Very informative!!
helpful information
Effective communication is one of the key components for positive relationships. We must not only be an effective listener, but an effective talker as well. We must take all threats seriously and document everything! Great training! This reinforced everything that my supervisor trained me on.

I thought this webinar was very detailed and interesting. I found a lot of the information to be factual dealing with parents in an uproar. Will definitely be using some of these tactics if ever faced with situations.
