Dr. Ivy’s training was rated by our staff the highest out of all the training which we have done in 2019.  Dr. Ivy addresses the effect of trauma in the environment upon a child’s ability to learn. Through exercises of application, she tailored specifically to our inner city audience. Our teachers walked away with an understanding of their students and practical ideas for immediate application in their classrooms. MG, Texas
