NOTE: It is vital to convey that when Dawn is hosting a training event she is NOT representing any regulatory body, training association, or counselling organization. Thus, all audience members are expected to critically reflect upon any of Dawn's/DPS training material so they can take from this training what fits –accept, reject, or modify– according to their counselling practice and style, agency expectations and protocols, their values, and their code of ethics/standards of practice. BONUS: Dawn offers consultation services (on a sliding scale) to help digest (modify) any of her material to ensure a good fit that aligns with your values, counselling style, and needs.
