"Very laid back approach to a VERY volatile subject, especially now during the Pandemic, election of 2020, BLM movement, militias, protests, propaganda. Good way to check ourselves and how are we contributing to the chaos and how we can tone it down." Linda

"Strategies for Creating a Culturally-Inclusive Mindset was one of the best courses that I have taken on occupationaltherapy.com. I found the acronym LOVE helpful with remembering ways to have a culturally-inclusive mindset. I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 learning activities that make the course more interactive, as well as insightful for my own implicit biases. I can't wait to take the implicit bias association test and look more into the Harvard Implicit study. I am certainly looking forward to additional classes offered by Ms. Clervaud." Sheri
