WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
I am really enjoying Professor McDonald's class, Techniques in Interviewing and Intervention! The podcasts are interesting! I have been incorporating her lessons in my everyday life. It is a lot of work but it's practical. I can see in a classroom seeing where these discussions and practices would be so beneficial; it must create such a close-knit group. This class with Professor McDonald was such a great way to start off my Human Services career!
