Industry leader approved by NYSED offers more than two dozen courses to help NY therapists fill continuing education requirements, engage with current research
LOS ANGELES—February 5, 2021—SimplePractice Learning, the most sophisticated continuing education platform on the market today for behavioral health professionals, has received approval by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to provide continuing education (CE) courses for psychologists.
As of January 1, 2021, New York licensed psychologists must complete 36 hours of approved continuing education courses for each triennial registration period. All CE courses must be taken from psychology providers approved by the NYSED on the basis of an application, fee and the requirements in Education Law and Commissioner’s Regulations. SimplePractice Learning is only the 30th CE provider approved by NYSED for psychologists, and one of even fewer CE providers approved in New York for all four of the major mental health professions: psychologists, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, and social workers.
“Continuing education is an essential part of every clinician’s ability to keep up with the most current research and provide the best standard of care possible. At SimplePractice Learning, our mission is to empower mental health professionals to expand, apply, and share knowledge through high-quality content relevant to the timely needs of therapists and their patients,” said Ben Caldwell, education director of SimplePractice Learning. “We’re proud to help mental health providers in the great state of New York not only fulfill their requirements, but enjoy and engage with continuing education.”
Several SimplePractice Learning courses are presented by current or former New York psychologists, including the top-selling “‘Pure O’ OCD Subtypes: How to Identify and Treat Them,” presented by Dr. Nikki Rubin, and SimplePractice Learning’s most recent offering, “Talking with Clients about Video Games,” presented by Dr. Alexander Kriss.
