Just starting the FOCCUS ministry? All individuals and couples interested in becoming facilitators need to complete a 6-hr training provided by a FOCCUS-certified trainer. Certified training sessions for new facilitators are provided by the Diocese of Madison, typically in February.
Facilitator Training is a 6-hour one-day or two-evening training designed to equipment you with all you need to get started. Topics include What is FOCCUS and What does it Measure? Understanding the Engaged Couple, How to Administer, Score and Facilitate the Inventory with the New Online Scoring Method and more. Sessions occuring in 2014 and beyond cover the 4th Edition FOCCUS Inventory and include the 4th Edition Facilitator Manual.
The next Facilitator Training is scheduled for:
· February 22, 2014 - Bishop O'Connor Center, Madison (9:00am - 3:00pm)
Registration Deadline is Feb. 7
* Two-evening session: $35 per individual or $45 per couple
* Saturday session: $45 per individual or $55 per couple
For those attending as a refresher and who already have a 4th Edition FOCCUS Facilitator Manual: $10/20 (individual/couple) for evening sessions and $20/30 for Saturday session.
Cost includes a $25 FOCCUS Facilitator Manual (reduced price through June 2014) and lunch for Saturday classes. Each facilitator or facilitating couple must have a new FOCCUS manual (Catholic Edition). The FOCCUS 2000 manual is outdated as of January 2014.
