"For over 20 years, Michael Harvey has been my favorite colleague to watch conducting lectures or workshops. His ideas are always fresh -- exploring new and challenging themes drawn from his wealth of clinical experience, his sharp and fertile intellect, and his delightful sense of humor. Run, don't walk, to any Michael Harvey presentation it is your good fortune to attend."

“As an audiologist, it was refreshing to hear Mike's perspectives on hearing loss, and how it affects everyone. He encourages professionals to look beyond the patient's ear, and instead to look at the whole person and their world. And he gives patients and families the tools they need to understand their hearing loss and their communication needs."

“Very few psychologists have Dr. Harvey's expertise in helping deaf and hard of hearing individuals to probe and understand their own life experiences. Dr. Harvey speaks as well as he writes.

“If you ever want to have fun and learn a lot of really important information at the same time, I highly recommend that you attend one of Dr. Harvey's workshops … There are very few psychologists who have Dr Harvey's depth of experience in working with people who have problems related to hearing.  There are fewer still who are able to communicate their knowledge as effectively as he does.  So, read his books, and attend his workshops; you will be delighted and informed.”
