 2 months. I also do individual and couple focusing sessions. I have 5 principal offerings. 1) 3 person 3 hour applied focusing sessions (for all levels including new); 2) 10 month course in focusing partnership; 3) 10 month applied focusing course as the 2nd of 3 steps in a training program (the Weeklong for Certification is the 3rd step); 4) a 4 day 'Changing the Unchangeable through Focusing' Retreat; 5) Post Trainer programs
