Dear Dave,
I want to add my deepest gratitude to Julie’s thanks to you for a most informative and stimulating presentation at the March NYC-DR Roundtable Breakfast sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution of Greater New York and the City University of New York Dispute Resolution Consortium at John Jay College.  We all truly appreciated your very thoughtful remarks on how to better understand and manage anger. The audience was thoroughly engaged and better informed about the intricacies of handling anger.

Over the years, as a colleague at John Jay College, I have seen your work evolve, flourish, and deepen.  Your passion and enthusiasm for your work are unsurpassed.  I know I speak for all who attended last week’s Breakfast, MANY thanks for a wonderful presentation.
