- Dr Marty Klein is by far one of your best instructors..I so appreciate the way he communicates information. Very easily understood, interesting, filled with humor......JUST GREAT!!!
I really learned a lot, THANK YOU Dr. Ofer Zur for offering this type of coursework to us. Makes CEU's so much more enjoyable. Feel like I am really learning something working in this self study manner, vs going to a conference/workshop. (Sexual Issues - Diagnosis and Treatments)

F.S., Ph.D., California, US
February 28, 2017
- Being a Jungian psychotherapist, I was concerned that it might be too introductory. While it was more of a survey than I am used to - I could have listened to a whole seminar on just one of the modalities - it was so full of new and clarifying information that I was more than satisfied. I'm always amazed at how I can be exposed to a concept again and again and hear it in a different way each time, always learning something new. (Jungian Psychotherapy: Active Imagination)
E.S., M.A., Maine, US
February 26, 2017
There were a lot of things I thought I knew about this topic that were narrow and/or inaccurate. The course was really useful in expanding my knowledge base!

- This is the first time I didn't give up on the hope that I could learn a lot of practical and implementable HIPAA information that would allow me to make immediate changes in my practice - changes that will further improve my compliance and ability to understand the related ethics, standards and guidelines. Thank you!
L.G., PhD, Massachusettes, US
July 24, 2016

R.F., Ph.D., Massachusettes, US
March 25, 2016
- I recently completed your certificate program in Telemental Health. These courses are amazing! I have been doing eTherapy with my California clients for the past 18 months, because I was called back home to New England to help a friend with a terminal illness. I am a digital immigrant, who thought little of the possibilities. (I will be 70 in a few weeks!) My experience soon proved me wrong. My clients are flourishing. Your courses have given order and shape to what I basically stumbled into with bubble gum and bailing wire. They have also inspired me to continue to develop my practice along these lines going forward.
I hope this finds you happy and well. Thank you so much,
A.B., L.M.F.T., California, US
March 28, 2016
- As always, your programs make CEU's as easy, painless, and simple as possible, and yet are substantive as well. I recommend you highly to colleagues whenever the topic of CEU's comes up. (Anxiety Disorders)
A.S., Ph.D., California, US
March 24, 2016
- I think the supervision training I purchased from you was more in depth, had better supporting material, was more engaging, and was generally much better than other on-line supervision trainings that I have found. They often give the same content over and over, but yours provided new learning. Additionally, your training was focused on multiple learning styles and went beyond a simple lecture, which I appreciated.
P.S., M.S.W., Minnesota, US
January 12, 2016
- I chose Zur Institute for CEs because of the non-dogmatic viewpoint presented, and I can see it has helped modify the professional ethics for the good over time. (Termination)

S.B., Ed.D., North Carolina, US
May 1, 2015
- This course (Counseling Boomers and Seniors) was highly effective in presenting relevant materials. I learned more from this course than any other I have taken with Zur Institute.
T.R., M.S., Oklahoma, US
April 22, 2015
- Unfortunately I left many CEU's needing to be obtained too close to license renewal date. A colleague told me about Dr. Ofer Zur's online coursework. I was DREADING taking the time to sit with the computer, wrongly thinking I would be bored out of my mind. It is quite the contrary, I am so unbelievably interested in the material!!! So far all the courses taken have been very informative, well organized, and very easy for someone like me who is somewhat challenged when using computers. Thank You Zur Institute.
J.L., M.A., California, US
March 27, 2015
- I have taken several Zur Institute courses over the years. I find them to be better organized, and with more useful material than many "in person" conferences I attend.
S.G., M.S.W., New Jersey, US
March 26, 2015
- I've found no other organization that matches your efficiency, wide range of course offerings, and ease of engagement. You make a laborious process about as pain-limited as possible. I recommend you highly to my colleagues - have for years now. Best,
A.S., Ph.D., California, US
March 22, 2015
- I was expecting this to be a waste of time but was very plesantly surprised to find this material was interesting, relevant and well done. I particularly like the material on ertoicism, marriage and women.
A.J., M.A., California, US
March 11, 2015
- These Zur Institute Trainings are simply the highest quality online trainings I have seen in my professional career of nearly a quarter century. Thank you Dr. Zur.
J.C., MS, Georgia, US
February 6, 2015
- This was the best course I've taken from Ofer Zur (Anxiety Disorders). It was theoretical, clinical, relevant, easily presented and hands on. I really liked it.

S.E., Ph.D., California, US
December 31, 2014
- My compliments and support for your course offerings and your ongoing willingness to challenge the shibboleths and conventional wisdom of psychiatry and psychotherapy. I'd like to take several of your courses as you are one of the very, very few clinical educational organizations which offers any courses which challenges clinicians to think.
H.K., MSW, California, US
December 29, 2014
- I have taken multiple courses on HIPPA both in person and online. This is the best yet. The name of the course is perfect (HIPAA Made Simple). This is the friendliest HIPPA course ever.
J.C., Ph.D., Georgia, US
December 15, 2914, 2014

- I highly recommend this course (Digital and Social Media Ethics for Psychotherapists: Clinical and Ethical Considerations) to better understand the ethical challenges in professional counseling and the internet.

C.S., M.S., California, US
April 22, 2014
Wow!!! Life changing experience taking your course, both personally and professionally!
Seriously, it's given me a much, much expanded vocabulary; a large set of therapy tools; and a lot of new horizons for personal and professional growth. I'm looking forward to learning more about the beginnings I've made.
The CBT, DBT and Evidence-based devotees need a healthy dose of this course to counter-balance their ego-based concepts of humanity. Thanks so much,
K.P., Ph.D., North Carolina, US
April 22, 2014
Pamela, Many thanks. You did me one better than I requested and I truly appreciate your help. I think the Zur Institute does a terrific job in educating practitioners and is extremely user friendly. Ofer is also a rational, reasonable psychologist! His presentations are articulate and well organized. And you are a terrific director of operations. I have recommended you all to many colleagues. Thank you again.
N.D., Ph.D., California, US

You are wonderful! Thank you so much for promptly attending to my problem. I am so happy with the quality of Zur institute and especially with the personal service you provided me. I intend to continue using Zur institute for all of my CE credits. Thanks again!

March 17, 2014
I thank you for your congratulations with regard to completion of the courses! I thank you also for your kindness in offering me [help]! That means so much to me : ). I was beyond pleased with each course I completed, and navigation throughout each course and the website overall was very user friendly! I will most definitely utilize the Zur Institute for future educational needs, and I will also be sure to recommend the Zur Institute with highest compliments to anyone I know needing coursework of this kind. Thanks so much for all of your help!

This is my second course. I started taking the courses for the CEU's but am learning so much on topics I am interested in that I will no longer have to worry about having the number of CEU's needed for licensure!
D.C., M.Ed., Kentucky, US
October 11, 2013
- Dear Ms. Adler, I am impressed with your speedy response and appreciate you taking my concerns seriously.
Thank you for letting me know that the issues have already been resolved. You can bet that when I next need CEUs, Zur Institute is where I will turn to. Have a great rest of the day!
N.M., Ph.D., California, US

- Zur Institute's DSM-5 - Friend or Foe? is by far the best online CE experience I have ever had! Thank you!
S.B., Ed.D., North Carolina, US
June 21, 2013
- Thank you so much. I love Zur Institute classes because you are always so responsive when I need help. I have used other CEU classes on-line in the past but had endless problems with the sites and no help available. I saw Dr. Zur in person a few years ago and think he's brilliant and a good speaker, too.
P.I., M.A., California, US
June 7, 2013
- Thanks again for getting back to me so quickly. I think the Token Program is a great idea, because we can now select courses one by one, rather than all at once, which is nice. I really enjoy taking these courses and get a lot out of them and I appreciate your terrific customer service as well.
L.W., Psy.D., California, US
May 24, 2013
- Thank you for your quick response and for the information. I didn't know how much of a change there was to the current version of the HIPAA course, so it's helpful to know that it's a major revision. I was already planning to take the HIPAA Security and Privacy course sometime over the next few months. I also had noticed the addition of the feature that allows one to purchase a bundle of tokens. It's a great option. It makes it easier to find a package that's of interest and that doesn't include courses I've already taken.
Thank you again for your help.
S.F., PhD, MEd, LPC-S, Texas, US
May 18, 2013
- I can't wait to find more certificate courses you offer that I can use in my practice as a performance and life coach. Thank You!
E.G., Psy.D, California, US

April 17, 2013
- Hello Pamela,
My sincere thanks for your positive response to my document access
dilemma. I am grateful also that the author will be able to help out
with such short notice. Zur Institute is an incredible source for
training; one of, if not the MOST, accessible resources I know of to
F.M., Ph.D., California, US
April 9, 2013
- I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the courses. These have to be the best courses I have ever taken in the field. I'm really happy I found your website. What a blessing!
O.V., Ph.D, Canada
April 5, 2013
- I value the deeper reflection required with Dr. Zur's courses. Many other courses are too lightweight for me; they seem to cater to folks who just want to get through them quickly.
W.W., Psy.D., California, US
June 28, 2012
- I've taken two courses with you now and enjoyed them both immensely, and your customer service has been consistently amazing. In fact, when I found I needed one more course for my license renewal, one of my first thoughts was "let me check the Zur Institute. I bet they'll have something fascinating."
M.O., Social Worker, North Carolina, US
June 22, 2012
- Great course, I am so happy that I was referred to the Zur Institute from the Orange County Psychological Association CA. I plan to take many more CEUs from ZUR thanks again.
T.J., Ph.D., California, US

October 6, 2011
- Pamela. U guys are so awesome. Thank you. I love your courses and you are so easy to work with when I have had questions or problems in the past. You are my number 1 place for ce courses.
R.A., Psychologist, California, US
September 27, 2011
- Wow, I am now more impressed with the Zur Institute: not only do you have excellent courses across a very wide range of topics, you really do take evaluation comments seriously. As already the case, I will continue to suggest your offerings to colleagues who are searching for CE classes, so many of which are not a good experience (especially the ethics classes which are often designed to scare clinicians into compliance with a rigidly legalistic perspective about providing care to people).
You folks are a "bargain" and valuable, particularly for us "senior" clinicians (30+ years in practice) who become tired of the usual CE offerings.
July 18, 2011
- Hi Dr. Zur, I said it again and again, THANK YOU. I am about to graduate in two months, and your website has been part of my success. Thanks you for your wisdom and generosity.
June 8, 2011
- Zur Institute is my favorite online CEU for psychology. Well done. Keep up the good work.

P.J., Ph.D., Washington, US
April 29, 2011
- I just want you to know how pleased I was with the online CEU coursework. I have referred three other clinicians to your website.
A.K., Mental Health Coordinator, Maryland, US
April 20, 2011
- Your voice of reason and truth are ALWAYS so welcome and refreshing! How is it that the individuals within the policy making institutions so easily lose their ability to THINK.....as well as their humaness???? Easier that way, I guess....no complexities to deal with...eeeyou!... can make a head hurt.
T.M., Marriage and Family Therapist, California, US
April 7, 2011
- I heard about this program from a presenter as I was unable to attend her ethic training and needed some ceus for licensure. I was pleasantly surprised at how this provided some interesting material. It kept my attention, and I felt as if was valuable information. Thank you.
B.S., Licensed Professional Counselor, Maine, US
April 1, 2011
- These are the most intelligently written courses and the most efficient website.
G.C., Counselor, California, US
March 27, 2011
- Dr. Zur: I have taken some of your courses and I have found them to be very useful and user friendly. The information I first got from you last year on Digital Natives/Digital Immigrants has been a life changing experience for me. I use the information in my therapy sessions and in my supervision of interns (and give you credit, of course). Thank you for this follow-up article which I am sure will be just as helpful.
B.W., Ph.D., Idaho, US
March 18, 2011
- Another hugely interesting article - and well-timed as I am speaking about technology next week. Many thanks for all the cutting edge material you write, and in particular for making it so freely available.

- I enjoy your newsletters, especially your thoughtful challenges to the received wisdom of the mental health industry.
R.S., Psychologist, California, US
December 4, 2010
- Dr. Zur's information is more than just helpful, Dr. Zur himself is a needed voice of wisdom in this work. I am unfortunate enough to work in a region that is, frankly, suffocating any notion of beneficial dual relationships, innovations in caregiving, or just plain human warmth. This is a loss for the profession, and Dr. Zur's work offers the antidote.
The Zur Institute is an amazing repository of knowledge, and represents the role of compassion, creativity, and ingenuity in treatment approaches. I wish I could insist that every administrator, Board, and supervisor could become familiar with the things Dr. Zur and the Zur Institute offer! Not only would it pull our profession back from stagnation into dynamic compassion again, but it would help us see what a role-model for those relationship-based clinical values looks like.
J.M., Social Worker, Oklahoma, US
December 1, 2010
- I just spent the past hour reading your fantastic 2010 article "The Risky Business of Risk Management". You are like an oasis of reason in a desert of hysteria. You clearly are a wonderful person dedicated to making this world better by helping people and your inspiration is awesome. I am even more determined not to let the "risk management" mafia destroy our mission of helping people. You seem to be the only authority who has written so extensively, persuasively, and comprehensively (not to mention inspiringly) about the insidious effects of risk management.
T.E., Counselor, Colorado, US
November 28, 2010
- Thank you for your wonderful article about touch deprivation and the running amok of risk management.
L.M., Counselor, Arizona, US
November 25, 2010
- I want to write to say how useful I find your regular updates and sensible approach to therapeutic work. The last one on boundaries and working 'outside the room' confirmed my own instinctual responses about what is acceptable, therapeutic and maintains integrity and humanity. Best wishes for your continued success.
W.S., Counselor, Scotland
