TDC is an approved CE provider through the ASWB's ACE (Approved Continuing Education) program. The California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) also accepts continuing education credits given through ACE-approved courses (http://www.bbs.ca.gov/licensees/ce_approval.html).
This combo package includes 12 hours of law and ethics and fulfills the California BBS coursework required for those who do not pass the Law and Ethics exam. We have confirmed with an Assistant Executive Officer at the BBS that any combination of 12 Law & Ethics units offered through an approved provider (see above) meets the requirement and can provide email confirmation of this if needed.
Included in this package are two courses: Law & Ethics: Minimizing Legal-Ethical Risk in Psychotherapy (9 hours) and Law & Ethics: Managing Your Practice Under California Law (3 hours).
You must include both certificates of completion when submitting your application to the BBS.
