Reviews
The best, yet new for me, approach to anger and bullying I have ever heard. Of all the Cross Country Education workshops this was by far the best one!
Marva Robinson, Psychologist
St. Louis, MO


I learned very much. Have many clients who are working on anger and the traditional approach is slow and has minimal results thus far. Looking forward to trying this technique. This is the fourth seminar I've attended put on by Cross Country and this was, by far, the best.
Sean Mayo, Counselor
St. Paul, MN


This seminar was well presented and extremely informative as well as fun and practical. I will use everything I have learned in my life as well as in my practice. Best seminar I ever attended. I loved the role-plays. Invaluable learning tool!
Christine Eddy, Counselor
Syracuse, NY


Woody Allen and Albert Ellis all in one...practical, real, useful, and fun!
Sharon Evans, Psychologist/Counselor
Tallahassee, FL


One of, if not the best, seminar I have attended. Absolutely great!
Soledad Dinis, Social Worker/Counselor
Worcester, MA


This was the best CEU seminar in my career. What a powerful and pertinent tool to treating anger and relationships.
