Continuing Education Credits

 

Continuing Education is being coordinated and sponsored by the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers. A $45.00 administrative processing fee, payable at time of registration, for psychology, social worker and certified counselor CE’s is being assessed by ATSA. The assessed fee will be $55.00 if registering for CE’s at the conference.
 

Conference Goals and Objectives
The goal of the Annual Research and Treatment Conference is to advance the knowledge and skills of professionals providing services in the field of sexual abuse.

With interdisciplinary approaches, the sessions will present current and relevant research and explore the implications for its use in clinical intervention, proactive intervention techniques and the implementation of solutions to advance the scope of sexual abuse treatment, management and prevention.

Psychologists
ATSA (Provider #1966) is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer Continuing Education Credits for psychologists. ATSA maintains responsibility for the program. Attendance at the Pre-Conference Seminars earns 6 CE credits for a full-day session; 3 CE credits for a half-day session. Attendance at the 2½ day conference earns 12 credits.

Certified Counselors
ATSA (Provider #6365) is an NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements.  The ACEP solely is responsible for all aspects of the program.  Attending Pre-Conference Seminars earns 6 CE credits for a full-day session and 3 CE credits for a half-day session.  Attending the 2½ day conference earns 12 credits. 

LCSW’s and MFCC’s
ATSA (Provider #4524) is approved by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences to offer Continuing Education Credits for Social Workers and Marriage and Family Counselors. Attendance at Pre-Conference Seminars earns 6 CE credits for a full-day session, 3 CE credits for a half-day session. Attendance at the 2½ day conference earns 12 credits.

Application, for a maximum of 18 credits, is also being made to the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) for CE credits for states who do not recognize California’s certification as listed above. Because of special requirements by the Ohio Social Worker Organization, ATSA cannot offer CE credits for Ohio Social Workers.

All other Social Workers should check with their state board to determine if accreditation from NASW is accepted in your state. If not, please contact ATSA and we will make every effort to fulfill the requirements in order to get approval.

Beginning with the 2009 conference, ATSA is providing continuing education for the annual ATSA research and treatment conference.
