Over the years, we have collaborated in many ways with our colleagues over at OnlinEvents! Not only do we get together at face-to-face conferences whenever possible (easier for Kate than DeeAnna of course), we also meet at online conferences such as CESL (Counselor Education in Second Life) and even shared an island in Second Life for awhile. John has filmed our Open Office hours, and Chat-Queen Sandra facilitated the live events for us. John has also contributed chapters in two of our edited textbooks. Wherever possible, we share resources and put our heads together to work out how we can best serve our respective audiences in the therapy/coaching field and its related professions.
For example, the free-to-attend online interviews that John and Sandra so generously make available to practitioners worldwide are a staple of Online Therapy Institute (OTI) courses – whether as part of the fields of online therapy and coaching (such as Phillipa Weitz talking about the online therapeutic relationship) or more general issues in psychotherapy (such as Mick Cooper being interviewed about systematic outcome and process feedback). Our students get alerted well in advance to these free events through their private closed Therapist Community on Facebook, and can use them in writing up their course assignments.
We were pleased to see the new development of Therapy Workshops from our colleagues – these low-cost online events have more of a workshop feel than an interview, while retaining all the learning philosophy that John and Sandra are rightly proud of – watch the video below to hear more about that philosophy.
One of the obvious bonuses of recording online interviews and workshops is that they are available online for evermore – and we have teamed up with OnlinEvents to ensure that our students now get FREE access to the back catalogue! That’s over 200 educational CPD videos that our students can take advantage of, and the list grows every week!
If you’re already one of our students, you can sign up for your student membership here! If you’re not, remember us when you are researching your training needs – remember, as well as free access to the OnlinEvents library, you also get a free subscription to TILT Magazine!
Thanks again to John and Sandra for their ongoing collaboration with us to meet the needs of those interested in our field – we look forward to many more years of it!
