Being reminded of how important counseling background is for the SLP, and how important the family of the client is - getting them to "buy-in."

By far the best course I have taken yet at speechpathology.com!! Well organized, full of heart, compassion and passion, which I fear many lack in our profession. Not because they aren't good people or professionals, but because of the many stated reasons as spoken in the course (e.g. time constraints, numbers, billing etc). This course actually brought tears to my eyes, not to mention several opportunities of laughter. That's the human experience. The human in all of us and the ability to recognize that communication, whether it be working on prepositions or trying to help and listen to someone in need.

Great information on a somewhat gray area for SLPs
Review by: Mary on August 12, 2014
I've always loved Dr. Audrey Holland's philosophy and approach to treatment in that she the central importance of of counseling in our profession and recognizing our clients and our clients’ families as people, integral and valued compoments of any treatment program. She reinforces that we, as SLP's, are not simply "technicians", eliciting and recording responses and analyzing test scores, etc. I always enjoy Dr. Holland's courses, as her passion for and dedication to our profession shines through from her opening remarks to the very end of her presentation. The information she presents is always well-organized and easy to follow, clinically relevant and applicable to an array of clinical populations (and ages), interjected with humor and personal anecdotes throughout, and includes extensive practical advice and observations based on her years of clinical expertise. What more could you ask for?!
