To get your best start as a practitioner of the Self-Parenting Program you can receive personal guidance and tech support by joining a 1 month “getting started” online group. There's one scheduled for next month in your town! You need the yellow book (order through Amazon.com) to study the concepts and to provide the questions for the first two weeks.
Taking this class in a supportive group format allows you to learn from the other students as well, and insures the best possible start towards following the Ten Steps To Intermediate Status.
You can certainly begin SP on your own without taking any classes, but experience proves that most people get lost in their practice because they make mistakes that they are unaware of or consider no big deal. This is your best shot to avoid these problems that typically come up later down the road.
