A different perspective that was powerful!

I really enjoyed the training in which the instructor represented individuals with developmental disabilities. There were many experiences that I related to and it is important to address these actions that stem from "social norms" that are harmful against individuals we work with. I appreciated the real life stories that aligned with the skills that were taught throughout the videos. I am grateful to have had this perspective utilized in an educational training because it is necessary to understand these experiences and how we can better ourselves as providers and as people.

The instructor is informative and interesting. He is very relatable, mentioning that we may not intentionally devalue a client, but to be aware of words, actions, clothing, etc. that can cause us to unintentionally devalue others. He gives specific examples from his own experiences. I have enjoyed the two classes that I have taken with him as the instructor. He has a good presence on the video. He keeps it lively. Good eye contact and expressiveness.
