Raising the Standard in Continuing Education

We want to make continuing education better for helping professionals.

We believe mental and behavioral health practitioners and healthcare teams are critical to solving some of the biggest challenges humans face in the modern world. By providing evidence-based training of the highest quality, we aim to measurably improve their ability to deliver the best possible care and make a lasting positive impact for the people they serve.

As part of this effort, we’re proud to partner with like-minded organizations to provide quality continuing education opportunities. We invite you to explore our educational partners below.

Offering CE can be a daunting task. Our tools
and expertise are at your disposal.

If you share our mission and need support in offering continuing education credits for your workshops, webinars, conferences, or other learning activities, we’re here to help.

Through our Educational Partner Program, Praxis can work with you to offer CE credits for medical doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and interprofessional CE. Many states will also accept these approvals for counselors as well as marriage and family therapists.

We understand every company has different needs. Together, we can build a partnership that offers the exact support you require, such as guidance in approval and review processes or collaborative development of CE-eligible activities. We have the tools and systems in place to make the often arduous task of offering CE a smooth process. Working side-by-side with you each step of the way, we’ll help ensure your activity meets all CE requirements.

Since 1984, Drs. Bader and Pearson have worked to help couples resolve issues and create strong, loving relationships. Together, they developed the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, which is the focus of their training programs. Their award-winning book on couples therapy, which introduces the Developmental Model, is in its sixteenth printing and is used in graduate schools across the country.

Since their beginning in 1993, they’ve offered over a thousand trainings featuring leading experts, stimulating presentation styles, and highly relevant topics that help keep professionals on the “leading edge” of their fields.

Their goal is to give counselors, therapists, social workers, health care professionals, educators, managers, and others new skills and a fresh perspective they can use right away in their work.
