"The passion to teach and provide the community with information on these topics is truly evident and inspirational from these presenters. The joy and genuine love to just provide patients with the best care and providers with the knowledge to do so, is something that draws me back to this group all the time." J.Q.
"Julie and Brittany great job of the hybrid piece and making it feel like we were all together. The case examples were wonderful, videos were wonderful. I really liked the problem solving and creating a solution with one case, piece by piece." M.M.
"I found all the presenters to be authentic throughout the course. It is refreshing to see therapists identify areas they have done well, and areas where they have struggled or still struggle with. I find in other courses with specific approaches, they are an all or nothing and need to be perfect to get buy in from the attendees. This was the opposite, I was so grateful to attend a course where honesty, patient partnership, and success in recovery (however that looks) were the core of the course. Also, the depth of experience, knowledge, and skill that Julie & Brittany demonstrated was the highlight, I always learn so much from listening to your clinical reasoning, and humbled by your interactions with your patients."
