Kim uses adult learning principles with great effect and she’s really approachable and tuned into trauma informed care. When Kim’s doing the training you know the content will be well researched and as a learner you’ll have opportunities to explore your own understanding of the topic and its relevance to you and how you can build on it if you you’ve identified some gaps, including confidence and know-how applying new techniques and concepts in your work area.
