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). Therefore, this workshop would be counted as part of your allotted 15 "Related Hours." Please see our Live Webinars for Core and Ethics hours. For details regarding this new rule from the Secretary of State, click here.

The Georgia Board of Psychologists:

Has approved Live Webinars and On-Demand Webinars to be counted the same as live workshops for the remainder of this renewal period (including Ethics!!!). We are still awaiting The Board’s decision regarding the next renewal cycle.

Educational Objectives:

  • Discuss how to generate and narrow down a book topic idea and how to position it for success even before starting to write.
  • Explore the writing process and how to get out of one’s own way and avoid getting stuck.
  • Learn about the different publishing paths and the basics of book marketing, which all authors have to do whether they’re traditionally or independently published.

Workshop Description:

Having a published book can serve as a powerful calling card and position you as an expert in your field. Many mental health practitioners have an idea – or several – for a manuscript but don’t know how to get started. Or perhaps they have a draft but don’t know what to do with it or how to navigate the twists and turns of the publishing world. In this workshop, traditionally and independently published (aka, “hybrid”) author Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M., will share her extensive knowledge of the writing process and publishing options to help you make good choices from the beginning and come out with the best book and publishing experience possible.

Presented by: Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M.

Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. is a licensed psychologist and a certified behavioral sleep medicine specialist. She started her professional career as the clinical director of a sleep disorders center and founded Atlanta Insomnia & Behavioral Health Services, P.C. in 2010 in order to focus specifically on the intersection of sleep and psychopathology.

Dr. Bartolucci has a not-so-secret other life as a U.S.A. Today bestselling fiction author under the pen name Cecilia Dominic. She was originally published by Samhain Publishing, and when they closed, she got her rights back and continued publishing on her own. As of summer 2020, she has released sixteen novels and novellas, which have been well-reviewed by outlets such as Fresh Fiction and Library Journal. She is also the author of two nonfiction books under her real name - Business Basics for Private Practice: A Guide for Mental Health Practitioners (2017; Routledge) and Better Sleep for the Overachiever, which will be released in September.

Dr. Bartolucci is a sought-after speaker and conference panelist and has taught workshops and classes for several organizations such as the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine, the Atlanta School of Sleep Medicine, and the Georgia Psychological Association. She is also adjunct faculty at Emory University and lectures to the fellows and psychology graduate students. As Cecilia Dominic, she has been an attending professional and/or guest at DragonCon, JordanCon, MidSouthCon, AnachroCon, ConCarolinas, and the Steampunk World’s Fair.
