Here’s what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:

“I enjoyed the use of clinical experiences to reinforce the concepts discussed. Thank you for a great seminar.” – Tracey, PhD

“The level of advocacy stood out for me. Many times, especially with mandated clients, clinicians tend to focus on what the system wants and not what the clients need and what’s available to them. You are teaching clinicians that it is alright to reason with judges, the system as a whole, if they really want to help their clients. I just love it. Thank you. I’ve been applying all the teaching tools from SWEET and I’m experiencing, enjoying life in a totally different way than ever before.” – Mimose, LCSW-R

“It was great! The question sets and concept explanations were so useful! Thank you. We appreciate your trainings!” – Hae Li, LMSW
