Domestic Violence

2 CEU's



The State requires that every licensee take a Board-approved 2 hour Domestic Violence Course by their third biennium, and every registered intern within 6 months of licensure. Many students wisely choose to take this dynamic and hard-hitting course now, with nationally acclaimed presenters and pioneers in the field, Matt and Susan McMillan.  And many licensees return again and again to learn the latest updates.  If you will be seeing couples, up to 50% of your clients may be in a domestic violence relationship. If you do not handle these cases properly and legally, the results could be deadly.
