I loved Sandy Brownseys workshop; her first-hand examples, interactive style, and modeling of techniques. She provided a great explanation of antecedents and the importance of intervening at that level. I will be sharing information with colleagues and encouraging them to attend future trainings Spectrum Services offers.
