I learned a great deal relevant to my first session. I watched this class as a 501 student and felt it to be a thorough and useful reference tool before I did my first session.

Very well done. Helpful for both the structure of the first session, and how to understand the deeper issues - both of the session and of the client. Thank you for another wonderful learning experience with John Melton!

Would have liked to have this lesson as one of the enrollment lectures but still helpful even after graduation and seeing clients.

A really great lesson, it was very helpful to see this newly filmed remake of this class, after seeing the original as part of the advanced course I took several years ago and now seeing this one as well, I now have a much better understanding of what to do in the first session than I had from the original class, this one explained things in a way I could more easily grasp. I can't wait to get access and take all of the other newly remade classes and refresh on all of them.

Mr. Melton was the first instructor I had and he continued in this teaching me a good basis and good practice. I very much liked the class.
