The online Sibshop Facilitator Certification Training/Sibling Educational Workshop is offered in various formats: in one full day, or spread out over days or weeks. Please check our calendar of events for current training offerings.
Every training is one event with three parts, two goals, and two audiences:
To train new Sibshop facilitators and administrators who want to learn how to run a Sibshop. Trainees attend four online sessions, typically over one week, 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 3 parts 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.
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 the first 2 parts of the training.
