Online training starting Jan 20, 2014
Do you need additional training on how to handle your cartoon elephants? If you’ve purchased a copy of the The Emotional Extremist’s Guide to Handling Cartoon Elephants: How to solve elephantine emotional problems without getting run over, chased, flattened, squished, or abandoned by your true cartoons, and you’re in the midst of figuring our elephantine situations (either for yourself or for those around you), this training is for you. While it isn’t required for you to possess a copy of the book to benefit from these trainings, it is (of course!) recommended.
Mondays at 1:00 Eastern Standard Time
January 20 until February 24, 2014
6 classes total
What is a teleseminar? A teleseminar is a format for delivering presentations online. All teleseminar series will be recorded and there will be an opportunity for Q&A’s. Can’t make it live? You can always listen to it later at your own convenience. The classes will last no more than one hour.
Summary of what you get when you sign up for the classes:
- The opportunity to listen live and ask questions
- Recordings of classes that you miss if you can’t make it
- An action sheet from each class to complete after the class is over
- Exposure to works in progress for the new cartoon elephant book (see below!)
List of classes:
1/20/13 What is an elephino? Essential tips for sorting out messy experiences, confused elephants, and infused criticisms.
1/27/13 What to do when your elephants move in fast-forward: Practical steps for managing intense anxiety (elephants that never slow down!).
2/3/13 Are your elephants making you sick? What to do when you suspect your physical discomfort may really be a cartoon elephant.

2/24/13 What good are your cartoon elephants? What you need to know in order to put cartoon elephant information into action.
Classes are offered at $35 each. However, pre-registration is currently open for those who want to sign up in advance for all six classes. If you sign up before December 10, you will save $5 per class. The total for all classes is $210, but you only pay $180 if you sign up now.
As a special bonus for taking the classes, you will receive some exposure to works in progress for the next cartoon elephant book: The Emotional Extremist’s Guide to Handling Cartoon Elephants Do-it-Yourself Emotional Problem Solving Workbook. If you read the cartoon elephant book and are looking for more, you will start to get tidbits about the new material before the book is even published!
My Disclaimer: This is not psychotherapy and should not be considered an agreement of any sorts of a professional, medical, or therapy relationship. These classes are classes, not treatment. They are educational! And just like any live class, there will be opportunities for Q&A’s and action homework handout sheets to complete on your own.
Refund policy: Partial refunds are available only for those who pay in advance for the entire cartoon elephant series. If you sign up in advance and are dissatisfied with the cartoon elephant series, you will be refunded $150 of the $180 only if you e-mail me before Monday evening January 20, 2014. If you choose to purchase the individual teleseminar series separately there will be no refunds.
