The Defining Line
by Carole Martin
This is an absolutely flawless explanation and compilation of study material. Dr. Carr has the gift of being able to present this challenging subject matter in a way that really points to what is needed for this exam. She has the teaching gene.

Great Course Helped me Differentiate Dx with similar criteria. I only wish Dissociation was apart because i struggle with that.

Such a help
by Angela Therrien
Love this series. I found it so helpful. I learned a lot.
by Krista Lacroix
Excellent, clear presentation of the basics of disorders and problems. This series helped me to zero in on the important, defining criteria of several diagnoses. The information in the video series helped me to learn the differences between similar diagnoses (IE: Bipolar I and Bipolar II), so I can ask better questions in session as well as (hopefully) ace my upcoming counselor license exam. For visual learners, this video series has excellent visual aides to help drive home the information. Audio learners are equally blessed by Dr. Carr's clear, concise explanations.
Dr. Carr clearly cares about the field as well as her customers and peers. I had a little problem with one of the videos and reached out to Dr. Carr. She responded immediately and then went above and beyond to help me. (That's almost unheard of in today's business culture!)
I highly recommend this video series as a valuable resource for new counselors as well as anyone studying for their counseling license exam!

I really enjoyed the information given here by Dr. Carr! I really need this to pass my exam! Thank you Dr. Carr! Be blessed!
An Awesome Tool
by Rosalyn Dudley
"The Defining Line" course is an awesome tool to help distinguish between different diagnoses. I initially struggled with learning how to distinguish diagnoses that have similar characteristics; however, Dr. Carr has found a way to simplify learning the differences. I now feel that I am better prepared to take the NCMHCE.
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that is interested getting clarity in the DSM-5.
by Melena Saddler
I am in the process of preparing for my exam on June 12th of 2017 and needed a refresher as I've been out of school about 4 years. The DSM 5 came out right after I graduated therefore I wasn't familiar with the changes. This course allowed me to remember the differences between specific diagnoses while learning some new ones. I feel my confident deciding between plausible and differential diagnoses :)
by Jennie Friedman
This course is my favorite! Dr. Carr does an exceptional job of breaking down the diagnoses found in the DSM- 5 that are closely linked to another and explains the differences in such a way that it is easy to understand. I loved especially the quizzes at the end of certain sections so I could easily test my knowledge and go back to any section that I feel I need to brush up on. The section on the SCHID's is my favorite!
