Here's what attendees have been saying about SWEET seminars:
"It was like putting my DBT training through a filter and coming out with a cohesive and usable outline for my solo-private practice. Very helpful, excellent! I share your excitement around DBT, Dr. Sidor. I honestly feel like there should be a public health initiative to include in school curriculum for ALL." - Alisa, LCSW-R
"I love how clinical interventions are woven into this training. A great facilitator that maintains attention, drives productive conversation, and goes well beyond course material to ensure full comprehension, as well as application to today’s pandemic/other current events." - Chelsea, LCSW
"I learned that DBT is an examination process for all or nothing thinking. Your thoughts can be scanned and the unhelpful thoughts can be identified. Mindfulness worked well for me. The facilitator is very passionate about teaching the tools of DBT." - Teresa, LMSW
"Clear description of the elements of what makes DBT work so effectively. Your style of teaching fits my style of learning. I love your institute's dedication, concern, and care." - Cheryl, LCSW
