“I want to thank you for your efforts in organizing this wonderful training. It was truly a step or two beyond other "advanced" trainings I have been to!”

“Thank you for all of your work on this training and all of your work creating TIC. The training was fantastic and, for the first time since my intensive in 2004, I actually feel like I'm doing DBT!”

"Shari is an excellent trainer! Very easy to follow, does an excellent job of engaging audience. I felt like I learned a lot and have a plethora of really helpful information to take back to my team."

"Shari is a great teacher and I learn when she demonstrates in role play, it lets me see in action things that I have read about. I learned in a way that I did not experience with [another training organization]. I needed to build on the basics I learned at [another training organization]."

“We were able to bring real life issues we experienced doing DBT to the training and Charlie gave us real life answers in the form of role plays, demonstrations, and collaborative discussions. It was so stimulating on so many levels -- I didn't want it to end. I am excited to see the other TIC offerings and so pleased to have this addition to the DBT training community.”
