Augment ability to provide successful treatment for people living with severe mental illness?
Bridging the gap between theoretical principles and practical applications is easy when learning from someone educated as a rehabilitation counselor who lived for more than a decade with acute symptoms of schizoaffective disorder bipolar type.
Learning from a person living successfully in recovery, allows students to catch the vision that recovery is not only possible, with proper supports, it’s probable.
Nearly one hundred guest lectures at ten universities in the San Diego area for a variety of disciplinary university programs, speak to the dynamic and captivating guest lectures and university sponsored CEU workshops.
