I stumbled upon your site while looking for stuff on forgiveness. I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE your site! It is SO helpful to me and I have found several things that have really touched my heart. For what it’s worth, you ARE changing lives, even without knowing. Thank you for YOU.

Again, you’ve obviously thought through whether to keep a friendship or let it go, Katherine. Your wisdom comes through, as mother, foster mother, professor and therapist. Thank you for sharing so much. Your tips are wise.

… an amazing person and one of those people I wish I had had the opportunity to meet in my lifetime. Between the two of us we’ve got nearly 140 years under our belts. Lots of time to make mistakes and learn from them, and get the hang of some of this stuff. Now if we can just pass on all we know before we run out of time, we might just leave the world a better place than we found it.

As a clinical social worker and author, I can really appreciate Ms. Levine’s perspective on parenting. While I was supervising teens in residential treatment she was inviting foster children into her home. Talk about paying your dues. Her extensive experience is the voice in her wonderful new eBook, When Good Kids Do Bad Things: A Survivor Guide for Parents.”

I am a former student of hers from Columbia and she was one of my favorite professors! I learned so much from her about child resiliency, anger management, and of course finding humor in my very own personal ADD mishaps. I have a smile on my face as I remember her funny stories and the laughter from class like it was yesterday! The truth is that I graduated from CUSSW in 1997 so yes she definitely made an impact as an amazing Professor and Mentor and I thank you for that!”

Katherine was an enthusiastic teacher, an interesting and motivating lecturer, a dedicated consultant and shared freely of her knowledge and time. I am familiar with her work with clients and they reported satisfaction and my observation is that these clients displayed progress in their life course.

Katherine Levine is a dedicated social worker who truly lives the “staying strong” motto she endorses. I have known Katherine for the better part of ten years in her roles at Visiting Nurse Service of New York. She was a tremendous director who listened to her staff and would lend support as needed. Staff always spoke very highly of her supervision with them and the great deal she had helped them develop their skills. I have worked along side Katherine in her her current position and she is stalwart in fighting for much needed services for the clients she represents.
Deirdre De Leo, Program Manager/Mobile Crisis at Visiting Nurse Service of New York
I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Levine for several years. At the Bronx Borough Based Council, Ms. Levine provided leadership to more than 30 mental health and community service providers whose goal was to improve service delivery to children accessing the mental health system. Ms. Levine’s expertise, dedication and vision had a tremendous impact in the lives of many children and their families. At MHA, Ms. Levine developed and implemented numerous workshops and trainings for staff on the family centered strength based model. Ms. Levine is also a popular trainer and has developed her own emotional fitness program. I would highly recommend Ms. Levine’s trainings, workshops and consulting work.

When Good Kids Do Bad Things
I borrowed it from the amazon kindle lending library for several months, I now need to purchase the book. I want to have a copy for reference. She covers all ages and all behavior problems and what to do, what NOT to do!”
