Elements of planning and conducting workshops or group training sessions are explored in Section 3. Section 4 describes the steps in facilitating a problem-solving session in an early childhood program. Section 5 offers tips on marketing one's skills. Appended materials include information on the WCCIP consultation process, outlines of learning activities for use in adult education, and a brief resource bibliography. (RH)
