How do I find a practice client?

Past clients or students, family friends, and family members can all make an excellent practice client. The Sklar Process has been used successfully with individuals 4th grade through adult. However, if your practice client is a child or adolescent, at least one parent should attend the sessions as well. Parental participation is key to success for individuals in this age range. Your practice client will need to be willing to meet for roughly an hour a week for seven or eight weeks.

You are responsible for finding a practice client. Obtaining a practice client is essential for this course.

What if I need to miss a class?

Don’t worry! All the webinar sessions will be recorded and available to you in case you miss a class or want to review the lecture. However, we request that you participate in at least six of the webinars live. We don’t want you to miss your chance to share and ask questions.

How exactly does the webinar work? Do I need special technology?

The webinars are very user-friendly. You will need access to the internet with a computer or tablet. The only additional technology you will need is a headset with a microphone.

Each week we will send you an email before class and you will enter the webinar “class room” with a single click. Inside the “classroom” you will be able to see and hear Marydee and her slide show. You will also be able speak using your computer’s microphone and be seen using your web camera.

We will have technology support available to answer your questions and help you with any difficulties that arise during the webinars. We know that for many of you, this is your first webinar. If you have any questions, please contact us (madeline@efsuccess.info). We want to make this a wonderful experience for you!
