The success of Dr. Shari’s Cognitive Therapy Programs come from her ability to teach these techniques to professionals in the field. She has trained hundreds of teachers, educators, social workers, health professionals, government workers, students and many others around the World who then apply these techniques with disadvantaged children and their families. These programs tackle current problems including poverty and immigration.
