What They Say
about Dr. Crenshaw's Presentations and Workshops
"Dr. David Crenshaw is a master clinician who has the
ability to combine both theory and clinical application in his
work with seriously at-risk youth. In his workshops he draws the
participants into the cases through his unusual capacity to make
his cases come alive. Dr. Crenshaw has many years experience
working with very troubled youngsters. He has a wealth of
information to teach and share and participants in his workshops
always come away with enhanced understanding and new commitment
to working with needy and troubled children." Nancy Boyd
Webb, DSW, BCD, RPT-S, Distinguished Professor and James R.

captivated from start to finish. He is a presenter with much to
tell!!" Lois Carey, LCSW, RPT-S, Past President, New York
Association for Play Therapy.
