“.. Admittedly, I wasn’t excited about attending another trauma training…it seems in the past few years I’ve attended so many of them, all of them being exactly the same. The angle yours was coming from was one I hadn’t heard before. In fact, I was supposed to leave in the afternoon for another training and begged my boss to let me stay because it was so informative. So thank you for taking a different approach, I think it’s something more districts and mental health professionals need!” – Ft. Meyers, FL
