Photo Policy

Due to the sensitive nature of the instructors' current and previous work, as well as the sensitivity of these training sessions, we do not allow photography or video recording at live training events. Because the instructors do not publish any personal details online, we ask attendees to refrain from posting any class details to social media websites during the training events.
