 “Having just finished the ABA distance learning course, I would like to say what an incredibly important resource it is for international students. I do not have access to a local programme here in the UK. … the respect I felt as a student and a mother was incredible. Not once was I made to feel that completion was ever in doubt. ... I was continually given constructive feedback and encouragement. I was never spoon-fed; I worked hard and feel that I reaped the reward. … I was the fifth person at UK Young Autism Project to enroll in your course, and I am not the last. It has been invaluable to all my colleagues who preceded me. … I have always felt a part of your University even though it’s only ever been just me sitting at my desk in my study in Birmingham UK. ”

Clinical Mental Health Counseling

"I am a staff psychotherapist in the Adolescent Unit at Clara’s House, a program of St. Cloud Hospital. The greatest gift of working with this age group is their ability to share, grow, and make change by being part of a therapeutic group. This brings me back to my cohort in the Community Counseling Program (now Clinical Mental Health Counseling) where, as a group, we learned from gifted educators that believed in us. I always felt that faculty supported my specific academic needs while encouraging my growth and development in the field of counseling.

"During my coursework, I coauthored a book with Niloufer Merchant titled “Groups in Community and Agency Settings.” In the book, Dr. Merchant provided an academic perspective to group work. My contribution was from a practitioner standpoint highlighting groups in various agency settings."
