Step 3: Practice the method (using visual prompts from the timeslips.org Creativity Center) a minimum of three times with groups or individuals and write down creative output (stories, poems, songs, etc..).

Step 4: Submit creative output to your assigned Certified Trainer through TimeSlips.org.

Step 5: Complete the Self-Evaluation located on your timeslips.org dashboard for your Certified Trainer’s review. They will provide coaching suggestions for next steps.

Step 6: Once the Self-Evaluation is complete, attend a coaching session with your Certified Trainer to finish your training.

Step 7: Celebrate your individual certification!

Online Training

Certified Facilitator training

The online training includes six modules that take approximately 2.5 hours to complete. You can stop and start the videos at your convenience.

Each module delves into key concepts of the TimeSlips method, including:

Module 1 – Exploring Creativity
Module 2 – Ageism and Person-Centered Care
Module 3 – Key Concepts and What’s Needed
Module 4 – One Step at a Time
Module 5 – Practice Creative Engagement
Module 6 – Troubleshooting

Once you complete the online modules, we assign a Certified Trainer to you. The Certified Trainer will work with you throughout your practice sessions and self-evaluation so that by the end of your training, you will know what you’re doing right.
