Jean-Louis Lamboray gave a series of seminars to social service students of the Potsdam University, inviting SALT-CLCP facilitators from Belgium, England, France, India, Kenya, Spain, Thailand, and The Netherlands: “An authentic learning community unfolded as we shared about SALT and CLCP, so we decided to continue.
