Thank you for a job well done. I used the concept of the overlapping circles…with one mother. She is now listening more, judging less and is being more introspective. Her daughter is finding her way back to school and completing homework more readily. It’s always nice to hear experience coupled with expertise, insight and a practical approach.

Miquela Rivera, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Albuquerque, New Mexico

What I especially liked about this seminar (in addition to the excellence of the content) is that Dr. Sutton worked progressively through the resource handbook. Many presenters are random, having us flip back and forth through the book. Dr. Sutton covered the material thoroughly and even knew the page numbers. I liked that!

Glenda Minniece, Classroom Management Consultant, Houston, Texas

The program attracted a record breaking crowd, and the participants evaluated your presentation highly.

Birgit Rahman, Program Coordinator, Lubbock, Texas
