For CORE COMMUNICATION, each person uses a CORE Pac, which comes in one of two kinds: Large or Small
The Large CORE Pac contains:
1 CORE COMMUNICATION: Maps, Skills, and Processes Workbook (196 pages, 2011)
2 Large Skills Mats* (one for talking and the other for listening)
1 Small Tabletop/Laptop Skills Mat**
1 Awareness Wheel pad - an Awareness Wheel is printed on each sheet of the pad for use in processing current and future issues.
The Small CORE Pac contains everything in the Large CORE Pac, except for the 2 Large Skills Mats
* Large Skills mats are made of canvas cloth, each about 30 x 30 inches. Each mat has either the Awareness Wheel or the Listening Cycle Map on it, so that it can be stepped on during practice — for visual prompting, helpful coaching, and kinesthetic learning.
** Small Tabletop/Laptop Skills mats are made of canvas cloth, about 15" wide x 10" high, with both the Awareness Wheel and the Listening Cycle Maps on it. This mat is useful for visual prompting of skill use in a conversation.
