13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
At the beginning of this semester, I was very nervous about taking a writing intensive course due to the fact that I am not very good at writing. However, Trina is a very good instructor, and helped me throughout the semester. I am very grateful for that. Also, whenever I would stop by her office, she would always take time off from what she was doing and talk to me about any concerns I had about a particular assignment. In addition, with this being an online class, I wanted face to face interaction and felt Trina did a wonderful job in acknowledging and understanding my needs. Overall, I am very pleased and grateful that I was able take this course.
Everything was fabulous! Her proctored meetings were great and helped us see each other more than once.
I enjoyed the proctored events.
I liked learning about how women are underestimated. It made me realize that as the only female in my household, I was not about to raise my two sons thinking women are responsible for certain duties in life. I now lead an equal gender household where everyone is responsible for everything as far as cooking, cleaning, and the stereotypical women duties.
CLASS DISCUSSIONS AND BEING ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN V-DAY :)
The proctored activities were fun and helped to connect with the course material. The hands on approach is great.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
NO! The instructor was so responsive, even though this was her first online course.
This was my first on line vlass and as a writing intensive ut was difgicult to keep up without one on onw interaction.
The articles were interesting and opened my eyes to things I would have never known.
NONE
Getting material back in a timely manner would be great so that we may keep up with our grade progress.

I was introduced to new material. Things I have never learned or given thought to. This class was a challenged in many ways. I thoroughly enjoyed this class.
The instructor's experience and passion for the subject matter along with her direct contribution to the cause makes her a perfect instructor! Her attention to detail online was exceptional and when she wasn't clear or made a mistake, she quickly corrected it and apologized! Her humility and concern for students made learning easy. The care taken to encourage students and ensure success was impressive!

28. Other comments:
I felt this was one of the most educational yet easy classes I've taken so far at the community college. Easy in that the Laulima format the instructor chose was simple and intuitive to navigate. Although topics covered areas I had no prior interest or experience in, the multidimentional learning the instructor provided encouraged me to learn the material and become passionate about those issues. The instructor was especially instrumental in encouraging students to make the connections between the academic learning we were receiving and the spiritual/personal growth learning that should occur as well. A FABULOUS EDUCATOR and a true asset to the college and profession of education!

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
This course is great, because it has taught me to open up and just be myself. There were many activities that dealt with writting, dancing, drawing, and etc. I loved the fact that we just learned so much through different types of expressive therapies. This course really improved my thinking and enhanced my ability disclose on personal issues. Trina is a great instructor who takes the time to listen to me and all my classmates personal experiences and our learning outcomes.
I enjoyed how we had to reflect back upon ourselves every week in a journal. I also liked thr final project, and how we got to choose any art form to present with.
I really enjoyed making my partner's mask, decorating my own, and watching our fantasy stories acted out. I was surprised how much I enjoyed what my peers had to share, and how well I got along with everyone.
I really loved this class! I enjoyed the art, the movement, the activities, etc. It was a really different experience and very therapeutic. I learned a lot about myself through the writing and reading that I did, and also about the course material. I learned a lot from the class as well, which is rare in regular classrooms. The mask-making was fantastic, and I'm glad Trina was able to give us class time to define our masks and lend us her materials. It was really helpful to have been in this class at this time in my life, so I think the Universe sent me this class to endure the hardships I was going through this semester. It is a lot of writing, which I understand, since it's a writing intensive class, and the amount was very appropriate. Not too little that we slack off, but not too much that we can't handle it (at least in the nick of time!). This class has really gotten me into psychology and studying these methods and how the humans interact with themselves and among others, IF ONLY UHH HAD THE OPTION TO MINOR IN PSYCHOLOGY AND HAVE MORE CLASSES ABOUT HUMAN BEHAVIOUR AND CARL JUNG AND ETC.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >.<
trina i love u, u are the best teacher i have ever had u have had a huge impact on my life
Everything! This class was just simply amazing! I loved all the movement anthem various ways of expression and just how close everyone gets once the secrets start to unfold. It's simply amazing!
All assignments, lectures and class work helped me to discover more of myself helping be to become a better, more healthy person. Now I will be able to help other more effectively inthe counseling field.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
None. the class is great the way it is.

This class is all kinds of perfect. [:
I didn't really like the journals. That is the only thing because I have a full working schedule after class so I never had time for the journals.

Thank you so much Trina. You're an awesome person.
Trina is a lovely woman, and an intelligent teacher.
Trina is an awesome professor, and taking this class has made me grow a lot. I think I'm moving in a direction where I can lay down a lot of my guilt and regret. I've recommended this class to a friend and a few people who came to my office. I'll always remember Trina and this class.
Mahalo, Trina! I'm glad I didn't get discouraged knowing I would enter a WI class and I'm thankful for everything you and this class has done for my well-being. :D
please teach dance
Wonderful Trina! I absolutely loved this class! That book on flow has got me hooked!
This is one of the most interesting classes I've ever taken, and I feel everyone should participate in a course. Not only did the class improve my writing skills, it also helped me realize what has been hindering me from moving forward in my life.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Learning about women in general and knowing I am not alone.
I liked all the documentaries that we watched, it really put a face to many of the issues that we were studying. The projects were great too!
Ms. Trina is a wonderful and fun going teacher. Her assignments are inspirational and very mind- blowing.
This class should be a requirement! Everything I learned in this class will help me with not only my academics but also in my everyday life! I am so glas I took this class.
The films you showed were great.
I liked the information the instructor provided us with because it helped with our project at the end.
The lectures and reading we did were always very informational; we learned not only about the history of feminism and the seemingly misogynistic practices of societies worldwide, but we also kept track of current events regarding women's issues,. The reflection papers required for each of the films we viewed were good motivation to pay close attention to the material. The essays we had to write were challenging, and took critical thinking and problem solving to complete. Finally, our last project had us take what we learned to the community, engaging us in an action research. Although this class was very difficult, I come away from this class confident that I know much more about activism, women's issues, feminism, and social norms (in terms of gender).
I enjoyed all the writing assignments and course work.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The different subjects covered in the course were raw and highly fascinating. It was an eye opening type of class that brought lots of awareness which i appreciated.
The assignments made me really get into the topics being discussed
i enjoyed classes more than the assignments. lectures were presented well!
Although her assignments were back to back, I did appreciate all the papers that we had to write. I found more connections between the women in my life and myself & I found a new appreciation for all women.
She was an energized, intelligent, outgoing person. I was honored to be in her class. She is so knowledgeable, and kindhearted! I would suggest her to anyone.
All
I really enjoyed taking her class and have learned a lot about myself and my fellow women.
I liked the videos that we watched in Trina's class. They were about women and it made me realize how much women are brought down in today's society. The writing assignments helped me understand myself better because we had to use metaphors, figure out our gender identity, and write an oral history. I had to interview my grandma and found out things I never knew about my family and myself.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
More time in between papers.
possibly a better way to present the assignments....like a timeline?
Give the students an assignment where they have to do community service that makes an impact on the women in our community.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked all the different activities and how it was unique and out there. I also liked how we did something different everyday.
We did alot of projects and hands on work. We had alot of fun and good activites! The papers were difficuts but i still learned alot.
I love the whole course! I thought it was fantastic and am very pleased that I took it.
My favorite parts of the class were the interaction between students with each other and the teacher. Also, the depth of what we learned was striking. There are vast reserves of information, with regard to Trina's course we have been able to tap into the specific thereaputic knowledge of symbolism, color, music/movement and art therapy. Through embracing these unique therapies, and the use of these techniques in the field; our feelings towards ourselves and others are transformed.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
not so hard homework.
Nope. It is great just the way it it. :)
More outdoor practice. I feel it is benifical to the student/teacher, as well as patient/therapist.
15. I gained a better understanding of myself through this course.

18. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
having kids and growing up.
the thing i learned and about the papers i wrote. and the professer.
How much it changed my and how many of the techniques that I learned that I will still be using.
Trina's energy. She is a great teacher and therapist. I wish I could take this course again. Also, I won't be missing my class because we are all friends outside of school.
19. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
I got a lot of things from this class. I developed an understanding for not only me but other people, mostly girls.
Yes they did alot. i Learned alot about my self
I learned more about different forms of therapy, and learned more about myself as well. I think the personal growth that I did will benifit me whole life long.
This course will benificial in my own life, with emphasis on my own therapeutic well being. As far as with a career, this course helped me realize there are more areas of study involved in psychology, and has broadened my interest in this career field.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
The hands on assignments given to class, and the sharing of the knowledge our instructor had on the different techniques in psychology, and the history of psychology.
I liked that this class was a safe environment to talk about our problems, past, and future. I didn't think that by taking this class it would have such an impact on my mind, soul and outlook on life. Some of the activities we did were a bit weird when we first did it but made more sense when everything was tied together at the ending of class. I have learned different ways to express myself and different ways for communication. The activities we did I will always remember.
Very thorough and effective
I loved it!!!! You really helped us to reach in and dig out all the dirt, in a very loving non agressive way. We felt safe and encourgaed.
I didn't think I'd adjust to this course,but from the first day I was hooked. I always look forward to going to class, and I don't want it end. Trina is an excellent Professor, and I just wish she would be here for next semester. Sure gonna miss her.
The theraputic and life changing practices which increased my emotional health to a more functioning manner.

Trina thank you for all you have done for me in class I really enjoyed your experties and knowledge you shared with me. I learned different techniques to use. Bev
I didn't think a class could bring out so much emotions that I forgot I had. There are many life lessons and insightful knowledge I gained by taking this class that I will never forget. No two classes were alike which made it fun and entertaining to be in. I liked our group discussions it helped me to learn from everyone else and hear their stories and feelings they went through. We entered the class as individuals and we are leaving as a family. I will truly miss being in this class and the wonderful people in it. This class tested my strength and ability to express myself in ways I didn't think possible. I conquered lots of fears and overcome lots of anxiety through this class. I learned more in this class about myself then I will in any other class.
Trina Nahm-Mijo is an outstanding Professor!
Trina, your wonderful, keep at it!
This class was amazing, helping many students I believe make healthy life changes that we will never forget.
