Participant Feedback:

"Shani presented the course in a professional manner, and in a way that helped avoid too much stress and vicarious trauma for participants. I completed the course 4 years ago and it was traumatic at that time, so I appreciated the way the course was delivered by Shani."

" Very engaging style. Passionate and knowledgable about the subject. Very respectful of participants contributions and mindful of self-care."

" Shani was great, she allowed people to ask questions and talk about situations they'd been involved in."
