Ethics workshops usually are famous for their ability to put attendees to sleep within the first hour! But attendees of Deb’s training sessions have a different experience with her presentations, which are fun, full of humor (some of her power point slides contain cartoons for a bit of comic relief), and anecdotal stories that illustrate the point being discussed in a practical and potent manner.

Some ATTENDEES’ COMMENTS, which were provided on evaluation sheets following various seminars, concerning Deb’s training style:


From the most recent (July 12th) seminar:

Very helpful for me as relatively new therapist in private practice.


Loved especially the discussion at the end regarding use of authentic self! Being centered!


Never thought about advanced consent – very helpful! Thank you, Deb!


Very informative seminar. Facilitator was very expert and energetic!


I thought it was great! Referencing the laws and case examples – super helpful.


Very informative. Thanks, Deb! Nice location.


From past seminars:

“Deb provides awesome, thought-provoking info. I wish my agency would have had this info available for the clinicians before we went on the stand [at trial].”


“Information presented in a very clear and precise manner with relevant examples.”


“I really enjoyed the training; it was quite applicable to practice.”


“Deb is such an incredible speaker – and knowledgeable. I really appreciate everything [she] does to advocate for social workers and the mental health profession(s).”


“Excellent, informative and concise.”


“Very lively and informative. Made a serious subject clearer.”


“Great topic and delivery – love Deb’s navigation of the grey areas. Thank you!”


“Excellent presentation and interactions”


“Presentation was excellent!”


“Deb is an awesome speaker! I have never enjoyed ethics so much!”


“Great job with detail and appreciated your expertise.”


“You did an excellent job explaining all aspects related to therapist’s legal needs.”


“Thank you for the best Ethics presentation I have been to in 25 years of practice. Your recommendations for protecting ourselves and our clients were exceptional! I will come to any presentation you have in the future. Thank you so very much!”


“I thoroughly enjoyed your training. The intimate setting allowed for increased participation. I enjoyed the relevant examples/cases. I have been to Ethics seminars where the presenter went through the code of ethics (boring!). You discussed relevant issues that stimulated our interest in a fascinating way.”


“I attended your seminar this morning and when I got back to my office, we had been served with a subpoena for records. I was able to tell my staff how I want to handle it based on the seminar and not freak out.” – Paula of New Orleans, Louisiana


“I thoroughly enjoyed Deborah Henson’s presentation. … I especially found it refreshing and informative that the presenter was an attorney and therapist. She knows the law and I feel more confident with being subpoenaed again. She humanized the courtroom and prompted how to respond, what to say-for that I am grateful. I will recommend to my colleagues.” – Webinar participant
