CEU’s consistent with the development
of competencies in the science and evidence-based treatment of
individuals with Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders.
The benefits of attending trainings, conferences, seminars, and workshops either locally, nationally, or internationally are unlimited. Just a few include receiving training alongside colleagues/friends, being awarded CEU’s, networking with other professionals, enjoying the camaraderie of people with common goals, and traveling to other locations for a combined vacation or visiting family.
Yet, there may be times when attending trainings/conferences either in-state or nationally is not possible. This could pose a challenge from time to time for professionals seeking CEU’s.
Develop on-line competency tests that simultaneously offer education on Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Disorders and offer Continuing Education Units. The text for the exams is The Basics, Second Edition: A Curriculum for Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Disorders and is available at rhondamckillipandthebasics.com, or by emailing Rhonda McKillip at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling McKillip & Associates at (509) 258-7314.
Gratefully, Eric Moss initiated the CEU examinations on THE BASICS, Second Edition. Eric is a Licensed Advanced Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor with over 16 years experience. He currently works for the Kern County Mental Health Department in Bakersfield, CA. Thanks Eric!
Continue to build on the helpful ideas of Eric Moss to create on-line competency exams worthy of the approval of NAADAC for CEU’s and of other distinguished credentialing boards. Write the exams in a very comprehensive way so the exam itself provides a learning experience as well as that of the text for the exams and the tests.
