Excellent, engaging, knowledgeable speaker, clear, etc. Maybe spending less time on the checklists to prepare and more. I would have liked to see examples of therapy (videos), more time on actual therapy and therapy ideas, small group breakout session so that we could discuss our experiences and help each other out, networking with other teletherapists. Liked the platform used, very clear presentation, excellent, thank you
The program was very detailed and discussed scenarios that we may come across in the field. I did not observe any weaknesses in the program. Any questions I had before the program were answered. I really appreciate the work that was put into this program to better prepare us when providing services during virtual sessions.
