"After asking Ken to come and speak to my Direct Practice class last year at USC, I was eager to have him back. He was better than the year before and covered the topic of CBT and anxiety with just the right combination of practice theory and clinical experience. He clearly has a vast understanding of the topic and managed to bring the ideas to life. Thank you Ken for a great class. The students really enjoyed it."

Moreover, the doctors of West Hills Hospital gained a better understanding of the current techniques in the treatment of depression and anxiety. A surgeon told me that he usually does not attend CME topics on mental health but not only did he attend, he stayed and listened to your entire presentation."
