Reviews from seminars

June 2019

"Excellent job! Great info. Presenter is very knowledgeable and professional"

"I learned things I hadn't known about human trafficking prior to this. I think overall ti was great! The instructor was open and passionate about the topic"

"It was all very informative. The examples/stories helped further explain. This was a lot of info, not sure if considered intro or intermediate. Would not have minded if this had been an 8 hour class."

Most enjoyed: "the knowledge of the instructor; review of how the brain is impacted by trauma and specific interventions to use."
