I have just completed the End the Cycle program. This course is a very powerful tool as I begin to transition back to living with my daughters. I have been in my recovery process for over a year and it has been hard to connect with my children because of my guilt and shame. This class has helped empower me to strive for a deeper connection with my kids and I have learned a vast amount of every day tools I have started to execute today. I truly appreciated the hands on exercises which forced me to look inward and offered the perspective to deal with my father/child relationship in a healthy form. My hat goes off to our instructor Colleen she is a real whiz kid and all parents would take something from her dynamic work shop
