What our past participants have said about the Day 1-2 livestream mode of delivery

By far not only one of the best professional training I have attended but done so smoothly via livestream


This really is one of the best courses I have done. Professionally presented - backed up with quality research.


One of the best programs I have ever participated in. It was well organised and the communication about the program including tech support was outstanding. The program itself was engaging and so practical.


A very interactive livestream...the two days went by fast. I did not leave home... Outstanding training.


Really enjoyed the structure of the program with theory-based learning then being able to consolidate with practical activities online. All underpinned by Leah's tremendous passion and knowledge on PTSD, an engaging 2-day training.


It was great to be able to attend training remotely. I felt that the training was as good as if it would have been live. I also loved the content. The attention to detail was exemplary.


I thought this training was brilliant and so informative. I especially appreciated the real-life examples, I find this really helps to consolidate my learning. Well done Leah on presenting online, I can't imagine that would have been easy!
