AAMFT-HI Spring Insitute
A Special Mahalo for Carl Greenberg and his 6 hour presentation, Working Through Ethical Dilemmas, at our 1st Spring Institute.  Attendees participated in round table discussions on ethical topics like defining important words like Ethics, Integrity, and Morality.  Lunch was a wonderful networking opportunity, bringing together members from Oahu, Maui and the Big Island.  Our afternoon discussion had us collaborating on a specific case and listening to the various points of views of the different groups.  Carl had us thinking!  What a great workshop.  We are fortunate that our 1st Annual Spring Institute had such a knowledgable and interesting speaker!
Some comments from the attendees included:
Really appreciate the training, the food, the venue and speaker!
Excellent!  Good interaction and faciliation.
Wonderfully interactive!  Loved being able to bond over lunch.
Very Professional and Helpful.
Very informative and a good refresher.  Good topic to have often.
