Jayne's feedback was precisely what I needed to
stay on track and re-affirmed what I already had knowledge of. Also, it built
professional confidence to have gentle redirection when I wasn't quite spot on
and had me open my mind to new ways of thinking.
Up until now, my case coordination was based on my own experiences and my preferred activities for a client’s job search. I favoured the assessments as I had personal experience with them and felt they were quite useful. Now I realize so many variables were never taken into account and this was not fair to the clients. I think one of the main impacts [the Theories and Ethics courses] will have on me is to move toward a much more objective approach with an improved focus on inclusivity.
To be honest, I cannot truly find the words to define the impact this course has had on my work as a career practitioner because I am feeling so elated just knowing I have all this information and [I look forward] to continuing to learn, better understand and practice this knowledge with clients.

Thank you again, Roberta, for the true pleasure of learning. You have a lovely style of teaching and facilitating. I'm grateful for this course and the opportunities to apply it while in class. Now at work I'll have some great ways to offer guidance that will increase my confidence.

Taking this course has definitely reinforced for me why I think that all people working as career development practitioners should take a course on ethics, especially one specific to our field. Ethical practice is fundamental to our work. I feel that my learning objectives were met fully and if I could do one thing differently it would be to have taken this course earlier.

Having worked as a career facilitator for Douglas College for five years work collaboration with case managers has been a constant factor; hence my understanding of case management is of solid nature but not particularly deep. As such, I decided to take the case manager certification to enhance my understanding. I had no idea what to expect from the course and quietly questioned whether it would be worth the while or provide me with any new knowledge. Two days into the course I had my answers – yes this course exceeded my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Course outlines, Course material, Learning Objectives, as well as Feed Back from participants and instructors, were very useful and relevant. I recommend this course to anyone who values continuous learning.

As always, Dr. Diana Abath is an amazing
facilitator, her insights and assertions are valued and inspired me so much.
The Case Manager course is a cutting edge, integrative, inspiring approach to Case Management . . . offering practical and motivational content to help you gain the courage to take charge of your case loads. I strongly recommend the course to anyone seeking a new approach to Case Management.

It’s a real honor and privilege to be on your program, to be taught by you, to read you and to be going into partnership with you Thank you for everything you have done and are doing for the career development profession in Canada and abroad. One of them being designing a very robust and good program that is also open to international students who would otherwise not have accessed such professional development. My people and I thank you and your team

I was initially reluctant to sign up for an on-line course as I prefer a face-to-face interaction in class. I was pleasantly surprised how participation in various topic-focused forums gave me a feeling of connection with other virtual classmates and that I could tap onto wisdom and knowledge of others just as if I would have done it in class. The website was very easy to navigate and all the necessary information and materials were easily accessible. The topics were related to my current job and many times after forums or assignments I was more inspired and motivated to do more and be a better Job Developer!
The Life Strategies team members were effective and provided me with feedback and information on a very timely and efficient manner.
I will definitely recommend you to other Job Developers who didn't have a chance to experience your well-designed course.
