We Appreciate It!

I thought the training was great and the materials! I really think this is the best approach I have found and want to develop my skill at it. I was an assistant professor in dietetics before I became a diabetes educator and I tend to lecture (use to deliver three hour lectures to the night class and can talk for hours without stopping LOL.)

I have tried to get my diabetes clients to participate more in classes and am familiar with the conversation maps. I thought they were a great idea but had difficulty implementing them. I need a little more coaching on that. But this course was very helpful, trying it myself and hearing the others try gave me a lot of help with what kind of questions to ask and what not to ask.

I thought it was a very valuable experience. I can’t wait to start a group. I think the participant handouts and teaching guides are OUTSTANDING. I always want to edit things and improve them, but I couldn’t do better than these materials. They are truly excellent. Thank you for the program.
