    Excellent training

    The training was excellent and a really good learning experience. The modules were discussed in-depth and I was able to gain a comprehensive understanding of how to counsel children and adolescents. Although the subject matter was complex, the video training was easy to understand. I learned more through this course than I have even on the job.
