Reviews

I've attended several of Bob's workshops. Not only is he extremely skilled and knowledgeable, he puts the fun back into learning. One remains engaged and captivated while learning useful and relevant information.
Phyllis Savides, LCSW


I very much enjoyed going to Mr Taibbi's workshop. It was useful—packing in tons of practical and thought-provoking information—and fun. He seems to enjoy what he does, and I would love to go back to see him again.
Lewis Weber, PhD


Mr. Taibbi is an excellent presenter. He is able to offer practical ideas and techniques within a multi-disciplinary framework. I left his workshop with new ideas to try with my clients.

Mr. Taibbi's training workshop was fantastic! I can honestly say it was one of the best workshops I have attended in a long time. Mr. Taibbi has an excellent rapport with his audience. He blends his many years of clinical experience with an approach that is both compassionate and practical. I left his workshop inspired to try some of his techniques with my clients.
