"I found Dr. Emmons' presentations especially calming, intriguing, and applicable. I can wholeheartedly say that I enjoyed every minute of this training."
"I find Dr. Emmons' presentations validating and empowering of the work I do. The words he uses to explain what I do help me and my work with others (e.g. energy-depleting thoughts rather than negative thought patterns)."
