We have trained over 5000 people in all kinds of settings and all kinds of trainings, from short one-hour introductions to 2-day intensives all over the State. We have done trainings for WVU, Marshall U, WV School of Osteopathic Medicine, WV Supreme Court, US Justice, the United Way, DHHR, and the WV Council of Churches, to name a few.
