Student Reviews

“Incredibly effective. McMillan and Wife do an excellent job of providing interesting and informative courses — I would not change anything.”

— Aimee Perez, RMHCI, Miami-Dade, FL


“I love the combination of a legal back ground and a mental health background. The entire section on Community Resources was especially helpful. Great course material! Clear and easy to understand.”

— Eileen O’Connell, LCSW, Pinellas Co, FL


“This is one of the best courses of Domestic Violence I have ever taken. Excellent— One of the new things I learned was that anger management is not appropriate for batterers. I thought that was such an important thing to learn a long with the idea of ambient abuse. I also never thought of framing pornography as abusive and that was a very helpful thing to learn.”

— F.G., LMHC, Travis, TX
