School Counselor, Houston Texas
I have learned techniques that will help me develop skills as a school counselor. The ways to “disarm” a bully are now something I can purposely use. I am glad I attended this seminar and will recommend it to other counselors!

This will directly and tremendously help individuals of all ages and levels.
Stephanie Macherone, School Counselor, Fort Plain, NY
Thank you so much for sharing your experience and skills with how to deal with bullying form the inside out. I am sure the students will be using those skills and teaching others what to do. Your book is wonderful. I have added it to my book collection and will use it daily. Thank you for making a difference in our students lives.
