What previous delegates are saying about this course
It was informative, a great way to change practice and a proactive way for results and reports.
Self assessment has been useful to avoid burnout and compassion fatigue. We can support others in a different way to counselling.
The use of the online screening process and the report produced was very helpful to see and clearly, it has a lot of applications clinically and for research.
