Medical Errors for the Wise Therapist

CEUs 2

This course will look at the staggering numbers of errors made in the medical field, and then concentrate on errors made by therapists in the mental health field, including errors in documentation, dual relationships, handling suspected abuse, domestic violence, substance abuse, assessing mental illness, maintaining confidentiality, and assessing and treating suicide. Students will come away with their eyes open and a toolbox of solutions and preventative measures. Learning materials include videos, personal stories, fact sheets, and lists of do’s and don’ts.

The statistics are staggering. The number of people killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars pales in comparison to the number of people killed by preventable medical errors in this country every year. Don’t let even one of your patients become a statistic. Boards governing healthcare providers throughout the nation deserve credit for bringing this shocking information out of the shadows by requiring healthcare providers to be educated, aware, and prepared. The information in this will put you in a position to save lives.

“Best law and rules training I have taken.”  ~Margaret Haynes, Leon, FL

"The course was very informative and well written. When I had questions about the materials the authors were immediately responsive and encouraging. I am a seasoned therapist and have found the mandatory courses to be repetitive, but this course was relevant and updated with information that was applicable to my practice."     ~Mary Griffiths, LMHC, Seminole, FL

“I believe the course was extremely informative with a tremendous amount of information. My favorite part was the way things were broken down so simplistic it was easy to learn and understand.” ~Nathalie Viau, RCSWI, FL

" I really enjoyed this. I think the board should make us take it each renewal as there have been so many changes recently especially with COVID."  ~Amanda Frye, LCSW, Polk Co, FL

Substance Abuse and Addiction

CEUs 3

If you are a psychotherapist, you will counsel clients who are abusing drugs and alcohol. This course contains basic information about substance abuse as well as more advanced information, including prescription drug abuse, which is rampant and increasing rapidly. The material will give you a basic understanding of the prevalence of these problems, how to screen, how to recognize denial, and how to make appropriate referrals.

Taken many courses with these professional and knowledgeable providers before and will continue to do so!”  ~-Nancy Tetum, LCSW, Hillsborough Co, FL 


“Excellent organization. Good resources.”  ~Sheila Bilak, LCSW, Alachua Co, FL 


“Valuable information. Please continue to provide thought provoking CEUs.”  ~Nicole Taylor, LMHC

Traumatic Soul Injury

CEUs 4

This course is vital for therapists and healthcare providers. As our field advances, we are learning more and more how trauma affects the brain and contributes to poor health, violent relationships, substance abuse, and the self-defeating behaviors many of our clients engage in. As a psychotherapist, assessor, or healthcare provider, you encounter individuals every day who are struggling to overcome trauma of some type or another. For many, alcohol and drugs are the method of coping. And while it is easy to be judgmental, understanding the horrific trauma endured by these individuals and the ultimate effect on their lives can make us much more understanding, much less judgmental, and much more equipped to render the help they need … and deserve.

Reviews

“I have taken several other medical marijuana courses, but this one was the best by far.   ~Rebecca Sherry, LMHC, Lee Co., Florida 

"This is a great course in order to have a true and thorough understanding of how we are progressing in knowledge based on research. We can't prove the benefits of CBD and Marijuana, but we can see how it may be contributing to healing. More testing is needed, but the team allowed the reader to think and process. The greatest healing for the client is the therapist listening, non-judgmental, and open to the client's resiliency. Susan and Matt have done this beautifully. Gratitude. As a pastor and LMHC, I see how a simple referral to discuss the issue is all I might need to do to help wholeness and love to come about."  ~Ronald Camarda, LMHC, Duval Co, FL

 "This course is chock full of the most up to date information on the subject. It challenges many outdated conclusions that need to be changed."  ~Jacqueline McCollum-Bridges, LMHC, Lake County, FL

Thank you. I will take more courses from them.”  ~Carol Murphy, LMHC, Florida
