“Both the content of Dr. Becker-Phelps’s talk and the compassion and intelligence with which she presented it demonstrated her keen sensitivity to the audience and her mastery of the topic… Dr. Becker-Phelps’s delivery of her talk, as well as her responses during the subsequent audience Q & A session, were a perfect blend of professional gravitas and clinical knowledge, with needed dashes of warmth and humor.”

“Early sign-ups for Dr. Becker-Phelps’s presentation on self-bullying were the strongest of our series, by far. And she didn’t disappoint, delivering a presentation that was warm, engaging, and keenly perceptive. Her energetic speaking style and humor were a wonderful balance to this serious topic. Most important, the audience was able to embrace her discussion of self-compassion as an effective strategy in standing up to their self-bullying, advancing their personal growth on the job – and outside the workplace.”
