Each of our workshops has a balance of didactic, experiential and interactive elements.

The workshops can be taken in any order, except for the Advanced Experiential, which requires at least two previous workshops.  

We are qualified to provide 13 CEUs for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCs and LEDs for each workshop taken (CAMFT Approved CE Provider #134393*).

Many other states will also give CEUs if contacted by the individual therapist or sponsoring organization. We give workshops in many cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. See schedule for details.

We look forward to connecting with you and
