"Dr. Kress was both very personable, down to earth and communicated clearly. She presented an excellent, helpful workshop and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning more about self-injury."

"The presentation was well organized, informative, helpful, and encouraging."

"Practical, hands-on, engaging format."

"Dr. Kress is very knowledgeable and experienced. She presented a wealth of information. I wish we would have had more time with her."

"Dr. Kress instilled hope. In fact, I understand that there were a few of our high school students that approached her and asked for help for the first time."
