Continuing Education


As of May 1st, 2015 Continuing Education for counselors is no longer offered.

From 2005 to 2010 we provided our students with Continuing Education credit through the New Mexico Therapy and Practice Board. From 2010 through April of 2015 we provided our students with Continuing Education credit through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). As of May 1, 2015 we are no longer providing this service.

If you are interested in attending one of our programs and hope to receive Continuing Education credits our suggestion is to print this page and submit it to your local licensing authority. In some cases they will allow you to use our course for Continuing Education. We recommend you include a letter explaining how this course will contribute to your professional development.

What follows is a brief explanation of the material covered in 6-day and 8-day retreats. We have listed the number of hours that were previously approved by NBCC for Continuing Education, which does not include all hours, only those related to professional development.
