"Liz provides an innovative framework for a seemingly basic concept -- promoting caring environments to reduce the negative impact of trauma exposure. This is a powerfully relevant message for any organization committed to health, healing, and well-being. Liz models the information with warmth, compassion, and clarity. I heartily recommend Liz Covey's trainings as an apt and meaningful investment for your organization."
