The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences is committed to providing continuing education based on psychological principles, policies and guidelines related to current theory, methods and practices.
The goals of our Continuing Education program are to:
Psychologists, trainees and other healthcare providers
All continuing education topics are intended to maintain, develop and increase conceptual and applied competencies that are relevant to psychological practice, education and science. CE programs may include content related to well-established psychological principles, or may be based on content that extends current theory, method or practice. CE programs may provide information related to ethical, legal, statutory or regulatory policies, guidelines and standards that impact psychology.
The program offers support for regularly scheduled series, lectures and conferences, and supports some video conferencing.
