Not Too Boring Laws and Rules of the Board (3 CEUs) and Domestic Violence: Understanding Men Who Batter and the Women Who Love Them (2 CEUs). Both are required every 3rd biennium, but we advise to take them more often for general credit. The laws are always changing, so we must stay on top of it. And domestic violence is touching the lives of many of our clients, and we may not even know it.
This package includes:
This course is required every third renewal period and contains all relevant statutory and rule updates in Chapters 456 and 491, F.S., and Rule Title 64B4, F.A.C. Additionally, in this course, written by Matt McMillan (a former police officer, prosecutor, and county judge) and Susan McMillan, LMHC, CAP (Co-founder of Florida’s first 8 hour Laws and Rules Course), you will review the ins and outs of confidentiality, privileged communication, abuse reporting, and more — in other words, when to keep quiet, and when to speak up. This course can save lives and may save you from a lawsuit.
This lawsuit-avoidance course is required every third renewal period and contains all relevant statutory and rule updates. (3 CEU hours)
“Best law and rules training I have taken.” ~Margaret Haynes, Leon, FL

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

“This course was SPOT ON!! I knew a lot about domestic violence and physical/mental abuse (especially being in an abusive marriage and also having abusive family members) but I could not believe how many times it was 100% accurate and so informative about EVERY aspect of it.

“These two presenters were a hit! Matt and Susan McMillan were the most professional, efficient, interesting and helpful presenters I've come across in a long time --- and I took over twice as many CEU's as I needed, so I've had my share of boring presenters! They captured my interest from the first minute and kept it till the last! Excellent course. Thank you!”
~ Dr. Virginia Crist, Ph.D., LMFT, CST, LMFT, Palm Beach County, FL
