What Attendees are Saying about the Pathways Decoding Sessions:

For me, understanding the behaviour was a learning curve. I didn’t realize that there was an underlying cause for the behaviour we were seeing. We do “decoding” now, something we never knew. Thank you for this.

ALL BEHAVIOUR HAS MEANING! I will never forget that. They are acting out for a reason and I have to find the need that it is trying to meet. I learned so much.

This has been really helpful in decoding the behaviours we see. In the midst of meltdowns, I can keep myself calm and I see progress.

Wonderful trainers – very supportive and knowledgeable. I enjoyed their sessions and teaching styles. Thank you!

I have learned so much through this workshop! I am working hard each day, making progress in decoding our children and figuring out how to make changes in all of our lives using these techniques to watch and figure out why they are feeling this way and how to effectively help in a better manner.

I think it is great to reconnect and refresh. I found it very helpful and enjoyed the time. Your pathways program was so helpful to me right from the start. Great idea and so thankful that you are teaching us all about how to deal with our traumatized children.
