Continuing Education Courses for Licensed Social Workers

Adults (Age 18-60)
Virtual Space


All NYS licensed psychologists, social workers or mental health practitioners are required to complete continuing education and must complete 3 hours of acceptable course work in appropriate professional boundaries, in each 3-year registration period starting April 1, 2023. The Board of Regents approved regulations on October 4, 2022, that requires psychologists, social workers and mental health practitioners licensed and registered under Articles 153, 154 or 163 of the Education Law, to complete 3 hours of acceptable continuing education on issues related to maintaining appropriate professional boundaries between licensees and patients. The course work must be taken from a provider approved by the Department and counts toward the 36 hours of continuing education required in each 36-month registration period. The regulations apply to each psychologist, licensed master social worker, licensed clinical social worker, mental health counselor, marriage and family therapist, creative arts therapist and psychoanalyst licensed and registered for registration periods starting on or after April 1, 2023. Licensees with a registration period commencing prior to April 1, 2023, do not have to complete coursework in appropriate boundaries until their next registration period. A licensee does not need to submit continuing education certificates to the State Board, unless audited by the Board or applying for a delayed registration.

Commonpoint Queens is proud to offer continuing education courses for our community!

Systemic Interventions in Work with Individuals, Families, and Collateral Contacts
Monday, March 18th, 2024, 8:30AM – 10:30 AM, two contact hours

Jane Bardavid, LCSW, Private Practice; Former Director CAPE Mental Health Clinic, Samuel Field Y

Within diverse settings, within work with people of all ages, social workers need to work effectively with a designated client’s family and/or with significant collateral contacts. Understanding the systems that impact clients guides the social worker’s use of appropriate systemic-based interventions that produce positive outcomes. This course explores systemic interventions in families presenting with problem areas with children, such as acting out, childhood depression, and school problems; with adults facing employment and financial problems, and with older adults facing multiple challenges. Case studies and video material will be used to operationalize interventions.

This session will take place virtually and pre-registration is required.  If you’d like to register for a class, please fill out our form and submit payment below.
