“Reader-friendly, content is extremely relevant and information was interesting.”  ~Janice Del Pilar, LMHC, FL

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

Aggression Control and Verbal De-Escalation

CEUs 2

Using video clips from the ground-breaking and controversial film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” this course will make you laugh, think, and understand. You will learn how to reduce conflict with difficult or agitated clients in an inpatient or outpatient setting while protecting yourself, your staff members, and others. (2 CEU hours)

Medical Errors for the Wise Clinician

CEUs 2

This course will look at errors made in the medical field, with special sections for Nutritionists, Dietitians, Midwives and Physical Therapists, including videos, personal stories, fact sheets, and lists of do’s and don’ts.

The statistics are absolutely 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 a single one of your patients become a statistic. Boards governing healthcare providers throughout the nation deserve credit in bringing this shocking information out of the shadows by requiring healthcare providers to be educated, aware and prepared.

The information in this course will put you in a position to save lives.

One Hour Laws and Rules Review for Midwives

CEUs 1

In this course, we will translate Florida Law into plain English, making it EASY for you to understand the legal requirements of your profession.

We tackle the Midwifery Practice Act section by section, review the relevant portions of the Administrative Rule 64B24, and touch on Chapter 456, which contains the violations and penalties you MUST be aware of to protect your license and your patients.

Throughout this review, we try to speak in layperson’s terms (instead of legalese) and attempt to answer common questions you may have about the laws and rules.

Required Renewal Course

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
