Participant Feedback

Thanks so much Steve for your recent visit to Georgian College. Not only did my Justice students come away with some much needed information for their future careers, but they also came away with some valuable life messages. In an age where so many of our young people suffer with high levels of stress, anxiety and depression, your message of self care and asking for help, came through loud and clear. Thank you for an informative and interesting presentation. Your time and expertise is much appreciated.

“We engaged our leaders and front line staff in the two day Group Crisis Intervention training with instructor Steve Horner.  Overall, the training was excellent and I would highly recommend this training for other organizations that are involved in group crisis interventions!  The training methods Steve utilized made for an interesting and informative two days where he was able to format the training specific for our organization and provide examples from his own vast experience on the topic.  Steve did a great job of explaining the intervention types so that they can be clearly applied as a tool kit in situations that our staff and leaders will be faced with.  As well, Steve’s style and sense of humour was enjoyable.”
