Oops! Something went wrong while submitting the form.

This 45-hour course is designed to meet the regulatory board requirements to become a board-approved supervisor with BMFT, BBHT, or BOSW. It is not intended to meet requirements for AAMFT supervision training.

(details: BMFT and BOSW require 30 hours of training, BBHT requires 45 hours training.)
Did you know that as an LMFT or LICSW board-approved supervisor, you can apply to ALSO be BBHT-approved and supervise folks seeking LPCC licensure? Pretty slick! But you need 45 hours of training. So if you attend this training as an LMFT or LICSW, you will have the flexibility to also apply to BBHT and supervise even more folks! Wonderful!)

-- Approved by the Board of Social Work (Ellie is provider # CE 2205)
-- Pending for the Board of Marriage and Family Therapy (application 2/25/2022)
-- Pending for the Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy (application 2/25/2022)

But $750 is a lot of money, what does that get me?

Fair point! It is a lot of money. (Also a tax write off, holla "Continuing Education"!)

This $750 gets you:

1. Ooodles of training content, handouts, robust discussion and interaction, introspection
2. Breakfast AND lunch for 5 days! (probably Cafe Zupas and Chipotle!)
3. A copy of The Contemporary Relational Supervisor book ($40 value!)
4. 45 board-approved CEUs (jeepers that's a lot! You'd be good for the next 2 years!)
