Established in over 50 countries, Marte Meo is valued because it helps build connection and establish better relationships.

The Marte Meo Practitioner training is a 6 day course. Participants learn to incorporate supportive Marte Meo communication skills into their daily work and are specially trained to be developmentally oriented through the use of the developmental checklists.
