ASSESSMENT for MAJOR DEPRESSION
3 Hours - Online Text
There are distinct differences between 'feeling blue' and clinical major depression - both in diagnosis and treatment protocol. Misdiagnosis can result in ineffective treatment - and perhaps even suicide - and no one wants that liability.

3 Hours - DVD Video & Text
Rage is anger with the risk for loss of control.
The courses in this CE-CEU-CNE certification program are appropriate for all mental health professional counseling counselors (LPC, LCPC, LPCC, MHC, RMHC, NCC), marriage and family therapy therapists (MFT, LMFT, RMFT), social work social workers (SW, LCSW, LMSW, SWA, LICSW), psychologists, psychology associates (LPA), chemical dependency substance abuse counselors (LCDC, CADC, CAD, DAC, CAAD, CSAC), and nursing registered nurses (RN, LPN, LVN), and related behavioral health professionals.
