Attendance at this program provides licensed mental health professionals with four American Psychological Association (APA) CE credits through Applied Metapsychology International (AMI). AMI is approved by the APA to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. AMI maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

Note to LCSWs: American Psychological Association CE credits are accepted by most state professional licensing boards (Departments of Health). We’ve had no reports, over the years, of problems in this connection in the psych- or counseling-related license categories, LCSW included. We offer APA credits, because they’re honored by the most licensing bodies in most states these days. We understand that the NASW now accepts APA credits for their members’ periodic continuing education requirement.

AMI’s trauma-related training hours may be submitted also to the Association of Traumatic Stress Specialists (ATSS) for certification and re-certification as a Trauma Specialist, Trauma Responder and Trauma Services Specialist.

Husson University’s Counseling and Human Relations graduate program is a NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEPTM) and a co-sponsor of this event/program. Husson University may award clock hours for events or programs that meet NBCC requirements. AMI and ACEO maintain responsibility for the content of this event.
