  1. That was a brilliant and informative interview with Maggie Sibley. I am very interested in the STAND approach – any thoughts about how one could go about using this approach in practice?

      Thanks for listening and reaching out, Glynis! I’m not an expert in the STAND approach, but my impression is that Maggie’s book (linked in the show notes) is basically a manual for implementing the approach in practice. I would check out her book!
