Liberation Way is offering Free Continuing Education to mental health professionals and our staff

If you work in any of the various behavioral healthcare disciplines you are well versed in the concept of continuing education.  States issuing licenses/certifications for practice in addictions, mental health, social work, and marriage and family therapy mandate a designated number CEU hours every biennial period. The genuine challenge all therapists face is not how to obtain the correct number of CE hours, but to ensure that specific courses fulfill additional requirements in areas including ethics, cultural competency, and reporting child abuse/neglect. Add to this equation the stress of missing time from work as these courses are not always conveniently available and may not be economical for those holding more than one license at the same time.

For these reasons, a new CE program is being offered for the first time this year at Liberation Way. Ann Marie Bescherer, PhD, MBA, NCC, LPC, LCADC, ACS has been devising original CE coursework in various capacities since 2003 and is thrilled to be fulfilling this need for Liberation Way. Her philosophy in devising original coursework incorporates teaching practical skills that can immediately be transported from lecture to practice. She is passionate about creating curriculum on cutting edge topics that directly impact patient care and ensuring that content conforms with current evidence-based practices.

Offering original courses that are accredited by NAADAC, NASW, and NBCC ensure that CE hours meet national standards for addictions, social work and licensed professional counselors. This means that credits received for program attendance are acceptable to most state boards for license/certification renewal.
