What past participants have said about this self-paced online/ homestudy program

Loved that I could work through at my own pace and Leah's examples of clients in her own work.


Great that Leah addressed commonly asked questions or concerns and practical strategies as well as how they are implemented.


The structure was designed to facilitate step-wise learning, and the case studies provided practical information about putting learning into practice.


I enjoyed being able to work through it at my own pace, pausing the presentations to process information before continuing.


I liked the ease of access, clear framework and presentation, Leah’s engaging style of presentation and use of case studies and activities.


I liked the format. I came and went as I had time available. I liked the end of day quiz and the mix of presentation content.


Highly practical and comprehensive techniques. Excellent presentation.
