Diversity trainings can be fraught with stress and distress for participants. This article highlights selected issues involved with workforce-diversity training and then describes a Choice Theory based diversity training, called "Train Bound for Needs," developed by the first author. Evaluation results from one "Train Bound for Needs" training in the southern United States of America are presented, and suggest that using this Choice Theory based approach may have helped buffer participants from distress. Research is needed to further explore the use of Choice Theory in such trainings.
