Comments from previous course participant about the model presented in this workshop:

“… it appears to be pulling together, in an orderly and structured fashion, the “anecdotal” soup that has been floating around in my head for some years.  The clarity around stress and particularly the concept of “smart brain/dumb brain” is absolute brilliance and explains so much of what has been my working life”. (a N.Z. Veterinarian)

A comment from a lecturer who has used one of Angela’s videos with her class.  “…My colleague H…was ‘blown away’ by your presentation on stress and the mind. He’s heard some of that information from other sources, but never so well collated and exemplified. He said it should be a TED talk. He (and I) are deeply grateful for you letting us hear the talk.”
