What people are saying:
I had a lot of reservations about signing up for my first online course, but by the end of the Session One those reservations completely evaporated. By the end of Session Three, based on what I had learned, I was able to devise some worksheets for a client to complete. I am not sure if it was he or I who was more surprised at the revelations which came forth...
I haven't been this excited about learning in a long time.

I was quite impressed how much information one can learn through on-line courses, especially an adult learner who is busy with other things. The course was very thorough and well-
planned. Each time I wrote an assignment with sweat on my brow from thinking, the next chapter clarified and added to the very same topic, making the assignment more whole and giving me a sense that I had answered correctly in my last assignment. Very clever way to make me do my own thinking and then give me the confirmation that I got it right. Dr. Rambeck was clear and pleasant to listen to.
