Thoroughly enjoyed this training! Informative and hugely beneficial to my practice. I feel I have gained a better insight into my service users and will explore ways to change my approach using the knowledge and understanding from this training. I feel I can adapt and improve the service provision to meet the needs of service users, and feel I am now equipped to better support service users especially those who present on the Self-differentiation/Self-Presentation levels when before I felt stumped with how to engage them.Occupational Therapist
