Reviews
A step–by–step system for working with very difficult clients. I anticipate that this system will be highly useful in my practice. Dr. Godwin's teaching was incredibly organized and very practical in real life issues.
Ann Beam, Counselor
Springfield, OR


Alan Godwin gave the best seminar I have attended in many years. The topic was very relevant to my therapy practice and his material was clear, thorough, and will be very useful as I work with my clients in the future. His use of material from his own practice helped put "theory" in a real life perspective.
