Feedback received from people who have attended this workshop indicated they found it very useful and that it aids them to think in another way.

The workshop is not designed to aid with individual problem solving but aimed generically to support anyone in making real life decisions. The expectation is that participants will experience the work and will choose what will be helpful in their own situations and have the supports to do so.
