You will receive downloadable "handouts" each week that will outline the main points and give you things to work on in between sessions. You will also receive instructions to join the Zoom meeting. (You can join by computer, smart phone or telephone, but for best experience we recommend a computer with a full-size screen.) All this information will be made available the day before each Zoom session.
