- Great workshop!
- Great presentation! Great review & reframing of info (home& work), very positive and energetic.
- Great presenter, very interesting, relaxed atmosphere.
- Would have liked to spend more time on some of the strategies which were discussed in the last 30 minutes.
- Instructor has lots of knowledge and is an awesome presenter.
- Great speaker, likely more useful for a new caseworker.
- Gary is a very engaging and effective presenter. A lot of the nature was already familiar to me, but was presented in an easy-to-remember fashion.
- Probably the best workshop I’ve been to! Bring Gary back again!
- Speaker very dynamic and engaging to which material delivered in a way that is easy to receive.
- When I arrived today and saw the website I was privileged to be in Gary’s workshop. I work in a rural agency & have used Gary’s website for information and articles many times. Thank you Gary! Keep up the great work!
- I enjoyed the animated way Gary presents. It keeps the topic interesting and doesn’t’ appear as long.
- Excellent presenter, Don’t change anything there.
- Very energetic- some of this information we have already learned- our background. i.e. Child development.
- Awesome- Thank you!
- Gary is excellent source of knowledge. I’ve researched his site for over one year now! I read his articles and feel inspired. He’s helped me in my personal life through his website. Excellent for all who work with children. I would listen to him for a FULL DAY workshop. Bring him back! Keep up the great work! You’re making a difference.
o Recommended Excellent author: Adele Faber
o Future workshops: Problem Solving, skills for children experiencing low self-esteem.
- Child Development was not pertinent to what I needed. Discussion of types of baggage and how to deal with it would have been a better use of time.
- Gary was enthusiastic and easy to listen to (captivating). I learned lots.
- Good slideshow presentation, a lot of information not sure it is transferable to my volunteers- This was more parenting 101.
- He’s very engaging and I enjoyed the information provided. It will be very useful for training “Bigs”
- Presentation was good. I feel that some of the beginnings’ information was unnecessary (personally), Overall very good workshop. I use your articles daily and find them very useful. Thank you.
- Just skimmed over subject, wish he’d go deeper, already studied Eric Erickson, and wanted to learn new things.
