"This was a great GPS. Dr. Silverman provided me with many techniques I will be able to put to use immediately. I especially liked the tools to empowerment: strength recognition, strength finding, vision, challenging and championing/character connecting.
The other piece that I will take away from tonight's presentation is "I am ... Name it, Claim it and Control it."
I learned it's OK to go back and admit past mistakes. These will be some of the strategies that I will use to move forward for my daughter and myself. This talk has allowed me to see "around the corner" and I now feel I have the tools to empower my daughter to set goals and discover her strengths."
