    The mini courses and supervision I participated in with Dr. Melamed have truly changed the way I approach my work, and the impact I feel I am able to have on my patients. The introduction to CBT gave me skills that I was able to use immediately with ongoing patients.  Debbie is terrific–her classes are well-organized and full of real case examples. I highly recommend!    ~ Kate Bieger, Ph.D.
