Comments from people who have taken a NATI course...

"Special thanks to Dr. Rambeck for his time and insight on the pathological gambler.  I really have used his insight and therapy tools with my patients.  I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to get into the gambling addiction field."

"I gained more knowledge and helpful information in a cross/current way than I expected. I appreciate the fact that they integrated Eric Erickson's stages and the grief model along with the interviewing session with Mike. I feel very prepared now to work with gamblers and I understand them in a way I didn't think was possible. You did a good job describing the personalities along with the underlying issues of the gambler. Thank you."

Marlys Scholtec

"I learned so much from this training. I would highly recommend it. I have gone to so many continuing education classes to come back and have nothing that is applicable. This course gives some real 'hands on' applications that can be used with more than just gambling addictions. The technical staff was great. I liked the convenience of taking the course in my own home. They [NATI] also helped me arrange to get college credit for the course. I truly enjoyed the experience!"

Devonne Powell

"I found the course very enlightening and helpful. I especially found the interviews and case studies interesting. Technical support was a lifesaver! I have enjoyed taking the course online...it is a first experience for me."

Jan Boyum

"Dr. Rambeck did a superb job in presenting the material, both organizationally and by content. I have taken several gambling courses, and this course helped me further develop concepts I was familiar with and introduced me to the concepts I need to know."
