The TDC study materials for the Clinical exam are just as excellent as the Law and Ethics materials! I passed both exams the first time using these study materials. I had tried using two other study resources and failed. With TDC, I not only learned all of the new changes and updates but also all of the information I had not learned in grad school and my internships. This helped me not only pass the exam but also gain an overall and comprehensive understanding of MFT practice from beginning to end. I now feel well prepared to begin a practice. Amanda is an excellent instructor, stays with you the whole way and provides all of the materials needed to pass. When I took the Clinical exam I felt very nervous at first, but when I knew the answers I was able to calm down considerably. I am so grateful, and thank you Amanda for TDC!
Praise God and thank goodness for this amazing program! I was looking for a superior product and I researched many options before selecting this one. It is thorough, helpful and effective, especially if you use it as intended. I was able to pass the FIRST time. Thank you for this carefully thought and crafted system of study!!
I got a 161 out of 200. Passing rate is 140. I'm beyond thrilled and feel like I was as prepared as I could be. Thanks TDC!
This was the prefect study system for a busy mom like me. You can put more into it if you have the time, but you can get a lot out of it even if you're time is more limited. I started out just listening to the audios while I did other things like drive to work or clean the house. I intended to go back and listen again and then take notes at the same time, but I didn't have time. I did take the practice tests and mock exams and listened to some of the rationales. So I didn't use it in the ideal way, however without this system, I probably wouldn't have studied much at all so this was definitely the best for me. I like that the organization of the material is in such a way that it's not an all or nothing thing. Even if you start and only get through the top 50 topics you've gained a lot of info. Thanks Amanda!!!!!
Therapist Development Center far exceeds the other courses. The information in the audio files is much easier to absorb than worksheets or books. I will definitely use TDC for my licensing exam and I would recommend the course to all my colleagues.
I have always considered myself to be a horrible test taker. Give me a topic and a page limit, and I'd happily write, explain, justify, creatively outline almost anything -- but tests always destroyed my confidence. I could not be happier with the MFT Law and Ethics course. Not only did I feel confident in my factual knowledge of the material, but all of the different components boosted my confidence that I also had a working knowledge of Law and Ethics. One thing I looked for in testimonials, but did not find, was specifics on how people performed percentage wise on their practice tests. So I would like to share mine. On the first round of the practice tests, I scored 61%, 63% and 79%. At this point I was not very encouraged, but as Amanda said, I took the tests again after going through the Top 30 Lectures again. My scores SKYROCKETED! 97%, 97% and 95%. I was feeling really great until I took the mock tests. 79% on the first and 76% on the second. Granted, those were both passing scores, but I was hoping to get insanely high percentages on those mock exams so I could go into the exam stress free. Honestly, I am glad that I didn't. I needed the nerves because they kept me 100% present during the exam -- and that was the most important percentage of all. If you take anything from this, please believe me when I advise you to not get bogged down by number scores and percentages. Listen to the lectures, have someone NOT in the field listen to you explain the ABC's of Law and Ethics so you need to talk through them. Keep your nerves, talk through concepts out loud and be present. Amanda does the rest!
Thank you for providing good audios & easy to understand material. You were the best supervision ever!!!!
I took the MFT Law & Ethics exam today and passed on the first attempt. The test was challenging at times, primarily because some of the questions were poorly written or ambiguous, but Amanda's focus on reasoning was particularly helpful here. Lastly, Robin Gluck, was so helpful. We had a few conversations but I primarily emailed Robin the questions I missed on the mock exams and if I was unclear about the reasoning of the correct answer. She always replied in a timely and cogent manner. I will be using TDC for my clinical exam.
Passed after getting degree 25 years ago. Worked in the field for many years, but children, moving and life got in the way of taking licensing exams. Came back to work 3 years ago and finally accomplished goals yesterday. Thanks so much!!
I graduated in 1992 and after working for 5 years, I got married and pregnant. I had two kids back to back, moved cross country and never took my exams. After raising 3 kids, having breast cancer twice, and moving back to CA, I've gone back to work and finally accomplished my goal of being a licensed LMFT. So thankful for this programs help with the Law and Ethics and Clinical exam!!!
I have test anxiety so I was so worry that I would not pass, but this program help me feel so much better. Robin even called me to help with a few questions that I was worried on. I think this program is so helpful.
Amanda's prep course was excellent preparation for taking the Clinical Exam, especially in teaching me how to think and sort out the answers in relation to the question. I highly recommend it.
TDC was an excellent study partner! The exam was similar and so I felt more confident going in. I couldn't have done it without TDC!
I am not a natural test taker, especially multiple choice questions, but thanks to the Therapist Development Center, I passed my Law and Ethics exam on my first attempt. I have recommended TDC to other colleagues who suffer from test anxiety, and I know I will use TDC when I study for my clinical exam in the upcoming year. This was well worth the money and time. I studied to learned the material, not to just pass the exam, but to understand the logic behind the BBS's Law and Ethics which will support me now as an intern, and also later in my private practice. Cheers for an excellent test prep program!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you and thank you!!! I failed the test on my first try because I did not complete your full study process. I studied right up to the section of the mock exams, took one mock exam and thought I was ready. Boy was I wrong. This time I took all the mock exams and the final mock exam. I discovered that the exams were exposing my conceptional weaknesses. I was making mistakes by not reading the question stem correctly or giving an answer that did not fully answer the question. I also realized that as I continued through the entire course every important question and concept was taught over and over and over again... until finally I got it. When I sat to begin the test, I took the scratch paper and wrote out a guide for those questions and theories I struggled with. However, your questions on the mock exam were so close to the real thing that when I sat for the actual test, it was as if I was taking one of the mock exams again. This helped lower my anxiety. I still had to fight with negative thoughts and my internal fear of failing the second time. While taking the test, I actually reminded my self that I was not alone. Your voice was in my head asking me, "Do you really think that is the best answer? Check the question stem again. Make sure you are giving the best answer." I kept reminding myself that I was going to pass. I stopped at question 85, took a 3 minute restroom break, munched on a protein bar and half a banana for 2 minutes, hopped up and down and went back for round two. Praise God I passed. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
I loved this program. It wasn't overwhelming like others. Amanda made the materials very comprehensive. The study plan was great. Thank you, Amanda and your coaching team!!!
I felt absolutely prepared for the Law and Ethics test because of this program! This is a well-thought out study program. I really appreciated all of the planning that went into it. From the "How to Study" schedule, to the pre-test, to the thorough rationals provided, to the final pep talk. I can't thank you enough for the support provided! I'll be back for the Clinical Study program!
I am so grateful for this program. It was especially helpful to have the material divided into sections to make it more manageable. I really appreciated the encouragement throughout the study material. Thanks!
There is a limit to the amount and depth of information needed to pass this test. It's what I got in my Masters Program and still retain a year or two into my internship. The main points of Law & Ethics I use weekly in my work, and this program's lectures are enough to refresh the concepts needed. The great benefit of this program is the repetitive test practice and explanations that teach the nuances of real world application of the concepts that the actual test demands, and that textbooks don't sufficiently provide. On each question, I could literally hear the voice from the lectures and test reviews guiding me to understand what was being asked, eliminate what didn't work, and then choose effectively the best answer. I passed because of this program and the skills it taught me have made me a better clinician. I studied on my own and I failed the test the first time, not because I didn't grasp the concepts, but rather that I didn't understand sufficiently the subtleties that only practice can provide. This program provided that practice for me in an organized, concentrated way, and in a short amount of time. Best of all it did it in a way that sticks. I have recommended this program to fellow interns and so far all have passed. I will be using TDC for the licensing exam as well.
I felt this program truly prepared me to take the exam. I was able to practice critical thinking because of the information provided in this study program. I am an auditory and visual learner, and liked that this program provided both. I will definitely use TDC when I am ready to study for the clinical exam. Thank you so much.
