CPI continues to serve as a key resource to NYS OMH in its mission to promote widespread use of evidence-based practices throughout the state by offering continuing education credits to NYS physicians, licensed mental health counselors, licensed social workers and substance abuse counselors.
CPI’s trainings are available to practitioners and clinicians working in OMH- licensed, OASAS-certified or NYS VA programs. Our trainings are designed to support the professional development of staff and the overall health of the program. Directors, supervisors, and program managers are invited to request access for their department’s employees. If you work outside of NYS or work as a private practitioner or for an agency licensed or certified by an entity other than OMH, OASAS or the VA, we cannot offer CEUS to you at this time. If you would like to be informed of when this changes please email Tiffany Rasmussen, LMSW at Rasmuss@nyspi.columbia.edu. She will contact you in the case our trainings become available to professionals in non-OMH, OASAS or the VA settings.
CPI trainings that provide continuing education are currently offered in the following formats: Live in-person, Live Webinars, Self-Study Modules, and Self Study Archived Webinars.
