What past participants say:
The trainers were very informed with an obvious wealth of experience coupled with a solid academic background that support the activities.
I was taught how to be a facilitator not a caregiver.
This workshop was inspirational, timely, to the point, energetic, friendly.
This training helped move my one-on-one counselling skills into a group environment.
