After this there will be time for open questions and individual case evaluation and discussion (about 50 minutes) and participants are particularly encouraged to share their experiences, difficulties and concerns during this section.  Each session will have a particular emphasis so that you can choose which session best suits your current needs. There is no restriction on the number of sessions you can attend. Each session costs $30.
