Testimonials About Roy’s Presentations

Ofer Zur, PhDRoy presents a unique combination of expertise and heart… Equally important is that he is not an alarmist and he neither scares practitioners nor presents a fear-based, rigid risk management approach.Like very few others, Mr. Huggins can present with warmth and clarity on complex issues that most therapists wonder about in simple, understandable language. These topics include security and privacy of e-mails, texts, laptops, smartphones, tablets, as well as about encryption, electronic health records, and much, much more.”– Ofer Zur, PhD

“I wanted to take a second to thank you.  You blended incredible depth of knowledge, sense of humor and a clear message of respect for clients and colleagues.  I learned that I have work to do to get up to speed in a number of areas but I don’t think I’m at ground zero.One of the best workshops I’ve attended in 20 years!– New Orleans, LA Training Attendee

The material covered was extremely relevant, thorough, and applicable. Value added was far beyond the cost of the training. Thank you!”– Portland, OR Training Attendee

Roy Huggins did a well-received presentation for our organization. He is unusual in his grasp of technology, clinical work, and professional ethics and in his ability to explain how they interact in our day to day practice. All this done in language that was easy to understand without being a techie, and complete with concrete, step by step approaches for maintaining confidentiality in the digital age. I highly recommend him.”– Albert J. Bernstein PhD
