In 2020 and 2021, Warren Mansell and Eva de Hullu organized an online MOL training to make the method and theory accessible for international participants. The training was hosted on a google site domain.
The content of that site is replicated here for posterity.

Overview & Purpose
The purpose of this online course is to get started with MOL therapy, both by getting acquainted with Perceptual Control Theory, the theory behind MOL and practising MOL questions in interaction. This Open Online (free) course is offered to school staff, counsellors, therapists, mental health professionals, and others who work with people experiencing distress or mental health difficulties. This course is also suitable for anyone wanting to help people deal better with a current stressful situation, or interested in improving their overall wellbeing.
- You will learn to understand the principles of control, conflict and reorganization.
- You will learn to use curious questioning to maintain the MOL goals of allowing the client to talk freely about his or her problems and notice disruptions to broaden client’s awareness.
