Continuing Education by Counselors For counselors
Continuing Education by Counselors For counselors
Engaging with my counselor colleagues is truly one of the great joys of my career. I offer CE programs in small-group, highly interactive format so that participants can get to know one another as they delve deeply into the issues they care about the most. I make every effort to pre-screen participants and create working groups that make sense!
