About the Event
Cognitive Behavior Institute is excited to welcome Lindsey Venesky, PhD, NCSP for a live interactive webinar on: Why Are Relationships So Difficult? Understanding and Supporting Adult Clients Struggling with Attachment
Time: 12-3pm EST
Credit Hours: 3 Clinical CEs
Much of the research and clinical practice involving attachment focuses on the impact on infants and young children. However, both research and practice point to the ongoing impact of attachment throughout the lifespan (Brenner, et al., 2021; Morales-Vives, et al., 2021). Whereas secure attachment often results in healthy and supportive relationships throughout life, insecure attachment can lead to issues related to self-esteem, unhealthy relationships, and mental health issues. Many individuals who present for treatment in clinical settings have histories of insecure attachment, although this is unlikely to be the presenting problem (Ferraro & Taylor, 2021; Reiner, et al., 2016). By better addressing attachment concerns, mental health clinicians can provide more targeted and effective treatment to the clients. This training aims to support mental health clinicians in identifying and addressing attachment-related concerns with their clients. Topics will include attachment styles in adulthood, assessment for attachment, and specific therapeutic strategies.

Social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors in Pennsylvania can receive continuing education from providers approved by the American Psychological Association.

The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) has a process for approving individual programs or providers for continuing education through their Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. ACE approved providers and individual courses approved by ASWB are not accepted by every state and regulatory board for continuing education credits for social workers. Every US state other than New York accepts ACE approval for social workers in some capacity: New Jersey only accepts individually approved courses for social workers, rather than courses from approved providers. The West Virginia board requires board approval for live courses, but accepts ASWB ACE approval for other courses for social workers. For more information, please see https://www.aswb.org/ace/ace-jurisdiction-map/. Whether or not boards accept ASWB ACE approved continuing education for other professionals such as licensed professional counselors or licensed marriage and family therapists varies by jurisdiction. To determine if a course can be accepted by your licensing board, please review your board’s regulations or contact them. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit.
