Each year, the program is delivered hundreds of times to tens of thousands of students on campuses all over the North America.

Review: “Thank you for your excellent program”


After your presentation in March of this year, our 13 year old daughter (who deals with GAD and ADD in addition to being a teenager) reported an incident that she had been hiding from us for nearly a year. A 14 year old boy had used coercion to force her into a 2 second ‘experiment’ with the threat that he would tell everyone she was a slut and did ________ anyway. She held this inside from early July until a few days after your presentation, when she filed a report with the school counselor.

Needless to say, there were multiple incidents during the time she held the information in: he told everyone lies about her anyway, created an enormous amount of turmoil and so forth, resulting in GAD accelerating into RX treated depression. While the results of her disclosure required involvement of the police and child welfare, which frightened us all, including her parents – she has rebounded phenomenally well. The perp has been transferred, I hope to an all boys’ school. Her remark to us after we met with the child welfare people – ‘I know you hate me now.’ With that thought in her mind, she still had the courage to go on record and to seek help that your program recommends. Of course we let her know that Hate ain’t in the picture. Thank you for your excellent program. Thanks again!

Review: “We think you really got the point across to all of us…”


We are 7th graders at ___________ (erased name for confidentiality reasons) Middle School. You came to our school and talked to us. We think you really got the point across to all of us and we really appreciated it. We think that some of the kids finally understood that what they were doing was wrong. We just wanted to say thanks again.

Review: “I believe that the message is solid, valuable, and delivered in a professional, caring manner.”


With this subject matter it would be easy for the students to dismiss Mike’s presentation. However, Mike put the students in the position to respond to his inquiries and actions. Therefore, his message carried the credibility of the endorsement of the peer group. (example: the girls let the boys know that Mike was right). I think that the students were most impacted by the realization that they may have done something offensive to someone that they care about. Kids are so insecure when it comes to personal relationships. I am in the process of sharing the literature with the seven districts in Licking county. I believe that the message is solid, valuable, and delivered in a professional, caring manner.

Review: “Thank you because you connected so easily and comfortably with our students…”


As the excitement of this week’s successful series of 12 presentations turns into the sheer joy of having made such a large impact on the fabric of our children’s lives, we want to say, ‘THANK YOU’! Thank you because you connected so easily and comfortably with our students, and thank you because you also connected with their parents and with many other adults in our community.
