Feedback from Workshops
It was very interactive, requiring all participants to voice an opinion. Nice to hear different viewpoints and perspectives from people heading towards the same goal.
Honestly speaking I was not expecting very much from the workshop. I expected to walk away from with the same message that i receive at every workshop, 'that is is very difficult to get into clinical psych'. But, this workshop was tremendously supportive, it gave a new perspective to applying and it was encouraging.
Very down to earth facilitator. The session was challenging but encouraging. Being told that we should believe in ourselves was refreshing.
The presenter was very engaging, and had solid rationales for what she was saying.
It was excellently well planned, structured and delivered. It was also collaborative allowing plenty of room for questions and discussion.
The trainer was very positive and engaging. I liked that the trainer have lots of examples of how to reflect.
I enjoyed the structure of the seminar. There was a good balance between presenting and discussion. The clinical psychologist herself was really encouraging and motivating.
