Student Reviews

“I really don’t know what could have made it more effective. The course met a need in an interesting, informative and sometimes comical way. I appreciated the inclusion of DV charts and some of the information on substance abuse that will be very useful for families dealing with abusers. Legal jargon is often difficult for lay people. This was presented with that in mind. As counselors, we MUST know these laws and the way with which this course is set up made this less tedious”

“I have taken both the online and in person CEU courses offered by the McMillans. They are passionate about educating professionals in our industry on protecting ourselves and to provide the best possible care to our clients. They are extremely knowledgeable, their courses and website are easy to access, their message can make a heavy subject lighthearted in an appropriate way allowing the information to be more readily absorbed. And their customer service is very hands on and so helpful.”
