What People are Saying About These Virtual Sessions:

Feeling connected with others from all over the world over Zoom was highly significant . . . I loved that I walked out of this training feeling confident with the new skills learned to teach PD.

The online format was great! I felt connected to the trainers and participants even though we were not in the same room. The break-out rooms, and constant activities were very helpful!

I cannot imagine having trainers who were more knowledgeable or more well-prepared to present this program than Kathleen and Teresa were. They were kind, friendly and extremely well-organized! They created a warm and supportive environment!

I really found the session beneficial. I was wondering if the online training would be impactful, and I was positively surprised . . . Every session was 2 hours length, but it always felt as if it was 5 min only.
