The Correctional Trainer: The 4 E’s of Transformational Trainings, Part II

In the first part of this two-part article, we introduced the 4 E’s model of training design:
Engage, Energize, Empower, and Enjoy. The Immersive Experiential training model uses the principle of 4 E’s with its emotional intelligence training.

The foundation of affirmation, respect and caring creates trust and safety within which participants become more open and connection with self and others develops.

Participants are able to see themselves and their behavior truthfully. From here, skills of communication and cooperation are taught developing a sense of hope that change is possible. Participants now have the attitude and skills to change themselves which gives them a sense of personal responsibility to make change. The end result of experiencing the Immersive Experiential training is that they, in fact, are changed in the process and they see themselves and others in a new light. When participants see themselves more clearly, they see everything else, including other people, more clearly.
