Workshop FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find the details on the live workshops?

One the individual workshop description pages, you can read an overview of the workshop, including dates offered, starting and ending time, learning goals, and how many Continuing Education (CE) credits will be awarded.

What will I learn as a result of taking a CFBT workshop?

The workshops are designed to provide information that is considered “essential” for practitioners who are committed to a systems oriented approach to helping multi-stressed families and their children. The workshops present this information in the briefest, most engaging, relevant way possible so that ideas are more likely to “stick.”  Specific learning goals are indicated on the workshop description page for each workshop. You will demonstrate your learning in a post-test once you have viewed all the webinars, read the articles and completed any activities associated with a workshop.

For whom are the workshops designed? What skill level do these workshops target?

Our workshops are designed for busy front-line practitioners and supervisors who are interested in providing services that are evidence-informed, meaningful and effective.  All workshops are appropriate for beginner through advanced level practitioners. The content of each workshop is designed to provide important basic knowledge, but is also rich with content that can deepen the skills and understanding of more experienced practitioners.

How long will each course take?

For most participants, the number of hours it takes to complete a course is the same as the CEs offered, or a little longer.

What is the format of the workshop? Will I get to interact with the faculty member?

Our workshops are taught using multiple formats, including lecture, videotaped examples of treatment sessions, and group discussion. All trainers invite participates to raise questions and make comments throughout the training.

Who are the trainers? What are their qualifications?

All faculty are highly experienced practicing family therapists. Specific faculty for each workshop are listed on the workshop description page. For greater detail about the qualifications of each faculty member, please click on the Faculty menu above.

How much do workshops cost? Can I get a refund?

If you are not accessing workshops as part of your employment with a Pennsylvania Family Based Mental Health Services provider, workshop fees are listed on the workshop description pages. As a general policy, refunds are not provided unless the workshop is cancelled. For additional payment and cancellation terms, please see the Cancellations policy on Policies page.

What is required for workshop completion?

See Continuing Education Documentation Policy on Policies page.

After the workshop has been completed, you will be provided with a link to an online course evaluation survey. When this survey is completed and your attendance has been verified, your CEs will be awarded.

What if I’m having technical trouble with a course?

If you have any difficulties either accessing or navigating within a course, please contact [email protected] or click the Contact Us link.  Please allow up to 24 hours (business days) for a response.

How do I request accommodations for a disability?

Given that the online courses occur in the cloud, most accommodations for disabilities would necessarily have to be made on the participant’s end. However, we invite you to contact us ([email protected]) for guidance on what you may need to access the courses more easily if you have a disability. We will make every effort to make accommodations where possible.

How do I get my certificate?

Certificates will be emailed to you after you have attended the entire training and completed the online course evaluation survey.
