The content of this powerpoint is organised into three sections. It is recommended that you do not run through this entire training in one sitting. It can be conducted via distance learning methods, or over the course of several days for example as part of a workshop or through action learning sets, or embedded into other training and any other appropriate mechanisms.
At the end of each section, there is a suggestion of a practical activity, to give participants an opportunity to practice what has just been presented, to discuss and ask questions. This activity can be done as a whole group, or in small groups, or individually.
