Prominent child therapist Dr. Rise VanFleet had this to say after a seminar at MNU:

"I'm very impressed by this much-needed post-master's certificate program. Play therapy offers an effective, evidence based, and developmentally attuned way to help children and families deal with problems. MNU offers high quality training and supervised experience to professionals who wish to improve their effectiveness in working with children and families. MNU's top-notch instruction and supervision also provides a valuable service to the local community-a place to strengthen children and families! I wish there were more programs like this!"
