I have test anxiety and I usually over think test questions. TDC helped me focus on what was important, gave me great strategies to help me stay confident.
This study program was wonderful! I felt it was very straightforward and helped me to focus on what I needed to study for the exam. It gave me the structure I needed and the confidence in passing the exam and becoming a better therapist. I recommend it to everyone who tells me that they are getting ready to study for the exam and I will continue to do so!
I passed!!! This program was great and very straight forward. On test day, I felt that I was in control of the test, not like the first time I took the MFT CV using Grossman. I used the strategies and stay focused on the questions being asked. The frames were very helpful. I am so thankful for this wonderful study system and have already recommended it to colleagues.
I cannot express how grateful I am to TDC for helping me prepare for this exam. I felt totally confident throughout the whole process, and, (nerd alert) I actually ENJOYED studying and feel like this course made me a better therapist! The exam felt really difficult and I had no idea whether or not I was passing, but having been prepared for that feeling, I was much better able to manage my anxiety during the test and keep moving. I will recommend this program to everyone I know and look forward to using it for the second exam. Thank you!!
I just passed the MFT Clinical Vignette Exam! This study system ROCKS! It totally boosted my confidence. I have some serious test anxiety and the tangible strategies gave me something to hang on to and focus on instead of spiraling into a hot mess of anxiety. I passed both tests the 1st time using this system and I think it is genius. Worth every penny. Trust the system, it works, stay focused and confident and you will pass too! Thank you Amanda and your team. I am so glad I followed the advice of colleagues and purchased your system. Now I can join the ranks of the licensed professionals in my community after years of hard, underpaid work, at last. Moving on up.
I just passed my CV this morning, first time! I could not have done it without TDC. The test taking strategies were vital! Framing the questions really kept me focused and looking for those "X's" saved me a lot of time. I started out with Gerry Grossman for the first exam and felt anxious and overwhelmed. I switched to TDC and everything made sense. I attribute passing the SWE to TDC as well. For the CV I only used TDC and it was all I needed. I will recommend this to anyone studying for their license! Thank you Amanda!
I highly recommend this program! I love the fact Amanda breaks everything down to be small steps and it's very understandable. The other study programs give you big books to study from and it's intimidating to have to read a thick bound book. Instead TDC has
small handouts that were so helpful and you are able to listen to audios how ever much you want. TDC gives you the material you need to know for the test not bombard you with material that isn't going to show up on the test. Thanks so much! On to the next!
TDC was a great support for me. I learned all of the material necessary for the exam, and how to approach studying and taking the test. I felt well-prepared mentally, physically, and emotionally from Amanda's audio lectures, and from the coaching session I had before exam day.
Therapist Development Center was exactly what I needed to prepare for and pass the MFT Standard Exam, the first time! The materials are well-organized and succinct. First, you learn exactly what the test is testing and how to read the questions to find exactly what they're looking for. You are given strategies that increase your confidence tremendously before you even begin to study the materials. With this knowledge, you then re-learn the main pieces of information that are important for the exam. There are outlines to follow the lecture to take notes and the lectures are in small, digestible pieces. You schedule out all the studying before and plan your date so that by the time your date comes, you are ready to pass. I wasn't even nervous the day of because I felt so confident from the study materials. After going to graduate school and practicing as an MFT intern for years, you already know everything you need to know. You don't need to spend hours and hours pouring over the DSM and different books like a zombie... do yourself a favor and use the trusted system of Therapist Development Center because they have everything you need to pass in an organized and cohesive fashion. You just need to remember what you know from your experience as a clinician and arm yourself with the tools to utilize your knowledge for a test. I'm very satisfied and am confident I will pass the 2nd test in the same manner! Thanks!
Thank you all for your guidance through this process! What an incredible resource you are. I do not know why anyone would use another program to study for the boards!
I have incredible anxiety when when it comes to taking exams. The Therapist Development Center was the perfect study system for me. I felt confident and organized. I am so happy that I found this program. There is no way I could have held all the information from the other study systems. Thank you so much!
The Therapist Development Center is the best strategy for passing the Clinical Vignette. The board exam was complicated and linguistically confusing. Using the methods and strategies outlined by this program made it possible to find the important bits of information and eliminate the fodder. I appreciate the personal support that is available and especially my coach Robin. She answered question quickly and was so encouraging. This is a solid current strategy for passing the boards.
I passed both exam on the first attempt! Thanks so much to TDC. Could not have made it without them! The study materials are great! Just what you need to pass both exams. Not too much, not too little. Amanda's voice guided through both exams and kept me going through them. I started studying with another company and felt completely overwhelmed with the amount of information, which was all of it, unnecessary. TDC gave the necessary information and all the indispensable strategies to pass both exams! Thanks so much!!
TDC program helped me tremendously! Gave me the knowledge and the confidence. Thank you to the coaches and Amanda. I would definitely recommend to all my friends.
I highly recommend your program. I went through the program twice over the course of a couple of months. I have colleagues using other test programs who are studying for 5-6 months and come out of the exam stating that they were over saturated with material. I didn't feel that way at all. I have recommended the program to two other interns where I work. I loved the way it was organized, the lectures, the tips. I'm so grateful that I found your program before using any others and I will be using it to begin studying for the CVE in a couple of weeks. Also, I sent an email just to ask how to best study the last few days and was responded to by the next day, had a 5 min. conversation, which is all I needed. I emailed my contact the day before the exam to ask for clarification regarding privilege and she called back within a few hours and left a message. Thanks again!!!
This program was perfectly suited to prepare for the exam and manage a busy case load and family life! The price was right and the preparation great!
TDC, thank you so much for developing this study material! This process has taken me so long and with my first exam I bought so many study materials and they did not help nor do they compare to your system. Your study system provides guidance, encouragement, care, and clear insight on how to approach this type of exam. I definitely listened to your tips and strategies and gained the confidence to attack this beast and I did it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
In thinking about prepping for the exam I started with the "usual suspects" of other programs. I reviewed their sites, pros and cons written about each program, as well as their pass rates. I was overwhelmed with information and uncertain of what specifically I needed; it felt like I was trying to buy a new/used car with all of the different "plans" that were offered and the pricing of each. I finally reached out to someone who referred me to TDC (Therapist Development Center). What a relief! Finally, a program that knew what I needed! I was not overwhelmed; the program was simple to order, concise in its delivery, and precise with what information I would need to know. The format was easy to understand and I appreciated the way concepts and theories were explained. It did not inundate me with extra information or make concepts so complex that it was difficult to understand. I went into the testing center prepared and confident -- I passed the exam the first time I took it! Thank you TDC for making the testing process less daunting, taking the fear and anxiety out of knowing what to study, and providing such user-friendly and informative study prep materials. I am referring EVERYONE I know to you!!
Absolutely fantastic program. I used grossman for the first exam and passed but never felt nearly as confident as I did going into the CVE. I passed on my attempt and I am so excited to be licensed! TDC does a great job at only giving you information you need... And doesn't flood you with learning topics that won't be tested. I was VERY pleased with the program. Thank you TDC!
Thank you Amanda and company! Your materials cover the perfect amount of content, are well-organized, confidence-building, and motivating. I passed both MFT exams on my first attempt, thanks to your material. The money I spent on Grossman's confusing "kitchen sink" approach wasn't a waste - it allowed me to appreciate the true value of your material. For my friends at this licensing stage of their journey, I INSIST that they use your program over the other big ones. Thank you!
