Training workshop will offer CE credits for social workers, counselors and therapists in Washington and Oregon
VANCOUVER — Behavioral Health Hospital, Rainier Springs, will host a training for regional health professionals as part of its Continuing Education series, at Royal Oaks Country Club, on Sept. 6 from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
The event will feature M.A. candidate from Claremont Graduate University, Sam Mehoke, who will speak on resilience and the use of positive psychology to foster that resilience in patients.
The event will have a breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 9 a.m. The main event will run from 9 a.m. to noon. There is no cost to attend, however, to RSVP and register, visit the website page here.
Social workers, counselors, marriage therapists, and family therapists can receive three Continuing Education credits if they attend the event. These credits are offered at no charge, but Rainier Springs does suggest speaking with your board for specific requirements on your license or certification.
The day will consist of a presentation of methods for supporting yourself first, through practical tools in connection to positive psychology research, and will then move on to a presentation on how to transfer those skills to supporting patients.
The event is another piece of Rainer Springs’ Continuing Education Series for its partners and community partners in the Pacific Northwest.
The next event will be hosted on Oct. 11 and will focus on Morals, Values and Ethics with presenter Jim Jensen. The event will offer six Continuing Education credits for attending behavioral healthcare professionals.
