"I have become empathetic to my daughter; we now have a better relationship."

"The discussion concerning reflective listening was exceptional. Understanding the needs of someone in psychiatric distress and just what they are trying to say is so important to enhance the relationship between caregivers and the ill."

"I have increased my appreciation of the problems and ways to tackle them."

"I experienced an AHA! moment weekly. The timing of the class was perfect. We needed everything we learned."

"Teachers were experienced, well-trained, and extremely helpful."

"I am working on being more compassionate and empathetic. We are learning to accept our daughter’s disease and see the individual for herself, not the disease."
