Karla Porter, Trainer | ARC of Luzerne County
Jen recently visited The Arc of Luzerne County TRACE program for a session on dealing with harassment and difficult people. These are students who all have histories of being bullied from childhood into adult life. Jen provided practical yet powerful techniques for diffusing hostile situations using many examples and stories they could relate to. Students immediately opened up to Jen through her patient and compassionate approach mixed with a healthy dose of humor. The students all agreed that they now feel more empowered with a new perspective and verbal tools to disempower a bullying individual through the techniques Jen taught them. We now have 18 future additions to the workforce more prepared to enter it after our session with he

Great class!!! I love the way you organized, created videos, and put it together. I have learned a lot from your course and broadened in my abilities. I would love the chance to work with organizations and put all of this to use
Ann Burke, Clinical Manager, Children’s Outpatient Mental Health | Manatee Glens
Jen Hancock did a training for my staff on bullying using a book she has published called The Bully Vaccine. It was very informative and many of my staff bought a book so they could use the techniques in therapy. I would highly recommend that schools and other community organizations take advantage of this training.
Torben Riise, Owner | ExecuTeam, Inc
I have had the pleasure of being in the audience at several occasions when Jennifer Hancock has given presentations. She is a dynamic speaker whose passion for her subjects and knack for connecting the dots in complex matters captivates her listeners. One walks away from such events a good deal better informed and always inspired.
Dan Dowd, Manager | Master the Possibilities
Her presentation was very professional, interesting and insightful. Her knowledge of Humanism is extensive. Perhaps most important were her thoughtful answers to a variety of audience questions. I would highly recommend her as a speaker for any group that wants to learn about and discuss Humanism.
Doug Worthington, Speaker Coordinator | UU Fellowship of Marion County
I've recruited hundreds of speakers for our Unitarian fellowship over the years. I was utterly delighted with Jen Hancock’s recent presentation. She is a superb public speaker. She is natural, warm, and humorous. She gives a nice overview and makes her points well. She is probably the best guest speaker we have heard in the last year or two.
Ralph Isler, President | Rationalists of East Tennessee
Thank you for one of the most dynamic and thought-provoking talks that we have had at the Rationalists of East Tennessee. A member nudged me halfway through your presentation to offer the opinion that you were the best speaker we have ever hosted. The positive humanist view of life and happiness is a message that should be heard by everyone in these contentious times, and you are a great ambassador at spreading the word.

Can Anything Really Be Done About Workplace Bullies?
Most people assume that bullies are just something you have to put up with. But is that even true? In this session we will discuss what behavioral psychology tells us about not just why bullying occurs, but what it takes to actually get it to stop.
The Power of What If
What if you could harness the power of your imagination while staying firmly grounded in reality? Imagine what you could accomplish!
Why is change so hard?
Before we can embrace change, we first have to unlearn our old ways of doing things. This 1 hour course will teach you how to utilize behavioral psychology techniques to help overcome resistance to change in yourself and in others.
Living Made Simpler
Life isn't easy. It is filled with challenges. How we navigate those challenges determines our success in life. If you want to learn more about how to be happy and how to think more effectively about the choices you make, this program will help.
Finding Work/Life Balance
Responsibility can be overwhelming. Most of us feel we would be happier if we could be less responsible. The problem is, it is only when we are responsible that we feel like we are doing what we should be doing. The problem we haven't isn't that we are too responsible, it is that we aren't responsibly balancing our responsibilities. Learn how to take control of your life in this program.
