Dr. Diane Gehart

I recorded my first online lecture in 2010 out of desperation. I had a busy conference schedule one semester, and students enrolled in my courses would miss too much if I didn't find a creative way to do my lectures.

Those online lectures were a hit! Students loved the flexibility of listening to lectures on their schedule and the freedom to replay the lecture as often as needed to maximize their learning. Each person reported using the recorded lectures in ways that complimented their unique learning style and life schedule, and the improvements in student learning were measurable! After that, I created a YouTube channel where my online training videos have been viewed millions of times.

Up until 2020, I had imagined that online learning would be appropriate for learning factual content in mental health. However, when I was required to teach all of my courses online during the pandemic, I discovered that I was wrong. Students often learned better online than in the classroom. Similarly, when I put my practice online, clients still felt connected to me, and we now had new resources to facilitate their growth and learning. Like the rest of the world, the pandemic taught us how effective online learning and therapy can be. 

In January 2021, I created the Therapy that Works Institute and have taught thousands of people through my online courses around the world. This has been the most rewarding professional experience of my career, which has included doing psychotherapy for 30 years, serving as a university faculty member for 25 years (currently at California State University, Northridge), authoring over 14 professional books (including Mastering Competences in Family Therapy, Theory and Treatment Planning in Counseling and Psychotherapy, and Mindfulness and Acceptance in Couple and Family Therapy), and presenting hundreds of presentations around the world. 

I cannot wait to teach you how fun and rewarding online courses can be!
