I just took the NCMHCE today and I passed! In addition to reviewing the DSM, this website was extremely helpful in helping me to be prepared for my konwledge and application of techniques when taking the exam! Thank you for this resource!

Great Review!!!

by Anthony Garcia
Condenses a lot of what you need a refresher on in a short period of time. To the point and I like how Dr. Carr goes over the techniques in detail with some presenting examples. Glad I was able to use this! Thanks!

Theories, Therapies and Techniques

by Stephananie Childress
This was extremely helpful. I took 31 pages of notes. Although my way of studying maybe more time-consuming, it offers me confidence in taking the exam. As I was going through the material, most everything was familiar, it was a good refresher and I like the way the information was organized. Thanks Dr. Carr

The easiest way to understand theories, therapies, and techniques

by Amanda Gurgel
Thank you Dr. Carr for providing a resource that is easy to understand and make connections when treating disorders. The chapters outline individually each theory and how it functions and serves a purpose for treating DSM diagnosis. I feel more prepared for the NCMHCE. Thank you Dr. Carr! Highly recommended :).

Before going through this video series, I really struggled with trying to figure out which were the most appropriate treatment theories/approaches for various disorders. But, this video series really breaks it down and is helpful for matching treatment with diagnosis. I am feeling more confident after reviewing these videos, and I'm looking forward to doing well on my upcoming counselor license exam.

Very Imformative and Easy to Understand

by Jennie Friedman
Dr. Carr once again did a great job with this course! She explained all the theories very well and broke it down so it was easy to understand. I especially enjoyed learning about the specific techniques, what they are used for, and what therapy or therapies they best applies to. I feel more confident when I am doing the counselingexam.com simulations because I will actually know what the techniques are. Thank you!
