Two or three participants will present each session. Participants can plan to present every other month. There will be a stretch break in the middle of the seminar.

Participants will prepare a family diagram to accompany the presentation. Privacy and confidentiality will be maintained. No names or identifying information will be used. Participants will be responsible for obtaining a signed release if necessary.
