In October and November 2014 I presented a series of 8 workshops for psychologists and legal professionals in Australia at the invitation of the Australian Psychological Society (APS). Here is the the APS brochure describing the workshops.

Question number 13 on the participant feedback questionnaires was "Overall I would rate this workshop as:..." 85% of those who responded rated the workshop they attended as "Very Good" (the highest possible rating), 15% rated the workshop as "Good,"  and no one endorsed any of the four other responses. Here are written comments from four of the feedback questionnaires:

Steve Herman is not only an excellent presenter but his research is thorough and he is very happy to engage by email and assist us with any further questions that might arise from attending the workshop.


The reference list and resources (articles in zip file) offered by presenter was a great idea!


An excellent learning experience.


Mostly past presenters have been open but not to such an extent that I feel confident I can email and ask questions.


The full APS feedback report, including all of the comments,is available here.



On May 28th, 2014, I was the lead presenter of a workshop entitled "Uncorroborated allegations of child sexual abuse: Science and practice" to an audience of about 40 judges, attorneys, prosecutors, and psychologists at the annual conference of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC) in Toronto, Canada. I presented during about 5 of the 7 hours of the workshop. An excerpt from the conference program that includes a description of the workshop is available here.

On the overall evaluation question, "This session expanded my level of knowledge on the topic," the mean rating across 31 participants who completed the rating form was 4.55 on a scale from 1 (Disagree) to 5 (Agree). The full feedback report from the AFCC is available here.
