Course Reviews

Wow, I feel so fortunate to have discovered this introduction to and training of Interpersonal Psychotherapy by Sharon Greene, LCSW. She is an excellent presenter and the study materials are concise and powerful. The case study illustrated perfectly the efficacy of this therapy model for assisting clients to experientially discover, and then change their own patterns for improved relationships and mood in a way that with practice they can take with them into almost any future event. Sharon Greene, LCSW delivers this course with professionalism, experience, caring and clarity. The meaningfulness of connection and secure attachement with self and others that can occur when empowered with the IPT experience and tools to heal mood and relationships, I can see how this model can be life changing.

Very good training.

Great EBP presented. I would definitely recommend and will begin implementing in my practice. Thank you Sharon for sharing your knowledge, experience and the audios of the actual work.

I work in the hospital setting, while IPT is not great for the Emergency Department, I can use some of the interventions and concepts in IPT.

The content was formatted and presented clearly. The handouts were very helpful.

I loved this experience and would love to see more courses like this with actual participants.

Wonderful course very clear and concise!

TDC has been a BIG part of my professional career. I used TDC to pass both my LCSW and LMSW exams, so it was only natural that I check out the offered CEUs. ONE STOP SHOP!!!! Thank you for all that you do for our profession. Kudos to you all!!

I recommend others take advantage of the trainings because the information can be used in clinical settings with the clientele population.

Wonderful course! The course had great material to learn and it was engaging. I enjoyed listening to the audios and they were interactive as well with the program material. Thank you for teaching the course and expanding my knowledge as a LMFT.

The linking of mood and relationships was helpful to me and I think I could apply that to work with teenagers easily. I also am glad to have this approach to depression. Thank you. I enjoyed the course.

Great Job, as usual. Always feel at home with TDC.
