This is the 'hotest' item from our Press. If you are interested in and/or using PATH, this is a must. It goes along with the PATH Training Video and the PATH Demonstration video. This workbook is being used by groups around the world. It is sold individually or in bulk, so that each member of the PATH event can have a copy. The 60 pages includes a color graphic of a real PATH. The book outlines the PATH process in depth. According to those doing PATH, it is indispensable. One reader said "no matter how many PATH's I do, I always take it with me."
PATH is a creative planning tool which starts in the future and works backwards to an outcome of first (beginning) steps that are possible and positive. It is excellent for team building. It has been used to mediate conflicts. It is loved by people who actually want to change the ways we currently work. Groups teaching PATH as a tool will hopefully have a copy for each student. PATH is not for the faint of heart. It is very results oriented.
Anyone doing PATH. Relevant for all ages and all populations. Now in use by architects, small business firms, medical professionals, aboriginal communities and organizations, as well as educators and human service providers.
