Critical Practice Skills For Counselors


Critical Practice Skills For Counselors Workshop Synopsis:

We all need to keep our practice skills sharp (the defensive kind!) and the critical practice skills for counselors in this workshop is shaping up to be one fact-filled day full of information to grow your practice and keep you in compliance with the state. The morning segment includes sessions on The Complaint Process, the New Penalty and Criminal Matrixs just put out by the state of TX, and an overview of the New Board Rules.

Lunch is included as is the bottomless coffee mug!

More Practice Skills In The Afternoon!

In the afternoon portion of the workshop we'll introduce you to what you need to know about TeleHealth Mental Counseling to stay in the State's good graces then head on over to "the cloud" and talk about EHR Systems; what they are and what to look for when selecting one. We wrap up the day with a shot in the arm for your website with Phillip's Top 10 list of things to do to your site in order to see more patients this year than you did in 2019.

You'll walk away with a hefty 3-ring binder full of guidelines, checklists, links and other helpful documents that Kathleen has assembled over the years and sharpened in her own practice.

Morning Session

DSHS is out, BHEC is in! That's right, we have a new home and not only are the rules changing but responsibility for who administers them is also being re-assigned.

Why do you care?

Because when you need something from the Board, the who and what will be different than it has historically been. If you have a complaint filed against you both the procedure and who's dealing with it, are different now. Even simple administrative tasks like updating your address or renewing your license have undergone changes, some very significant.

We'll take a deep look at the new BHEC Rules, determine whether your Board is responsible for administering it or BHEC is, and how those rules that govern every aspect of your practice have changed.

Dig this well before you need the water!

"Enjoyed the private and very personal workshop. Tons of information provided."

--Cheryl Moses, LPC

"This training is practical and necessary to equip counselors

with the knowledge to responsibly manage requests and manage

the business of running a counseling practice."

--Ashley Jesse, LPC-S

"In previous workshops I've attended the presentors always seem to be, "pressured for time".

Kathleen & Phillip were available to answer questions and provide resources. I will be taking

their Supervisor Refresher Course and Chapter 611 Release of Records & Professional

Practice Forms course as soon as I can!"

Cristal Clark, LPC-S  (Ft. Worth)

"I really enjoyed the workshop. It shed light on a lot of things I did not know as a new therapist."

--Kristal Manning, LPC

"Kathleen and Phillip's expertise opened my eyes to improve and refresh my business and my web presence. Their open and personal approach made learning about rules, code, and laws actually entertaining. I'll be back!"

--Shannon Thornton, LPC  (Plano, TX)

Oh, yeah! There's more!!!

Did we mention that lunch is included? Well,....

Afternoon Session
1PM - 4PM

"Excellent review of most current topics in BHEC as it pertains

to our licensing boards. Really enjoyed the formal

and informal conversations and networking."

--Evelyn Dillman, LPC  (Tyler, TX)

"As someone very fresh to the counseling profession, this was

an eye-opening workshop that boosted my confidence

interacting with clients when it comes to legal paperwork considerations."

--Andee Fonseca, LPC  (San Antonio, TX)

"Kathleen Is the best in the business in terms of preparing therapists

for private practice. Her knowledge is superior, her experience

invaluable, and her content a a must if you are a counselor."

--Anne "Kip" Watson, LPC-S  (Frisco, TX)

"Kathleen is friendly and funny, but most importantly she is

incredibly knowledgeable. She makes learning difficult

information fun, as well as providing necessary ethics information

that is not nearly as accessible as we need!"

--Jodi Greanead,  LPC

"I don't feel like I just, "took a course!"I got all the hours I needed and checked the box

to renew my license. I believe I have a renewed sense of purpose and the tools to accomplish

my, "why", to serve. And,...they have set up the training in a way to develop and foster

relationships. I am also leaving with a resource binder, a colleague, and a new "practicementor'!

Just take a course and you'll see the difference and that the human connection factor

is a HUGE part of their, "WHY"."

--Cristal Clark, LPC-S  (Ft. Worth)
