Professional Development

Professional development is paramount in staying up-to-date with current trends and emerging research, and in learning proven, effective approaches and techniques.

The Department of Counseling and Educational Development (CED) fosters this career-long commitment to professional development by offering the following opportunities:

  • Approved Clinical Supervisor Training – Developed by CED, this 45-hour training meets the educational requirements needed to apply for the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential offered by the Center for Credentialing & Education (a corporate affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors). Content is presented through interactive activities, informative videos, counseling case demonstrations, reflective journal prompts and relevant external online resources.
  • Professional Development Workshop Series – CED sponsors and co-sponsors professional development programs to provide high-quality training to counselors, counselors-in-training, supervisors, and other helping professionals. Opportunities are announced through various professional organizations and media outlets as they are scheduled.
