     Comments from Past Participants

    As was the case last year, I loved it! I have never been to a conference where I was so attentive, interested, and able to experience learning.

    —George, Clinical Social Worker

    This was an incredible conference. I will definitely be back. Wonderful!

    —Sue, Junior High School Teacher

    Excellent personal and professional experience. Very empowering.

    —Mike, Dual Diagnosis Counselor

    It is head and shoulders above many of the conferences I have attended.

    —Kimberly, Psychiatric Nurse

    Attending this conference for a second time, I didn’t feel it was possible to have a week long program on the same level of excellence as I experienced the first. Happily, this year’s conference proved me very wrong.

    —Sheila, High School Teacher
