What People Are Saying:

Excellent reminders. I especially found the suggestions for closing a session with an emotional client helpful. It was a very thoughtful way to end without them having a feeling of being cut off or abandoned.

Really clear, actionable suggestions. Videos included as reference were very effective teaching tools.

Kathleen A.

This course had some good refreshers and great new information for me. I found the "Now I am aware" exercise to use on yourself and others particularly helpful. We examine our workspace, our preparations, and daily practices for ourselves. I'd recommend this course.
