In California licensed Marriage and Family Therapists are required to complete 36 hours of continuing education every two years. I’m coming up on my renewal next month and thought people might be interested in what courses I’ve been taking during this last renewal period.
This last period I tried to choose courses that I thought would benefit the Running + Therapy model of therapy I’m trying to promote. I took a couple of courses on Somatic Therapy and Mindfulness. Running + Therapy, I believe, is a form of Somatic Therapy combined with Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, and highlighted by other insight oriented theories.
Other courses I took based on topics that often come up in my practice and that are of particular interest to me.
Law and Ethics is an important course to take to keep up with best practices and standards of care.
I have a growing list of courses I’m interested in for the upcoming renewal period!
