About InsideClean Series 2

These four modules will provide unique perspectives into what goes on behind the scenes when highly experienced clean facilitators work with clients.

The theme for the 2020 series is The Structure of Desire. This invaluable material for mastering the craft of Clean Language and Symbolic Modelling will include four 90-minute live workshops (starting 19:00 UK time):

1. Outcomes: The desire to create - March 30
2. Remedies: The desire to heal - May 18
3. Problems: What are they good for? - July 20
4. Resources: Making use of what you have - Oct 5

Each module includes a live workshop (recorded in case you miss it) and a pre-workshop activity to get you in the frame of mind – and lots of post-workshop resources.

Sign up and you will also get access to special bonus material not available elsewhere.

Although our PRO (Problem-Remedy-Outcome) model is at the core of facilitating with Symbolic Modelling, it (along with Resources) represents only a tiny fraction of our thinking about these fundamental aspects  of being human. During the 2020 series we will unveil much more ...

Benefits of signing up for Series 2

  • Pre-workshop material

    We provide a short pre-workshop activity to help you start thinking about the topic. The preparation can involve a short exercise, a video to watch or an article to read – paired with some questions to help you reflect on the topic. This way, when you take part in or replay the live workshop you'll be ready to dive straight into the material.

  • The workshops

    Each of the four 90-minutes live workshops will focus on an aspect of the series topic rarely taught in our 20+ years of training. We cover what goes on 'behind the scenes’ during a clean facilitation. The workshops include activities you can do with friends or colleagues to try out the ideas and learn from your own experience.

  • Your library of learning materials

    All pre-work, the workshop recording and extensive post-workshop resources will remain available within your InsideClean dashboard. Learning happens on many levels, and it is always useful to go back and review the material with new eyes.

  • Bonus material

    You will also have access to never-released-before bonus material. It will include video recordings and transcripts of complete clean coaching sessions, plus videos of interviews with Penny & James about their development of David Grove's ideas.
