Having worked as an Adjunct Professor a the University of San Francisco for the past 22 years, and valuing quality continuing education to enhance my skill base as a professor as well as a therapist, I highly recommend John Hamel’s training. I was so impressed with his material that I have implemented his book as the textbook for the USF Spousal and Partner Abuse course. John’s state-of-the-art material was well organized and professionally presented.”
