Great Relationship Seminar Today

Today's seminar, A New Perspective in Dealing with the Challenging Behaviors of Chidlren and Adolescents, at MCC was absolutely first-class. Eric Guy, M.S.W., L.S.W., from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, addressed a group of parents and clinicians from 8:00-4:00PM and provided a wide amount of information to help the audience understand and interact with their children and clients who are affected by behavioral and emotional disturbances.

Eric is the type of speaker you want in front of an audience. All day he spoke from the front of the stage, only occasionally retreating to the podium to cue a video clip for projection onto the large screen. Eric didn't "lecture" - he spoke from his heart with valuable information and personal stories.
