This is the first of twelve recorded webinars in the Getting Connected: Building Skill to Support GEMS webinar series with Teepa Snow.

The Positive Physical Approach (PPA) is designed to help you quickly determine a person’s ability to respond to cues and take in information. In this session, learn the value of noticing these clues so you can identify their GEMS and emotional states before you introduce an agenda.
By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:
