Come Join us for Spring Training 2015

On March 1st Our Spring Training Sessions begin. They provide the opportunity to be trained by and receive consultation from some of the leading experts in the field; Drs Kevin Hart, Stephen Douglas and Patricia Zapf.

About the Training

Spring Training Sessions are guided online training programs that run for 10 weeks and are 30 hours long (20 hours online training + 10 hours of consultation). New content is released each week and participants are guided through the course with email notifications explaining what is to be accomplished each week. Participants should expect to devote approximately 3 hours each week to the training program, including a one-hour consultation session with the instructor for small group discussions of cases and clinical implementation issues.

Upon completion of the Spring Training Session, participants will have accrued 30 hours of training on the topic and an in-depth understanding of the relevant evaluation issues. Please click on the title of each program to learn more about the program.
