Teaching in excess of 900 undergraduate students each year, she is passionate about the value that immersive mental health simulation can bring to student’s learning and clinical skills, and the way that it can safely bring to life theoretical concepts related to mental health care.

Great realistic, honest presentation about the issues created when working with a narcissistic staff member, and some positive constructive things you can do about it. I wish I had known some of these strategies about 12 years ago! Very good lecture.
