RDI certified consultan Vicki Parnell will be hosting an online book study on Developing Through Relationships by Alan Fogel. The study will run online beginning May 30th at 11:30 am (CST). It will meet once a month for 4 months.
Developing Through Relationships is a “hotlist” book  on RDI and development that is very accessible and helps explains how individuals develop through their relationships with others. Alan Fogel demonstrates that human development is driven by a social dynamic process called co-regulation—the creative interaction of individuals to achieve a common goal.  

Participants can receive CEU credits for attending all the webinars. If they do not attend each webinar, they must respond to the reflection questions embedded in the recordings and submit to Dr Sheely for recertification.

Since we ask that participants come to the first webinar with the first 3 chapters read, get your book right away!
