How long is the Points program and is it the same for everyone?

The basic program spans 6 months. However, it is suggested that many, if not most individuals engage for 1 year due to the nature of physiological mechanisms, explorations and sustenance methods that can be strengthened over time. The phase II portion, is the 2nd 6 months in which it’s assumed that the individual has gained new skills during phase I. During phase II these skills are deepened /crystalized and expanded. These skills are applied practically; performed throughout the day as well as applied situationally. It is considered performance in real time as opposed to “practice”. Although, the practice time does support performance level experience. This holds true for both the individual program and the group program.

If desired, a client may participate in both group and individual programs either simultaneously or consecutively.
