  1. I participated in the training and then took the quiz. I only took the quiz one time, but received a message stating that I had exceeded the number of times I could take the quiz. Will I receive CRC continuing ed for this?

  5. I was very impressed with this presentation. I. I especially liked the concrete examples that were provided. It really surprised me when it was revealed how much little time off professionals take. I am most certainly agree that time off oftentimes recharges someone’s spirit.

    I am going to employ the examples given in the presentation to help me improve my own self-care skills. Like you both said, some of these can be done in a minimal amount of time

    On another note, I know that you want the evaluation filled out for CRC credit. Could you let me know how to access the evaluation? Again, thank you for such a valuable presentation. I appreciated it.
