Online Continuing Education

Our online courses are designed for busy front-line practitioners and supervisors who work with multi-stressed families and their children. 

We are a specialized training program, led by faculty with many years of experience practicing and teaching family therapy, who have first-hand knowledge of the challenges therapists working in the home and community regularly face.  The practitioners and supervisors who take our courses are committed to providing the best treatment possible and want their clinical work to be grounded in sound clinical theory and research, yet may have little time to attend live workshops.

We sort through the mountain of published articles relevant to eco-systemic approaches to the treatment of children, adolescents, and their families, then create courses that focus on the most essential information you need to be effective in your practice.  Ideas are presented in the briefest, most engaging, relevant way possible so that information is more likely to “stick.”

What is unique about our on-line training program?

Our online training goes well beyond traditional webinars.  We have organized the topics in our online library as short courses.  There are usually several 10 to 30 minute webinars in each course that address different aspects of the topic.  Downloadable readings and reference lists are included with each subtopic to complement and deepen the information presented in the webinars. Links are also provided to other web-based material related to the course topic, such as YouTube videos, NPR podcasts, and TED Talks, when available.
