This page will contain information regarding the objectives of, and bibliography for, each of the Workshops/Trainings I offer. Currently this page contains that information only for my workshop Don't Take the Bait: Working with Reluctant Clients. But please return to this page again soon because, as soon as I find the time to do so, I will post documents containing the objectives and bibliographies for my other workshops as well. Thank you for your patience!
