"I really enjoyed the presentation. The speaker was very smooth in her transitions throughout the material, and I was very easily engaged by her speaking." - Kay, LMSW

"I recommended colleagues a few yrs ago and I believe two have used Sweet for CEUs. As usual, I like the use of the chat box. The information itself is useful as we all deal with loss personally and professionally. It was good to be reminded that we have to meet the clients where they're at and not make assumptions based on our own experiences surrounding the loss." - Sunita, LCSW

"It helped me focus on specifically improving my interventions with my patients who have experienced various forms of loss. The presenter had a friendly and welcoming attitude." - William, PhD

"This type of discussion challenges our own established norms to open the door to different perspectives. I continue to evolve and grow as a professional and at a personal level with every session." - Guillermina, LCSW

"I have learned how to become a more healthier person, physically, emotionally, and spiritually since I started attending SWEET. This has helped me tremendously in the work I do with my clients, and in my personal life." - Vilma, LCSW-R

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to attend all the classes in order to get my certificate?
Yes. If you missed a week, you must do the self-study (recorded) class prior to attending the subsequent week. Otherwise, you risk accumulating gaps, which may, in turn, lead to an inability to use the material adequately.

Yes. If you register after this Certificate Course has already started, you must agree to watch all the self-study (recorded) classes before you attend your first live class. Otherwise, you will likely be unable to follow the rest of the Certificate Course, and you will therefore not be able to use the material to properly help others.
