View Dates Advanced Facilitation Workshop

We are thrilled to now offer two options for you to participate in the Advanced Facilitation Workshop: 

In-person or Virtual

Both options will inspire you with fresh ideas and energy to bring back to your Centering groups!

Join a small group of seasoned Centering facilitators for an interactive learning experience to bring your facilitation skills to the next level. You’ll explore new facilitative approaches to difficult topics, conversations and other group challenges, based on your own personal experience. You'll be motivated to try new openings, activities, mindfulness exercises and closings. You'll have the opportunity to identify and develop strategies that address specific challenges in your CenteringPregnancy, CenteringParenting and CenteringHealthcare groups.  

A health equity lens is woven throughout the Advanced Facilitation workshop. You'll benefit from the wisdom and experiences of other experienced workshop participants and explore strategies for enhancing your co-facilitation approach.

The Virtual Advanced Facilitation Workshop was created to provide an accessible alternative. No travel and less time away from your clinic. The only requirement is that each participant MUST attend from a computer (laptop or tablet) with both audio and video capability. Please note that the participants must attend all of the sessions to successfully complete this workshop.


We welcome facilitators from licensed sites who have attended a Basic Facilitation Workshop and have facilitated a minimum of 20 hours of Centering groups. Choose the option and dates that are best for you: in-person or virtual.

Successful completion of the Advanced Facilitation Workshop is a requirement for CHI Certification.

All participants should select their Centering Facilitator's Guides (CenteringPregnancy, CenteringParenting and CenteringHealthcare) when registering.
