What people are saying…
“Dr. Hart was very thorough and helpful when I had questions. I was skeptical of this course because I have always disliked Psychology courses….until this one! Thank you for making it interesting! (BTW I never comment on surveys! You definitely made a great impression on my learning experience! Thank you!)”
“I enjoyed this class so much. It gave me the opportunity to look at other viewpoints and the freedom to disagree with those viewpoints. I felt comfortable expressing my opinion and my hard work was rewarded. I wish that Dr. Hart was my professor throughout this entire program. “
I had the privilege to work with Dr. Hart for in a school setting and witnessed this very scenario. His clinical skills as a psychologist are the finest I have seen. His ability to explain the needs of children to the parents is extraordinary. He has those rare gifts of empathy and knowledge that he brings to each situation.
