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

"I learned a limited amount of Spanish form living with or near Spanish speakers but have no experience with grammar or the written language. This allow me to expand my vocabulary knowledge of the written language all at once." - Rena, LMSW

"I would recommend this to my colleagues who do not already provide therapy in Spanish." - Emma, LMSW

"It provided a comprehensive understanding of how to question individuals that are Spanish speaking and also helped you learn the language as well as understand how to assess for social determinants for Hispanic individuals." - Becky, LCSW
