United Front: Building Community Group Coaching Pilot
- 18 (Registered)
Course exploring the intertwined concepts of what creates community, an intricate and strong internal culture, and builds system resilience against being (re-)traumatized in the future.
Self-paced with live discussions on Sundays 2:00pm – 3:30pm EST/EDT
Coaching group alumni or United Front: Building Trust students only. Stand by for the course to be re-released as a stand-alone, self-paced course later in 2022.
This our most dense course. Join us to explore the intersection of community, culture, communication, trust, and selves-care woven together with the idea that there’s a direct connection between deliberately building internal culture and developing system-level resilience that may help protect your members from taking on new traumas in the future.
This ongoing selves-paced course discusses:
- How 5 components of building culture relate with 6 qualities of resilience (and working on them!)
- Developing internal values that y’all can hang your& collective hat on
- Taking your internal trust to a new level
- Fostering a sense of group identity, belongingness, equality and internal inclusion
- Up-leveling your internal teamwork
Suitable candidates for this advanced-level course will have completed the United Front: Building Trust course (required: pilot alumni, coaching group, or the self-paced version), and working on incorporating building trust into their system culture. In addition, we recommend at least several of these qualities:
- Have watched the Better Spoons conference presentation, or taken the United Front: Developing Better Spoons course, and have system members working on incorporating the principles into their own life, and working presence & passion into their culture.
- Have taken a prior group coaching pilot with the Crisses (required for now).
- Already done significant group headwork, group projects, or have developed a sense of internal community already. (Can include elaborate innerworld design projects, rescue missions, trauma work, completing the United Front Boot Camp, etc.)
- Have a strong “leadership role” group of residents (“elders”, for example) who work together and help foster and guide other (consenting) headmates in their system.
- Excellent of communication in-system (the ability to have large system forums, system-wide votes, debate forums, internal workshops, skill-sharing, working groups, or other types of elaborate internal meetings).
- Working deliberately with overwhelming majority consent of known system members towards becoming a lifelong plural or group entity (i.e. healthy multiplicity, or a similar concept).
- Have a group shared value of continual selves-improvement, or lifelong learning.

Accessibility & Workload
This coaching group contains a mix of audio, video, and written materials/suggested assignments. To get the most from the course it’s suggested to take advantage of all the provided materials unless it is marked as optional.
Please notify us if you& require accommodations we are always working on ways to increase accessibility within our limited resources and will gladly discuss how to make the course more accessible. One known issue with this course is that the material is rather dense, which is why it is selves-paced now. We always take feedback, so those with text-processing issues, for example, may need us to modify course materials.
Live meetings currently are being held on a video/audio/text platform. We will gladly work out ways to make this more accessible as needed.
