• The ARC Process

    Our interactive courses for groups helps clarify their purpose while creating alignment around their goals and values-even in the presence of competing interests among members.

  • Introductory, intermediate and advanced offerings

    Try out one of our free introductory webinars or do an introduction to basic facilitation skills. Then come on a Prosocial Learning Journey with us. Once you know that Prosocial is for you, join our Prosocial Practitioner Training so that you can do Prosocial with groups everywhere.

  • A global community

    Working together, we can evolve our methods and create positive change on a global scale, starting with single groups and multi-group cultural ecosystems. Prosocial is designed to complement, not compete with, other change methods.

What students say

Chris Barthold

BCBA, Associate Professor and Program Coordinator

"This course was life-changing. It really gets you back to your values and shows you ways to help groups do the same. Highly recommended!:

MATT M PEREZ

COO/Co-founder, Nearsoft, Inc.

"The most valuable thing about this course is to know that I am not alone, there are others out there, at the edge, moving in the same direction. The course material was very helpful, beyond what the PROSOCIAL book offered. Paul did a great job of bringing the material alive and he made it all look easy."

CHLOE SPOERRY

CEO Hivisasa

"Prosocial tools have allowed me to manage a very difficult conflict inside our company. Instead of the conflict damaging or ruining our company, it made us stronger and built better foundations."

Jordan K. Harmon

LCSW

"Throughout my career as a clinical social worker, I've been wondering how to apply evidence based practices at macro levels - you know - to change the world. Prosocial is exactly what I've been looking for - contextual behavioral science converging with evolution science in a practical and actionable way!"

Tibet Sprague

Director of Technology Hylo

"This facilitator training was a well designed and extremely valuable crash course in the powerful ProSocial framework and set of tools for teaching groups to cooperate better. I highly recommend this program for anyone who wants to help their organization or community work together more effectively, and/or wants to level up their ability to be a leader in groups of all kinds!"

Upcoming Courses and Webinars

Featured Course: Expanding your Facilitation Toolkit

Starting Feb 28th/Mar 1st for 4 weeks

The Prosocial Facilitator Training helps you to learn the Prosocial model but we do not have a lot of time to teach people basic facilitation skills. If you have never facilitated groups, or if you are keen to expand your facilitation skills, this is the course for you. This course is offered by one of our partner organizations: Zenergy International. You can do this training before, during or after the Prosocial Facilitator Training.

Introductory Courses and Past Webinars

Learn the basics

These are introductory offerings from our community. Start here for finding live events, recordings and other introductory courses.

Prosocial Learning Journeys and Action Labs

Learn by doing focused on questions that matter.

These will be 8-week flexible experiences built around questions of deep interest to our community like “How can we build more trust and collaboration in our group” or “How can we best decide together”. We will be seeking your input on learning journeys you would like to see offered, and engaging our facilitator community to help bring their expertise to facilitating them. The aims of these experiences will be to a) have a lived experience of what a trusting, prosocial group looks like, b) form a community with a cohort of like-minded social change agents and c) learn and experience the rudiments of Prosocial.

Prosocial Practitioner Training

Join the global community of practitioners

Prosocial Practitioner Training (PPT): We consistently get feedback that, while participants love the experience of the PPT, it is very intense. From next year, we will be expanding the Facilitator Training to run over 6 months. There will be new content on helping groups and networks to act more prosocially, we will be streamlining the certification process and, most importantly, giving you a lot more time to practice doing Prosocial with groups while you learn. We are also working hard to provide Prosocial practitioners with opportunities to run their own Prosocial Learning Journeys and Action Labs with groups and topics you care about. You will emerge with a unique capacity to help groups and networks culturally evolve. With all that additional content, time and opportunities for practice, we will also be increasing the pricing of the Practitioner Training substantially to better reflect the costs and time involved in delivering this extensive program. We expect that lots of people will find the Learning Journeys and Action Labs meet their needs for economical training in Prosocial, and that only those who are keen to devote a substantial amount of energy to consulting or facilitating with Prosocial will choose to go down the route of practitioner training. We won't be offering this training until the second half of 2022 as we work to consolidate the Prosocial Learning Journey/Adaptive Action Lab approach and build new content for this facilitator training. So watch this space for more details as we finalize our plans.

Prosocial Spirituality

Not just another change method

Prosocial Spirituality is a research-based training program designed to meet the needs of 21st-century groups seeking both inner and outer change.

All types of groups can benefit from The ARC Process

  • Business Teams: In all kinds of settings, our method plays well alongside Agile and many other management practices.

  • Organizations with several groups: Coordination with other groups is one of our core principles and integral to the method.

  • New Groups: The ARC Process is the ideal first step for any new group, building a strong foundation from day one.

  • Self-Organizing Groups: Such as community groups, political movements, non-hierarchical groups with complex structures.

  • Expanding Groups: Our method clearly outlines goals and internal processes, making it easier to onboard newcomers and grow.

  • Groups in Conflict: The Prosocial ARC Process is designed to balance conflicting interests and align members around a shared purpose.
