CEUs Offered for Mindfulness-Based Programs

NOTE: These are programs I offered in Florida from 2004 to 2008. I am hoping to offer many of them in the coming years in Louisville. Let me know if you are interested in participating OR if you are currently a CEU provider (or know of one locally) who would consider working with me to bring these powerful programs to the mental health professionals in the Louisville area. Please drop me a note.

CEU Sponsor

The CEU programs that I offered while in practice in Florida were provided under the sponsorship of Professional Counseling Resources (ID # BAP348, CE Broker #50-1633). A Certificate of Completion were provided for participants' records.

About the Home Study Materials and Tests

Many programs have a Home Study portion consisting of articles and multiple choice and true-false questions drawn directly from the articles. There are 10 or 15 questions for each article and each earns 2 CEUs. You must score at least 80% correct on each test to be awarded the CEUs. If you fail to meet the 80% criteria on the first examination, you will be allowed a second try.

A Note About Missed Sessions and/or Failed Home Study Units

Florida statute covering CEUs states that no partial credit can be awarded for CEU courses. My programs offering more than 4 CEUs are designed so that you can miss up to 4 hours of in-class program sessions or fail up to 2 Home Study units (or a combination of one each, maximum of 4 make-up credits) and still earn full credit for the program.

Missed hours can be made up by attending one or both portions of the optional day-long retreat (i.e. 10 am to 5 pm) associated with the program (i.e. 2 hours per each 3 hour portion of the retreat). For program offering 4-hours or less credit, no make-up for missed hours is allowed.
