No-shows forfeit their fees entirely and no refunds are available.

Refunds are not available after attending the program.

As these programs are based on a minimum necessary number of attendees, it is possible that the dates may be changed, or the program may be cancelled if the minimum number of registrants is not achieved. If this happens, registrants may choose between a full refund, or choose to credit their registration fees to the rescheduled date.

The Daring Way™ curricula are highly experiential methodologies based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. We will explore the ethics of self-care, as well as the topics of vulnerability, courage, shame, worthiness, and authenticity. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back as we identify and practice self-care and expressive arts techniques that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living in personal and professional life.

We will review published research on self-care as an ethical necessity in the helping professions, as well as identify the signs, symptoms and impact of burnout among helping professionals.
