Our first educational workshop with Fredrike Bannink was a huge success...Here's what one participant had to say...
"Thank you to the CPPA and Fredrike Bannink for bringing the Positive CBT Workshop to Toronto. From the moment that I walked into the room, I was engaged. Through connection with colleagues, the powerful strategies came to life. I left the workshop having experienced the power of this approach and began using the practical strategies with my clients the very next day. Attending the workshop was energizing and inspiring. I’ve been reading Fredrike Bannink’s book and have found it to be a valuable resource for deepening and enriching the learning from the workshop. Many thanks!" - Shirin Khamisa, founder of Careers by Design, Coaching and Counselling
