Interview with Author Landy Anderson

Participant Feedback

Take your workshop to other agencies so more workers get this information

Workers need to take this course!

The whole presentation was very informative and relevant in all areas

Absolutely everything taught was helpful

Could not have been done any better!

You have a good grasp on what we’re experiencing

Landy’s honesty, her history/experience, and her delivery was excellent

She shoots from the hip with conviction!

Excellent material, well packaged, excellent speaker

Landy, God bless you…. foster parents need your book!

Excellent balance of fostering family and worker perspective

This is the best presentation I have seen on this subject

It’s good to see someone on the inside advocating for the foster parents and strengthening our community

Excellent balance of fostering family and worker perspective

You walk the talk!

I love your insight into your understanding of the dynamics between workers/agency and foster parents

The fact that Landy has experience from all areas lets her put things in perspective

Repeat this training to ALL agencies and workers

I liked learning different ways to deal with the agency

Landy reminded me how to function as a foster parent effectively and protect my own biological children

This course is very effective and should be available to all agencies for foster parents and staff

I wish we had more time

You kept it "real" to what really matters, the children. Your high energy was contagious! Hope you get to the Kivalliq Region in Nunavut

Good to hear the overviews and how they are the same province to province

The open and flexible delivery of the information kept my attention and I appreciated the relevant examples
