Drk K: Do you do continued training?

I completed 158.5 hours of them over the last five years.

Here is a sampling:

Rethinking Trauma (ongoing) Online training in the neuro-psychology and neurophysiology of trauma.

“COLLABORATIVE COUPLE THERAPY” with Dan Wile, Ph.D., Nashville, TN: October 18, 2014

Externship in Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy (Sue Johnson, Ph.D.) 2014 Four-Day training

Core Skills 2017 (in progress).

I did a Telemental Health (aka “e-therapy” or “online therapy”) Conference Summit that was fascinating. It had many presenters on a variety of topics. For those who think “If you know how to Skype you can do Telemental Health,” these 20 hours told a different tale! They changed the way I practiced. They weren’t the first training I’ve done in telemental health, however. I began taking CEU training years ago, when it was still a “new, new” thing.
