INSTITUTE FOR PSYCHOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT
IPA offers continuing education classes for professional counselors, school counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, and psychologists.

In-person continuing education events are regularly scheduled and also scheduled based upon demand and/or specific request by an organization. Events are held throughout the Kansas City metro area and can also be held at your facility.

IPA provides training to organizations upon specific request or as a result of consultation services. Training can be scheduled at your location, at an offsite location of your choosing, or at a facility that IPA has partnerships with. Training topics include, but are not limited to, trauma-informed care, clinical assessment, treatment planning, staff burnout and self care, mental health awareness, and any topic on our Continuing Education page. Let us know if you have a specific request and we will strive to assist with that too. These individualized training classes are useful for mental health facilities, substance abuse treatment centers, physician practices, hospitals, dental offices, non-profit organizations, schools, and any organization serving our community. Training is about supporting staff and creating an informed and effective work environment, so it is also relevant for organizations that do not directly serve clients, patients, or customers.
