When working with people who are mandated to treatment, it becomes essential for us to not only look at the mandate as the reason for treatment, but really go deeper with our clients to truly understand why they are in treatment, who they are, and what they really want.

Whether mandated by the courts, an employer, or even by family members, how do we help our patients and clients feel empowered, committed, and able to engage in treatment no matter what brings them there?

"As always, Dr. Sidor's Socratic approach to learning marries intellect and experience. What stood out is typical of the Sweet Institute's journey to end suffering and that is the patient, articulate, and inspiring delivery of Dr. Sidor's dissemination of knowledge." - AnnMarie, LCSW

"I think that any of the individual seminars in this series is valuable and would be useful to my colleagues, having them in context is much more approachable and useful." - Anne-Elizabeth, LCSW-R

"I would recommend this course because it is helping us to unlock the doors to our unconscious minds in order to remove blocks that's behind our suffering." - Marsha, LMSW
