  • Introduction to the College Tool (Without Computers)
    When we don’t have the luxury of a full set of computers for participants to explore the college tool we can still introduce it. Ideally we will use a LCD projector and one computer to show the interactive version of the kit. But if this is not available the full PDF can be printed out and a print based version of the tool can be introduced instead. This workshop plan gives some ideas for how to get participants to begin to think about the issue and this tool.
  • Janus Gate
    Here is an innovative approach to dealing with life transitions. Created by psychodrama therapist Liz White, this exercise is a holistic way to foster a healthy sense of closure at the end of a course or program, when a staff person or volunteer is leaving, a tutor learner pair need closure, or at any other time to help people remember their strengths in a time of loss or change.
