Continuing Education and Expert Speaker Series
We provide a context for mental health service providers to earn the continuing education hours necessary for license renewal. Workshops are scheduled in response to the needs voiced by local professionals seeking further training. We attempt to offer an ethics training each year as well as hosting various speakers with expertise in an area that educates on current trends and research, enriches clinical practice and fosters creative application of knowledge to mental health service provision. Our expert speakers series offers clinicians and interested professionals the opportunity to work with master practitioners.
The Institute for Experiential Therapies hosts experts in their field to train and educate in an experiential way. Workshops are also hosted by the Institute that offer trainings for community leaders and service providers outside of the mental health field. Most programs provide continuing education hours for professionals. (NBCC #4488).
