Our Continuing Education Courses
for Practicing Sustainable Mental Health
Helping Others Prepare for a Dramatically Changing World
"Each local community will need a resilient emotionally and mentally hearty population to chose confidence and determination over sorrow, despair, grief, rage, terror, and depression during the challenge of crises and change underway today." Sarah EdwardsAll our courses are certified for continuing education credit by the state of California for LCSW's and MFT's.* Professionals from other fields like teachers, massage therapists, addiction counselors, coaches and career counselors also enjoy our CE courses.
Some say there will be no mental health care system in the future because given ecological and economic challenges our current practices are unsustainable. Yet most agree the need for mental health care is more acute and widespread as the strain these challenges place on our daily lives increases each day over the years to come. (See why)
To meet this we need to quickly grasp adapt the way we practice and start now to play a vital role in enabling our clients to develop the inner resilience to create sustainable lifestyles in sustainable the local neighborhoods and small communities where they live.
Our (CE) programs are designed to help us do that. They focus on four areas of knowledge we, as helping professionals, need to prepare to help others move through distress and anxiety into action. To review and select courses click on the green buttons below:
