Continuing Education

Two professors chattingThe Michigan School of Psychology is proud to offer continuing education workshops that provide ongoing skill development and training on diverse topics. Individuals with careers in health and human services continue their education for many reasons. For some it is to maintain their license or credentials. But continuing education also contributes to their growing as a lifelong learner and providing them emerging information about best practices in their chosen field.

Opportunities are also provided for the general public to participate in educational workshops.

Psychologists and limited licensed psychologists must complete 30 hours of continuing education in activities approved by the State of Michigan Board of Psychology, under administrative rule 338.2581, in the two years immediately preceding the application for renewal beginning September 2016. MSP workshops are designed to meet the continuing education requirements as established under these new rules. For more information on the administrative rules from the Board of Psychology, see Psychology Frequently Asked Questions on the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) website and the Michigan Psychological Association’s summary.

Addiction professionals are also required to obtain certification with respect to their specialties. As a part of the certification process, professionals must complete trainings/education regarding certain topics, with each credential requiring a different amount of training hours. Visit Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP) for specific requirements. MCBAP approved events meet criteria that satisfy education and continuing education requirements for the CADC-M, CADC, CAADC, CCDP, and CCDP-D.
