" Great presentation! I've been to many PESI workshops and this was one of the best. I am a psychologist working in long-term care facilities and would LOVE to see this information in a training for facility staff. They are quick to ask for medications to solve problems they are actually creating with an approach that doesn't work. Education about these issues is a gigantic need! " — Sharon D.
