- Specialty in Anxiety Management (SAM) Certificate
This Specialty Certificate is comprised of three continuing education workshops. Each workshop is one day (6.5 hours).
Upon completion of all 3 workshops, you will be awarded the Speciality in Anxiety Manamgnet (SAM) certification. The SAM certificate is a total of three days training (19.5 hours of continuing education credits) to be completed over a one year (2 Semesters) period.
The SAM Certificate Includes:
- Practical Treatments for Anxiety and Panic Attacks (APW)
- Mindful Meditation as Treatment for Anxiety, Depression, and Addiction (MMW)
- Integrating the Science of Neuroplasticity Into Your Counselling (NPW)
Although recommended you complete these course in the order listed (AWP, MMW, and NPW) this order is not mandatory. You have a full year (2 semesters) to complete all three days of training. Upon completion of each segment, you will be awarded a certificate of completion as a record of your 6.5 hours of continuing education.
There is a substantial discount to apply for this certification by registering for all three one-day segments at the same time. It is expected the three courses will be completed over two consecutive semesters.
Your SAM certificate will be awarded separately from your three one-day Certificates of Attendance, and upon completion of all three segments.
You save $100.00 by pre-registering for these three days. Pre-registration cost is $647.00 (+HST) for all 3 workshops INCLUDING the CEU certificates. Please enter the three dates for each segment you wish to attend in the free form area as you checkout or you may call to register 1-800-699-3396
Does this Certificate really improve my counseling skills?:
“I’ve been helping individuals with mental health for over 10 years and even after caring for hundreds of clients this workshop provided me with new and unique solutions to help my clients – particularly those with hard to manage anxiety and panic attacks.” “I’m looking at how to treat in a totally new and different way!”
“I was thoroughly engaged every minute of this workshop and honestly, my takeaways were well beyond what I expected.” “Bravo, I will be back!”
