As the Foundations series has evolved over decades there is an increasing number of people studying the model and the pedagogy. To support the continued offering of Foundations in the future, Betty has been mentoring a cohort of people who are developing the necessary skills and experience to carry the work forward. Seminar participants benefit from the presence of assistants, which increases participants’ opportunities for direct attention and for questions, and which provides a variety of perspectives and ways of talking about interpreting and the IMI.
