The following programs are offered as a series covering the most commonly treated diagnoses in a counseling setting.  Attend just one or all four!  

Click each program title for more information including description, learning objectives, and CEU details.

Each event offered qualifies for a designated number of continuing education clock hours, which often meet requirements for most national, state, and local licensing boards and professional organizations.  Be sure to keep a copy of the registration form specific to the event you attend or print the event description on this site and submit with your certificate of attendance to your professional board for consideration.  

Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board does not require pre-approval of CE programs and does not even offer an approval process for most professions.  They will consider CE programs that cover content specific to each profession's practice, skills, ethics, and knowledge.  Additional information is provided on their website under each profession, typically in the FAQ sections.


Missouri Division of Professional Registration does not require continuing education providers or programs to be approved prior to the event.  They will accept continuing education that is relevant to each profession (i.e. for professional counselors content must be primarily related to counseling; for psychologists content must be mostly psychological; and so on).  CE events are submitted to Missouri for pre-approval for continuing education for social workers.  See each CE program description for approvals.  Additional information is provided on their website.
