Course Content

We offer a wide variety of courses meant to meet the needs of our customers, most notably our refresher courses for licensure as well as all state mandated courses to become license eligable.  

Ethics and Boundaries

 

Learn the myriad ways our colleagues have discovered to put their practice, their license, and their wealth at risk! How to Stay Out of Trouble will give clinicians the tools they need and information they require to recognize the ethical and legal boundaries of their profession and to steer clear of situations that invite complaints to the Board and malpractice suits by the lawyers. Taught by a former County Judge and attorney and his wife, a licensed mental health counselor with over 20 years experience, and founder of the very first State-certified Batterers Intervention Program. This interactive and fun workshop will use case studies, humor, and group exercises to help you protect what you have worked hard to achieve.

Domestic Violence 

 

This course presents critical information for healthcare providers about domestic violence, written by award-winning instructors (one a former police officer, prosecutor and judge and the other a licensed mental health counselor and jury trial consultant). The audience will come away with a new-found understanding regarding the myths and realities of domestic violence and how it affects us all.

 

Domestic violence is so pervasive that there is one simple truth as a mental health counselor that you MUST know: You must have a thorough working knowledge of domestic violence if you intend to be a competent professional. Whether you see primarily adults, children, the elderly, singles or couples, domestic violence affects them all. And even substance abuse professionals must know about domestic violence!

HIV/AIDS for Therapists 

 

This course satisfies the Florida 491 Board requirements for registered interns, as well as requirements for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Counseling through DCF. You will learn all about HIV/AIDs, history, treatment, confidentiality, legal and ethical issues for therapists and more.

 

 

HIV/AIDS for Medical Professionals  

 

In this course you will learn all about HIV/AIDs, history, treatment, confidentiality, legal and ethical issues for medical professionals and more.

Medical Errors

 

This course will look at errors made in the medical field, and then errors made in the mental health field. 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. The Florida Board deserves 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 can and will put you in a position to save lives.
