Co-Chairs: Thomas Marcacci, IPSO Editor Elect (Italy) and Dr. Monica Bomba, IPSO VP of Europe (Italy)

“Training Today” is a discussion group on training experiences, open to candidates and analysts. After a brief presentation of the three training models, we will discuss in small groups the different training experiences, between continuity and discontinuity. The aim is to promote a greater understanding of the learning process during training, in a dynamic spatio-temporal dimension, which changes not only, but also, as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
