Important CEU Information (Updated 10/20/20)

On-Demand Webinars: Defined as “asynchronous” workshops that are prerecorded, and you may watch them at your leisure on your own time.

The Georgia Board of Professional Counselors, Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists:

For Masters Licensed Therapists, both On-Demand ("Asynchronous") Webinars and "Related" hours are allowed to comprise up to 15 hours of the total 35 hours required per renewal period (10 hours of On-Demand are expressly permitted, and the extra 5 would be your optional Independent Study hours).

Workshop Description:

The DBT in Clinical Practice presentation will explore mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, radical acceptance, and interpersonal effectiveness. We will review the basic concepts and terminology of DBT. Participants will learn how to apply DBT principles in their personal clinical practice settings. Examples of group exercises and content application will be provided.

By attending this presentation, the participants will have a better understanding of DBT concepts and terminology. Ways to apply the therapy to individual practice will be illuminated, which are the techniques that are best practices with people who have come from invalidating or abusive environments. Participants will have a strong foundation of DBT concepts as a result of this workshop.
