    The Education and Conference Committee will offer a Summer Series of five weekly sessions, during the month of August (Mondays, noon-2:00 PM).  Each session will be initially delivered "live" online, with an online audience, via GotoPresentations   In addition, we will record each session to post online for "on demand" viewing.  We will have 3 sessions on Ethics (each 2 hours)  and 1 session on suicide intervention (2 hours).  Also, we will offer  1 free session on The Essentials of Clinical Mental Health Counseling to anyone who registers for a session in the Summer Series (2 hours) .  Attendees who successfully complete an online survey for a session will receive a CE certificate via email.  

    Presentations:  Janine Wanlass, Ph.D. on Ethics and Telehealth; Robin Tracey, CMHC on LGBTQIA+ and Ethics; Ken Roach, Ph.D. on The new 2020 AMHCA Ethics Code; Talysha Tingey, CMHC and Amber Willis, Ph.D. on Suicide and Teenagers; Gray Ottis, Ph.D. on The Essentials of Clinical Mental Health Counseling

    There are minimal costs associated with the Summer Series.  We will purchase GotoPresentations for 2 months, which costs $118.  We will market using the DOPL mail lists that we purchased for the March conference (DOPL has OKed that).  And, we can store the sessions free online. Many thanks to Jim for researching and setting up the technology for this!  


    Fees:  $120 Non-Member Series, $90 Member Series, $50 Student Series, $25 Non-Member Session, $20 Member Session, $10 Student Session.  


     Given that license renewal is in September, we anticipate that these topics will be in demand, especially if we advertise soon.  If we have the "ok" to proceed, I will confirm the presenters and we will begin marketing ASAP.
