"This was my second experience this year of training by Freedom from Torture. Again, it felt both safe and exciting: a fascinating subject, where a great deal of information had to be disseminated in a short time, and a large number of participants required skilful facilitation by the two course leaders, Robin Ewart-Biggs and Sarah Tucker. All of this was delivered. I felt both stimulated by the breadth and depth of the wide range of issues covered, and securely contained by the wisdom and experience of Sarah and Robin, enabling me to participate as fully as possible."

"I will continue to draw on the very impressive range of topics we covered in this training and, best of all, it was a really marvellous, inspiring day where I met people I knew and people I didn't know, and felt comfortable with both."

"I gained a better appreciation of the difficult circumstances facing asylum seekers and refugees, and how these might influence my style of working."

"It was very good: multiplicity of voices from the front; space for questions; conductors were approachable and helpful."

"Enlightening, informative and enjoyable. It has provided me with useful techniques to put into practice."

"Courses like this are long overdue and much needed."
