·Feedback from my previous class participants:

“This is a great opportunity to think about children's distress as a call for help and leadership from adults- and it gives adults/caregivers concrete ways to calm children's alarm systems in loving ways.”

·“What fabulous material and information that makes sense!”

“Christine was a great facilitator. She lead the discussions well and helped to generate stimulating feedback from group members.”
