Comments from Participants in Lorraine’s communication workshops and classes:
My son and I enjoyed the meeting. It provided me with some good information on how to help him succeed. We both enjoyed your guest speaker. Lorraine was awesome. We both left the meeting with positive thoughts and a new plan. I highly recommend that you bring her back for future meetings. It was time well spent. –parent at high school presentation

In her “Healing the Workplace” class taught through Sonoma State University’s Conflict Resolution program, Asst. Professor Lorraine Segal offers students a creative, eclectic, and practical assortment of tools that can foster healthy working relationships and healthy workplace systems.
Lorraine uses a variety of techniques—clear presentations, provocative online videos, and small group work—and provides an excellent collection of readings, some short and others longer and more challenging. I especially appreciated the integration of the theoretical and the practical and Lorraine’s generous support, making herself available via phone and email when we had questions about our work. A great class.”
