Bring Mindfulness to Your Work and Your Life
Many of the retreats, courses and workshops we offer at Copper Beech Institute develop knowledge and skills that nurses, counselors, social workers, psychologists, therapists, coaches and other professionals can apply directly to their work. These skills can help you respond to situations with greater compassion, resilience and equanimity. Several of our programs are also eligible for Continuing Education Credits (CECs) through our partnership with the National Association of Social Workers. For a $20 flat fee, CECs can be awarded to professionals who attend the specific programs listed below.
Professionals designations eligible to earn CECs include:
- American Holistic Nursing Association (AHNA)
- Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW)
- Licensed Marriage & Family Therapists (LMFT)
