Do your event attendees need CE hours?

We can help! The Phoenix Center for Experiential Trauma Therapy has been pre-approved as a provider of professional continuing education (CEs) in Pennsylvania for psychologists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors. We are available to co-sponsor your events, allowing your participants to accrue the CE’s they need for license renewals. CE sponsorship is for single courses/program; sponsorship through our organization does not suggested that we are lending or transferring our approval status, only that Phoenix Center is providing CE credits for a single course or program. Access our application below (works best on google chrome).

Please read our agreements and understandings for hosting CE events before you fill out our application form. Keep scrolling to read!

We are able to provide CE’s for :

  • PA Social Workers
  • PA Counselors
  • PA Marriage & Family Therapists
  • PA Psychologist
  • APA CEs – (separate application with higher cost)
    • APA CE hours are automatically accepted by most state boards for psychologists, social work, counseling, and marriage/family therapy

Why should your practice or organization provide Continuing Education Units or CE’s?

Providing CEs for your events will increase the attractiveness of the event for potential attendees, increase the credibility/professionalism of your event, and enhance the value your workshop offers to attendees. Professionals are required to obtain CE’s to keep their licensure and certifications active. Due to our evolving society, theories, and practices, professionals must keep up with day-to-day innovating education in order to serve clients. Your practice or organization can provide your expertise to professionals in the field and contribute to their professional competence.
