“I really enjoyed how the facilitators took turns sharing information, this helped keep me alert. I also enjoyed how friendly and open the facilitators were. The knowledge that they were able to provide as our cohort shared various experiences was invaluable. Mostly, I appreciate that the facilitators gave us space to process our feelings, and they were able to gauge the breaks perfectly. Outstanding training on a very tough topic.”
