I am THRILLED to announce that my self-study course, Introduction to Addiction and Recovery, is APPROCVED for six (6) self-study continuing education units (CEUs)! This approval marks a milestone for me; it has always been a career goal of mine to offer an online course based upon a book I wrote. Well, thanks to the NM Counseling and Therapy Practice Board, I’ve achieved my goal.
The “course” is a mix between my book, 49 Tips and Insights for Understanding Addiction, and an online test that I developed using the Moodle cloud platform. I’ve been playing with Moodle for many years and although it took a lot of work to get the test together, I have NO DOUBT that the course will allow participants to gain a strong foundational understanding of the way both addiction and recovery develop.
The cost for the course is $40.00. THis is a HUGE value because not only will participants receive my book, 49 Tips and Insights for Understanding Addiction, but they will also receive six (6) CEUs and real and applicable knowledge. The Recovery Research Institue has stated that there is a huge shortage of therapists with any training within the substance abuse field. This course should address that shortage in a very real way.
I’ll be adding the “plumbing” to register to jblea1016.com within the next few hours. I just couldn’t wait to share the news that I have fulfilled a career goal that is both meaningful to me and very valuable to those who enroll in the course…..
