"This was such a terrific overview of the important points of clinical skills. I did not get this in my previous employment during supervision. I would recommend this to everyone, particularly new clinicians. (It could be part of the onboarding process for outpatient mental health clinics. It would save a lot of time and money in the long run."

- Michelle, LMSW

"Too often in the workplace, Clinical Supervisors are doing Data Analysis for Administration; thus, "True On-going Clinical Supervision" is not occurring making this type of seminar even more important to recommend. "

-Cheryl, LCSW-R
