“Rob Bernstein’s approach promotes the kind of change that enhances children because it’s organic and helps them develop from inside rather than from external pressure. What I think is also critical to understand is there is a context for this work: Rob creates a safe space for a child to grow. It’s more than acceptance; he joins the child’s experience and is wholly nonjudgmental. It’s critical to ask ourselves if we’re sending double messages about our attitudes, and if the child has a safe place to take risks and change.” 

- Dr. Marcia Eckerd
