The 2016 Self-Parenting Program remains exactly the same as when it was hatched on Mar 1, 1986 at Maisy's Cafe in Neutral Bay, NSW. However, from now on it operates as a member organization. If you are completely new to the SPP, You are welcome to become a Guest Member for 3 months during during which you can explore the site and see what it means to become a S/P Practitioner. It's totally up to you how you would like to proceed.
The ideal way to begin this practice is to take the Online Newbie Course. But if you are confident and organized you can do this program as a self-guided adventure. If money is a concern then ask yourself how much it might be worth for you to become a loving, supportive, and nurturing Inner Parent to your own Inner Child; a couple hundred bucks, a couple of thou, maybe a million or two for the right person. So 99.95 is a reasonable price to spend to build your own emotional/mental growth.
If you are already a S/P Practitioner I'm guessing how happy you are to have an approved S/G Group starting up in your town. Now you can join like-minded people to hang out and talk about what S/P Practitioner like to talk about and need to talk about.
