Irwin Krieger, LCSW
May be the best workshop I have attended. Great presenter.
What a great, informative, and knowledgeable speaker! Wonderful training.
This was one of the most helpful and efficient mental health seminars I have ever attended. The presenter was extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and effective. He kept things on topic and did not get side-tracked by tangents.
A very professional, yet personable speaker. I particularly appreciated his ability to engage the large audience and yet keep right on schedule. His rephrasing of audience questions was particularly helpful.
This was a very well thought out with the amount of content well matched to the amount of time. I would recommend it highly to my colleagues.
