We also combined several courses into one course, as explained below.
Due to different NBCC rules regarding course hours, please note that the booklet courses entitled, Ethics: Cases and Commentary I and Ethics: Cases and Commentary II have been combined into one course entitled, Ethics: Cases and Commentary; either course alone cannot be completed, instead, both courses must be read. Likewise, the online course entitled Positive Psychology is a combination of the booklet courses Positive Psychology I, Positive Psychology II, Positive Psychology III, and Positive Psychology IV, and all four courses will need to be read because any one of the four Positive Psychology courses cannot be completed by itself. The online course entitled, Women's Health is a combination of the booklet courses entitled, Women's Health and Women's Health II. The online course entitled, Famous Therapist Errors is a combination of the booklet courses entitled, Famous Therapist Errors and Famous Therapist Errors II. The online course entitled, Ethics: Case Studies is a combination of the booklet courses entitled, Ethics: Cases Studies I and Ethics: Case Studies II.

The booklet and online courses are the same, except for the course, Ethics: Cases and Commentary which has a small amount of new information added, on page 9, and 14 through 17. In other words, you do not have to read the online courses if you have already read the booklet courses because the courses are the same.

The State Social Work/Counselor/LMFT Boards for the states indicated in "METHOD B" accept continuing education that is accepted by NBCC and our courses are NBCC-approved. Your printed certificate is accepted by your specific State Social Work/Counselor/LMFT Board.
