I would recommend TDC over any other test prep company. I attended another testing center's orientation meeting and felt extremely overwhelmed. TDC offered bite sized chunks of the necessary information to review. Her strength based approach allowed me to feel confident in what I already knew. Thank you TDC for helping me to stay focused, present, and confident on test day!
I am not sure if I can match "the drama of the win" after my MFT Standard testimonial. I am so grateful for your program, not just because I just passed the CV Exm (quite comfortably) but I really understood a lot of the things that I didn't really "get" in Grad school and am a better therapist all around. This sysyem is well organized, fun, and takes the stress and fear out of these exams! I haven't shut up about your system since I switched over from Grossman suring the Summer. I never would have passed the CV exam without your clear, calming guidance!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I passed both exams on the first try and I didn't study anywhere else. 100% confident to recommend this to EVERYONE! Thank you!
Thank you TDC. I did pass the SWE and CVE using TDC on my first try. I was using AATBS up until two weeks before my SWE and felt completely unprepared. I purchased TDC and plowed through the SWE prep in two weeks (I would recommend just starting with this program instead :). I have never been a good test taker and TDC allowed me to feel some confidence going into the tests. I like that it taught me only what I need to know and emphasized test taking strategies. I feel like a salesperson now whenever anyone asks for guidance on prep programs because I become excited stressing how awesome this program is!!!!! I don't think I would have made it the first time without it! Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
Thank you so much for your study system. It has been great studying with you. When I had a question I received a response promptly. I tell everyone I meet in the field how great this program is. I will miss studying and learning with you. I wish you and your team the best!!
After missing the California MFT CV exam by one point several times, I was not feeling confident in my abilities to pass this test. This program taught me strategies that were practical and easy to apply. During my prep for the exam, my question via e-mail was answered very quickly an efficiently as well as a phone call returned within hours when I began to panic 2 days prior to the exam. Thank you!
I attempted two series of the GG CV classes, which only exacerbated by anxiety. When I started this program, I couldn't imagine that I would be ready in five weeks, much less three. I followed every detail, and was indeed ready in three and just PASSED!!!! I highly recommend this awesome study system for its comprehensiveness and simplicity.
I am thrilled to report I passed the MFT clinical vignette exam today! I used the TDC strategies and it definitely made it so much easier to stay present and eliminate the wrong answers. I have been endorsing your course to my friends who are getting ready to take the exam.
The Therapist Development Center is awesome!!! I used the TDC study program for both the Standard Written and Clinical Vignette exams, and I passed both on my first try. The program does a great job of demystifying the intent and content of both exams. The study material is very thoughtfully chosen to reflect what both exams actually test. Both programs are clearly and logically structured in a way that was easy to follow and that helped me stay organized. This structure also helped me to feel less anxious about the exams and therefore allowed me to focus my attention more keenly. Additionally, I felt supported by the overall strength-based tone of the program. A significant aspect of the TDC study material for me was the emphasis placed on staying present, reasoning skills, optimal study-habits, and reliable test-taking strategies. I also want to mention how accessible and helpful the tutors were. I feel big gratitude for the prompt and constructive follow-up from both Asya and Robin in response to the handful of questions I submitted throughout the study process, and for the excellent guidance I received from Asya in a phone coaching/check-in I had with her before taking the first exam. Overall, the TDC program helped me immensely in learning how to orient myself to both exams, and I felt prepared and confident on both days when walking through the doors of the test center to take each of the exams. For those of you who are considering whether or not to purchase additional study material, I do not recommend it. While I was studying with the TDC program for the first exam, I purchased a test bank from another company because I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything important. However, I felt completely confused and derailed by the other company's material, and once I refocused my energy on the TDC study material I felt much more grounded. Having now gone through the experience of taking the exams, I can assure you, no other study material is necessary to pass either of them! I so appreciate the TDC study program for helping me to cross this threshold. Many thanks to the whole TDC team!
The strategies from this program were great while I was taking the test. Thanks so much for helping me pass this exam. Now on to the next one!!!
I am NOT someone who traditionally does well on these kind of exams. I was so stressed by the thought of taking it. I cannot recommend The Therapist Development Center highly enough. Not only did they prepare me so that I passed it the first time during a stressful period in my life I was astonished to find I actually ENJOYED the process in some ways! I learned along the way and came to enjoy the complexity of thinking required to move through the exam and succeed. Thank you TDC, so glad you're out there!"
Thank you so much TDC for your strategies and support in passing the exam. Fianlly I am a licensed MFT!!!I took the first exam several times using other test prep companies, but did not come close to passing the first exam until I took your study prep company. Took the second exam first time and passed.
Any test materials can teach you knowledge, but TDC goes beyond this and teaches real-life strategies to use that knowledge in a way that helps you reason through the BBS questions. I actually enjoyed sitting down to study and listen to the audios. On top of the actual study materials and audios was the accessibility of Asya, a TDC coach who patiently answered every question I emailed her during my study time. She always got back to me within 24 hours (sometimes within a few minutes) and never made me feel like I was asking too many questions. Valuable resource that is provided with what you pay for the materials. Best of all, I passed--such a relief! I've recommended this to so many intern colleagues and everyone I've talked to has given it an A+. Thanks team TDC!
I had purchased the complete Gerry Grossman study package for both of the MFT exams when my hours were approved. I used it to study for the first exam and passed, but during the actual exam I did not feel confident in my answers and was quite surprised to have earned a passing score. There was a lot of rote memorization and many of the rationales just didn't make sense to me. I started studying with those materials for the vignette exam and kept putting it off because I could not wrap my mind around the information and found it too cumbersome and unhelpful to have to memorize pages of "mnemonic devices." After putting my exam off 3 times, I finally decided to try TDC. And WOW! From the first lesson I felt more confident, more prepared, and like I stood a chance of passing. The approach to test prep was completely different and it helped to understand what the exam was designed to assess, rather than view the exam as the "enemy trying to trick me." The rationales were straightforward and clear. I went through all of the study materials and during the exam I was actually surprised about how confident I was in all of my answers. Based on my previous experience, I simply wasn't used to being able to so definitively rule out answer choices. I am thrilled to have spent the money on the TDC materials and only wish I had also purchased the study materials for my first exam as well. THANK YOU!!
I cannot recommend the TDC study program highly enough! I passed both my MFT exams on the first attempt. After watching colleagues around me procrastinate & worry about these exams for months and months, TDC's organized, structured, streamlined yet still thorough approach, was so wonderful. I felt confident and prepared for both exams the whole way through the process. Thank you!!
The TDC study system made the difference. I would not have been able to pass without it. I did the entire system, the MFT standard written first, and the clinical vignette second. For the first test I had a one hour personal coaching session with Asya that was the key to my passing. I was stuck in some areas and Asya was quickly able to help me see where I was going wrong and what I needed to do to correct it. Subsequently I passed. I did not have a coaching session for the vignette exam, but the actual exam was more challenging than I though it was going to be, however I passed it as well. I am appreciative and grateful for the TDC and its staff. I will likely never be able to get Amanda's voice out of my head, but that's not a bad thing. TDC's insights and guidance not only helped me to pass both tests, but have helped me to become a much better and more well-rounded therapist!
I passed both exams on my first try and did not take any other prep courses, or do any other mock exams. I followed TDC's test strategies as they were taught and they were perfect. The vignette exam would have been impossible for me without TDC's strategies! The system kept me on track and confident. Thank you I am so glad I used your program!!!
I used TDC and passed my MFT Standard Written Exam on my first try back in November. I was super excited to find TDC. I had been loaned a handful of materials from other test-prep companies and got really, really overwhelmed just looking at them - one book was about 4-inches thick! If I had used one of those companies, I am pretty sure I would still be studying for the exam :/. In contrast, I found TDC's materials to be simple and matter-of-fact - and to my surprise, I found that I actually kind of enjoyed the studying process. I did have some anxiety leading up to the exam and scheduled a 1-1 session with Asya - she had a really calming presence and gave me some additional pointers that were unique to my situation. When I took the exam, I felt nervous but 100% prepared. I am now cracking down to study for my second exam - I plan to use TDC and pass again on my first try!
I passed both exams the first time with TDC. I felt confident going into the exams, and feel much more confident in my clinical skills as a therapist, and for that, I am extremely grateful. Overall, fantastic system and I am already recommending to colleagues and friends. I am so glad the process is over! :)
I would like to share that I have been in the testing phase for over five years with many years of disappointment and frustration. I had ordered another program, attended their classes and took all of their text prep exams online. I can say without hesitation their program doesn't come close to teaching you what you need to know to take the exam. The only thing I learned from their test is how to memorize their test bank questions which leads to failing. TDC teaches you what you need to know to pass the exam, not a bunch of overwhelming material to memorize. I can say though, the first 12-15 questions were very difficult and I thought oh no I'm going to fail again! I only had 30 min left to answer the last 15 questions. At the end I went back to some of the first questions I had marked and finished the test with 4 minutes left when I pressed end. When I got through their survey at the end and read PASS on the screen I simply cried with relief! It has been such a long time trying to get to this point! I definitely would recommend TDC to anyone! Thank you so much!
