Continuing Education for MFTs, LCSWs, LEPs and LPCCs
This section contains:
Ten continuing education courses complete with tests; simply click the desired course title listed below.
The hours and cost for the booklet courses have changed because we are now using NBCC rather than NASW approval - the new hours and cost for each course is listed above.
Due to different NBCC rules regarding course hours, please note that the course entitled, Ethics: Cases and Commentary is a combination of the courses entitled, Ethics: Cases and Commentary I and Ethics: Cases and Commentary II; the course entitled Positive Psychology is a combination of the courses Positive Psychology I, Positive Psychology II, Positive Psychology III, and Positive Psychology IV; Women's Health is a combination of Women's Health and Women's Health II; Famous Therapist Errors is a combination of Famous Therapist Errors and Famous Therapist Errors II; and Ethics: Case Studies is a combination of Ethics: Cases Studies I and Ethics: Case Studies II.
The last eight courses listed above are no longer in booklet form and will need to be either read online or printed-out on the website and then read in hard-copy.
