Like emergency responders, you also need to know how to keep yourself safe and effective while helping your clients through a down point in life. Martin helps you gain a new awareness and appreciation for the strength of the human spirit and learn how to develop extraordinary lifelong client relationships. Learn how you can easily help your clients through a down point in life, while keeping yourself strong, resilient and crisis-ready. <br> <br> <a href="https://rz.mdrt.org/search/?q=2018ampro"><center><hr><font color="darkred" size="3"><b>Click here to find more from the 2018 Annual Meeting</b></font><hr>
