2017 Registration for all Online Trainings

All online trainings are now accessible in NY State.
Until the end of 2017,  all trainings will be open to all (LCSW, LMSW, and CASAC) clinicians. 
Best Practice Trainers and Connections Counseling have collaborated to complete a national study with the CBT training. Results are published on the site. The study demonstrates that all clinicians who complete the CBT training and pass the post-test have increased confidence in the performance of CBT with substance use disorders. In addition, most (93%) of the clinicians who complete the training are satisfied with the experience, rating the training “good” or “excellent”.
