Revolutionizing Continuing Education for Mental Health Professionals

Continuing education for mental health professionals is one of those things that every therapist has to deal with. But what if you had a continuing education program with course material that actually provided topical, compelling information, and enriched your experience as a service provider and small business owner? 

How SimplePractice Learning is Disrupting CE

SimplePractice Learning is a modern contrarian to a tired, old industry norm. With SimplePractice Learning, you can earn the CE credits you need on a platform that’s anything but the usual. 

People don’t learn when they stay within their comfort zone. That’s why SimplePractice Learning courses showcase a diverse range of voices and new perspectives. Explore thought-provoking courses that stray from your typical, lackluster CE course. When you’re more engaged with the course content, the better you’ll absorb and retain the information. That’s why each course is designed to elicit powerful reactions from the audience. 

Dr. Ben Caldwell, Education Director at SimplePractice Learning, explains, “This program was created from a bold, transformational vision of what continuing education should, and can, be. As someone who has spent my career educating mental health professionals and fighting to make our training process better, I’m proud to be part of it.” Caldwell goes on to say, “We wanted to make it easier for professionals to connect with great education that has a lasting impact.”

A Smarter Approach to CE Credits for Mental Health Professionals

Continuing education is intended to regularly hone a practitioner’s skill set. But finding valuable content makes that difficult. Even though it may be the norm to scour the internet for cheap courses that’ll satisfy any requirements you may need to fulfill, are you really getting the education portion of “continuing education?” 

If you’re going to spend any time and money at all, why not choose a curated collection of CE courses that’ll keep you at the forefront of your industry, and equip you with actionable takeaways you can implement into your real-life sessions?

SimplePractice CEO and Co-Founder Howard Spector started this platform to revolutionize the way clinicians think about and engage with CE courses. “With your typical CE programs, clinicians need to sort through thousands of courses to find the few that can really have an impact,” says Howard. “The mission of SimplePractice Learning is to remove that obstacle with thoroughly-reviewed and hand-selected content—making it easy to find the digestible, valuable material at reasonable prices.”

More Than Just Another CE Course

Every entrepreneur will be faced with a constantly evolving industry that requires adaptation and a quick learning agility to stay relevant. And the mental health profession is no exception. A robust skill set will enable you to provide exceptional services, attract new clients, and run a successful business.

SimplePractice Learning also offers courses that are deeply engaging with high production value and a relentless focus on applicability. Whether you want to master the art of storytelling in therapy or need to re-familiarize yourself with HIPAA compliance, you can learn from thought leaders in your community who’re pioneering the educational revolution. The lessons you take can be put to use right away.

Additional Courses for Small Business Owners

In the spirit of true learning and education, SimplePractice Learning is expanding its library to include more than just continuing education courses. With additional business and career development (non-CE) courses, you can reach past your clinical needs and further your skill set as a small business owner in the private practice space. Courses like Writing Irresistible Website Copy are just scratching the surface of what’s to come. Stay tuned for more of these courses to be added to the SimplePractice Learning library.
