Welcome to Providers Share Workshop (PSW) Facilitator Training

This is an online course in PSW facilitation, led by PSW master trainers and facilitators, and by the original developers of PSW. It's intended for experienced facilitators and trainers, and will give you a detailed introduction to leading the PSW. The course is designed to replace an in-person facilitators training, which would normally take place over several days. The content is divided into four main learning sections, and consists of 19 videos with animations, plus activities to build your understanding of the workshop.
