An SCF-led, post-training survey was conducted after the 2015 pre-conference Core Concepts workshop with about 60 responses, which was approximately a 94 percent response rate. Following are some of the comments and data from the survey:
“Ability to speak to people at every level, ability to make this comfortable and trust each other and inspired hope for change…Will be the change I want to see.”
“Just fabulous. One of my best to life experiences. And I tend to be an opposer so I really mean that!”
“Profound experience. Sublime facility. Truly nurturing of our humanness. Your vision is beautiful! I wish this were a part of every helping profession (or any professional) education!”
“[Core Concepts] helps me appreciate people – their personalities and the reminder that everyone has a story,” a participant explained. “It helps me treat others with kindness and understanding. Everyone is fighting a battle at some point.”
