BECOME A CERTIFIED CHILD CUSTODY EVALUATOR!
Child custody evaluation is a challenging, rewarding, interesting, lucrative, and impactful specialization with the forensic mental health evaluation field. Evaluators must not only be knowledgeable of mental health, diagnosis, and evaluation, but must also be experts both in adult and child pathology, healthy childhood development, parenting, and family systems.
This workshop was designed to aid licensed mental health professionals (i.e., clinical mental health counselors, clinical social workers, clinical and counseling psychologists, marriage and family therapists, psychiatrists, and psychiatric nurse practitioners) in expanding their knowledge in the specialty area of child custody.
For experienced evaluators, this workshop may serve as a helpful review, sharpen your skill set, enhance your CV, or provide you with an update.
For evaluators who are new to this speciality, this workshop will help you expand your knowledge in child custody and is part of the certification process to become a Certified Child Custody Evaluator (CCCE) credential. In addition to attending this workshop, evaluators interested in the CCCE credential must already be a Certified Forensic Mental Health Evaluator (CFMHE), complete a 30-hour Child Custody Evaluators Certification Training Homestudy ($299) and pass the post-homestudy test. If you are not a CFMHE but wish to obtain the CCCE credential, you may attend this workshop now but will need to obtain the CFMHE credential before you can be eligible for the CCCE credential.
COST OF WORKSHOP:
The cost for this workshop is $200.
The full cost for the entire CCCE credential process, which includes both this workshop ($200) and the 30-hour homestudy and exam ($299), is $499.

Using theoretical and empirical research, this session will briefly examine the mono‐cultural trans narrative, discuss the social‐cultural‐historical‐political intersectionality of gender and racial identities, and consider implications for clinical practice with trans and gender diverse clients of color.
