“I would thoroughly recommend the course. I think for the cost it is really good value for money and could give practitioners a lot to think about and will perhaps challenge some.

“It also offers some simple changes to practice/attitudes that could have a really positive impact.” – Tania Wainman – Oxfordshire County Council

Duration: 1.5 hours
