2 hours later with time for serious questions and answers, we were done. But aside from potty breaks their day was still going strong. Young therapists seeking their doctoral degrees, thirsty for knowledge. Commendable, Carol (who is a board certified sexologist with a doctoral degree, how many therapists can claim that!).
