What people say about Lorraine:
"Well paced, using case discussions to reinforce learning was very helpful, sessions were interactive. It was a particularly great that Trainer is an LD specialist who also conducts MHA assessments as such was able to help clarify the legislative principles underpinning assessments for LD clients and areas where AMHPS would generally struggle. Really enjoyed the course"

"Excellent course and excellent trainer"
"The course was very interesting , information and interactive. The case studies really helped me think of other avenues available to tap into, in providing the best and appropriate service for my patients"
"Fab training - clearly communicated & at a nice pace - enabling us to listen & process. I liked the polls, but especially the case studies Lorraine shared with us from her practice - real people- brought it all alive & immediate. Very useful training with lots of food for thought. Thank you Lorraine."
