Activities of reflection and group discussion follow interactive presentation of contents to promote shared knowledge construction and situated strategies development. The didactic sequence and activities organization foster active engagement and involvement from participants.
Detailed sessions guidelines and materials are provided on an open-basis regime for trainers and facilitators to adapt them to specific audiences and contexts.

Courses were piloted through 28 workshops, courses and related initiatives all around the world. Foundations, rationale and empirical evidence of their effectiveness can be found in several scientific publications (here).
