Clinical Practice Enrichment Series
Continuing Education Workshops For Mental Heath Professionals
What Is Clinical Practice Enrichment Series?
Welcome to the Clinical Practice Enrichment Series (CPES) website. CPES has been providing continuing education training programs for mental health practitioners since 1998. CPES offers CE programs in Philadelphia, the greater Delaware Valley, New York, and the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Ellen L. Wright is the Director of CPES and Dr. Kristin Kopple is the Associate Director.
Our workshops are designed to address theoretical and practical issues that confront mental health practitioners in their daily work. The presentations endeavor to provide current, evidence-based information and new skills that are applicable to clinical settings. Recognizing that attending workshops is an investment of the participants’ valuable time and money, CPES seeks to present workshop topics unique among the offerings commonly available to professionals.
These are some of the topics from past workshops:
- Nancy McWilliams’ Love, Work, and Play: Redefining Mental Health
- Can Positivity in Psychotherapy be Psychodynamic?
- The Stressed Years of Their Lives:The Launch to Adulthood
- Scars That Tell A Story: Teens and Self-Injury
- Psychotherapy In The Digital Age
- The Myth of the Selfless Therapist
- Advanced Hot topics in Ethics: A Vignette-based Workshop
- Treating Chronically Suicidal Patients: Theory, Practice and Therapist Self-Care
Feedback from our participants often guides us in determining our future schedule of presentations.
Continuing Education Accreditation
All of the CPES programs provide CE credits required for licensure for psychologists. Dr. Wright, director of CPES, is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Dr. Wright maintains responsibility for the programs and their contents. CPES regularly provides training programs in Ethics that meet the Pennsylvania State Board of Psychology requirements for continuing education in Ethics. Whenever possible, CPES provides CE credits to other mental health professionals attending our training sessions.
According to the National Association of Social Workers, continuing education programs sponsored by providers approved by the American Psychological Association qualify for Social Work CEUs. Therefore CPES continuing education credits may be used to satisfy Social Work CEU requirements.
Why Choose Clinical Practice Enrichment Training Workshops?
Working in the mental health profession can be an isolating experience. The Clinical Practice Enrichment Series offers an opportunity for professional networking within the context of a unique workshop experience based on the latest clinical practice research and publications. Unlike large, lecture-style programs and online CE programs, CPES offers an interactive training experience in which the presenters invite audience participation and promote thought-provoking discussion. Attending a CPES program affords access to locally and nationally renowned authors and clinicians, while simultaneously enhancing your network of colleague-practitioners.
Comments from past participants include “Extremely valuable workshop" and “Flexible and responsive faculty.”
