From Mary Patrick, CLE Director, Alaska Bar Association:
"Dr. Mundt presented at our annual convention in May of 2012. His presentation entitled "Our Wounded Warriors: Understanding PTSD and How it Fits (or Not) into Your Case" was highly regarded by our attendees, which was comprised of attorneys and judges. Comments on the evaluation forms included:
-This is the best, most important CLE program I have attended in years. Every lawyer and every citizen should be able to attend this program!
-I have a new understanding of PTSD & how to approach this disorder in my clients and opposing parties.
-Bring this speaker back to do more programs! THIS WAS AN OUTSTANDING PROGRAM! THANK YOU!
With that last comment in mind, we are now bringing Dr. Mundt back to Alaska in October. His presentation shows the knowledge and passion that he has on this topic, which makes the attendees eager for more.
I highly recommend Dr. Mundt. -Mary Patrick, CLE Director, Alaska Bar Association”July 24, 2012

From Carmen Rodriguez, Senior Training Specialist, Cook County Adult Probation Department:
"It is my pleasure to recommend John Mundt to be hired as a speaker for any agency. His training on the topic of “Supervising Veterans on Probation” was extremely informational and provided probation officers the knowledge/skills needed to better supervise veterans on probation. In addition, Dr. Mundt was able to customize this specialized training to meet the needs of our department and staff. Dr. Mundt received very good evaluations on his presentation from staff. Based on those evaluations, we would not hesitate to contract additional services with Dr. Mundt.” - Carmen Rodriguez, Senior Training Specialist, Cook County Adult Probation, August 30, 2012

From filmmaker Rachell Shapiro's blog "In Their Boots"
( http://fromhelltoherefilm.com/in-their-boots-blog-post-part-1/ ):
"...I attended a seminar on PTSD and returning combat veterans put on by the Mental Health Association. It was an all day seminar given by Dr. John Mundt, a psychologist at the Chicago VA. The audience was made up of mental health practitioners and social workers who wanted to get a better understanding of what veterans were facing and dealing with when coming home, and in turn, how they as mental health practitioners could be better prepared to help.
I wasn’t sure what to expect being that I was probably the only one in the room that was not a clinician, therapist or social worker. Would the things Dr. Mundt spoke about go over my head, would I be able to follow along, or would there a lot of clinical terminology that I wouldn’t understand? Would what he says resonate with me as a concerned citizen/filmmaker just as much as it would with the other people in the audience?
What I found was more than what I had expected. Dr. Mundt was passionate, energetic (which he would need to be to give a 7hr lecture) informative, and most importantly displayed a true sense of concern and urgency in regards to caring for our veterans."
