This workshop provides participants with mindsets, ideas, skills and tools to improve their effectiveness in advocating on behalf of their family members. It also connects participants to a series of  subsequent webinar training opportunities and mentoring / coaching designed to assistant participants hone their advocacy skills.

  • The Art of Strategy
  • Understanding the Political and Public Policy Environment

At present, this session is available only in full-day live-in-person workshop format.
