So much of the time it feels like we’re on our own in the helping field — trying our best, with what little we have, to meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable members of our community

WeekendCEU provides continuing education for clinical and non-clinical mental health professionals and front-line volunteers who have a role in fostering the well-being of individuals and groups in the Chattanooga area. This includes substance abuse counselors, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors, social workers, and psychologists. It also includes a wide range of other paid and unpaid human services personnel.
Regardless of what is available in the market, most mental health professionals select continuing education opportunities based not on quality and content but on convenience and cost. This enables them to maintain their credentials. However, it defeats the underlying purpose of continuing education — namely, to improve the services received by their clients. For that to happen, continuing education that is accessible also needs to be effective.
WeekendCEU offers regular continuing education opportunities in the Chattanooga area that are taught by national experts and that address topics that are locally relevant, evidence based, and may lead to advanced training and certification.
As the name implies, our classes are held during the weekend. This makes them convenient to the largest number of mental health professionals and front-line volunteers — many who have obligations during the workweek that are difficult to set aside. Most classes are either 10 hours (1 CEU) or 20 hours (2 CEUs) and provide avenues for advanced training and certification. All topics are thoroughly grounded in research with substantial track-records of effective applications.
In 2018 (our inaugural year) we will be offering workshops on:
- Transformative Race Talk
- The Neuroscience of Mind
- Coping, Resilience & Adversity
- Mindfulness & Trauma
- The Common Factors of What Works
- Group Theory & Facilitation
- Existential Analysis & Logotherapy
- Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy
- FIRO-B & TJTA Administration & Interpretation
- Making Sense of The DSM-5
- Ethical Decision Making Models
- Working Through Vicarious Trauma
