Staff Development & Presentations

I have extensive experience training and consulting to social service providers, home-based early-intervention workers, early-childhood educators, group home staff, and other para-professionals.

In my work with these kinds of staff, I focus on:
  • Highlighting the significance of the work they do
  • Encouraging them to think critically about their work
  • Developing attitudes that promote the provision of high-quality services
  • Valuing the people they serve
  • Formulating useful interventions
  • Growing as people/professionals
