Education results in preventive insight, personal challenge, and skill development for individuals and for groups. Educational activities (workshops, seminars, lectures) which elucidate such topics as the dynamics of healthy and unhealthy relationships, abuse, and violence are available. Educational content will focus on psychological, sociological and interdisciplinary principles.

All training sessions are customized to clients' specific needs. This occurs in dialogue with principals involved in establishing the training program. What follows is a sample of a training proposal which is an illustration of the breadth of GroupWorks training competencies.
