Reality Check Evaluation
As an Adjunct Professor of Psychology, I was a bit reluctant to take my classes to a recent presentation of a program by L. Lawton – Reality Check. Having not had the benefit of seeing the presentation before taking my classes of young adults and some teenagers as I was not sure what was being presented or how it would be presented. After seeing the presentation the first time, I became sure that most of my students needed to see Mr. Lawton’s presentation. The best way for me to describe what I saw was that it was REAL.
I have the benefit of 24 years of service in the United States Navy. I then worked for the state of Florida, one of those years was with the Department of Juvenile Justice and the re-entry counselor for Brevard County. I can honestly say that with my background and experience I can without reservation recommend Mr. Lawton’s Reality Check presentation for teachers, administrative personnel and students, high school level or above. While some of the language may be considered a bit crude by some, as a teacher at the college level with dual enrollment students – they can handle the language better than older people. That is something else that is real. Our youth are NOT babies anymore and need to know that someone cares enough to tell the truth. Mr. Lawton does that and gives the attendees the ability to get help they may need – without judgment.
All in all, an excellent presentation.
