This training will take place daily September 15-18, 2020, from 9:00-10:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time. Sessions 1-3 will be 90 minutes. Session 4 will be 2 hours in duration (9:00-11:00 a.m.). 

Primary goal/audience: To train new Sibshop facilitators and administrators who want to learn how to run a Sibshop.  Trainees attend 4 online sessions over 4 consecutive days, to learn about sibs’ life-long concerns, find out how to organize a Sibshop, and experience an online Demonstration Sibshop. These trainees must attend all 4 sessions of the training to become a Certified Sibshop Facilitator.  Upon completion of the training, Certified Sibshop Facilitators may register and start their own local Sibshop.

Secondary goal/audience: To educate parents, service providers, and others about sibs’ ever-changing issues across the lifespan.  Participants are interested in sibling issues, but not necessarily in running a Sibshop.  This audience attends only session #1-#3 of the online training.

Even if you don't want to  become a Sibshop facilitator, you can join us for the first day for a lively and rewarding discussion of sibs' issues across the lifespan.
