                        ·        By far my favourite course in grad school   

·         Great learning experience

·         I highly recommend this course

·         I'm applying what I've learned

·         One of the most rewarding classes I've taken

·         Opened my eyes to a new outlook

·         Really got me thinking on a whole new level

·         This has been an excellent experience

·         The combination between undergraduate
and graduate students were excellent in order to understand things from different perspectives. The feedback we got every week were helpful to be engaged and to feel a sense of belonging and growth through the course. Thank you!

·        The lecturer allowed for good class discussions and feedback. I liked doing weekly reflections because it allowed me to really engage with the literature and to see my own progress through the course. The assignments were fair and meaningful and the course flowed logically and collected ideas well. Thank you.

·        Denise’s course was simply excellent! She provided a lot of opportunities for learning and allowed us to guide our learning as well. There is a lot of work to do in this class but it isn’t hard to do because you are kept engaged throughout the course. I also enjoyed the safe environment for sharing that Denise created in her class.

·        This course was one which really broadened my views on life in general and my vocation. There are few classes in which one finds such depth and applicability to all facets of life. This is one of those classes.

·        Best prof ever. Always helps, very kind, simply amazing, please teach more classes.

·        Denise is an excellent instructor. She is very friendly and warm to her students. She is very passionate and knowledgeable about hope research. She is an inspiring person and dedicated to her field. I would love to take another course by her.

·        This was an excellent class that I would recommend to others and would come to again myself. It is rare that I enjoy a class enough to be genuinely excited about attending it in the evening but I looked forward to this class each week. The readings were well chosen and representative. The assignments were clear and fair. The instructor was delightful.

·        Dr. Larsen did an excellent job of introducing the concept of hope. I learned a lot of theoretical and practical knowledge in this class and may be interested in researching hope-focused counselling in the future. Thank you, Dr. Larsen!

·        Overall excellent course. Learned a lot and it also helped in my grad school interview! When asked what I try to do with my clients, I said to instill hope. Really enjoyed the assignments.

·        Fantastic course and instructor. This is an area to which I hope to further my studies and career.

·        This was a truly great class. Denise has a mastery of the subject matter and a deep appreciation for presenting material that will be extremely useful to my profession. Amazing.

·        I found this course to be extremely informative for both practice and theory in an area that can be diffuse and confusing but is so important. It allowed me to feel more prepared to explore hope further in research and feel grounded in my knowledge of the area. I feel that the course could be strengthened by examining hope from a philosophical view as well.

·        Denise was an extremely knowledgeable and respectful professor. This class was so interesting and I can see how I will actually use the concepts in practice and real life.

   ·  An amazing course

   ·  Applicable to life

   ·  I loved it!

   ·  Inspiring

   ·  Second-to-none

   ·  Thought-provoking
