I thought the course was relaxed, well delivered and relevant to our daily needs and roles both in career and society. The information, strategies and practices could be used straight away with good effect to the recipients.
I used a couple of the techniques the following day in a particularly challenging situation in my own work place and it was well received and appreciated by both recipient and their family.
