Fordham University’s Graduate School of Education (GSE) is now an approved New York State Continuing Education (CE) provider for Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC’s). New CE workshops, which aim to offer relevant and timely lectures regarding a variety of mental health topics, are being offered through the GSE’s Hagin School Consultation Center, a training facility for psychology graduate students. The center also provides psycho-educational and neuropsychological evaluations, consultation services, and professional development opportunities for the local community.
This past month, the center sponsored its first CE workshop, “Microaggressions and Intersectional Identities in Therapy Groups: Ruptures and Repairs.” Eric Chen, Ph.D., Fordham GSE professor of counseling psychology, and Aziza Platt, Ph.D., licensed psychologist specializing in culturally responsive therapy and assessment, presented on strategies for incorporating microaggression awareness and intervention into clinical settings.
The center has a variety of CE workshops planned for coming semesters, exploring topics such as supporting executive function in children; avoiding burnout and vicarious trauma; conducting antiracist psychological assessment; and assisting school transitions for children who have experienced traumatic events. Presenters for these workshops include Fordham GSE faculty members Fran Blumberg, Ph.D., counseling psychology professor; Alea Holman, Ph.D., school psychology assistant professor; Angie Sjoquist, Ph.D., Hagin School Consultation Center director and school psychology clinical assistant professor; Tamique Ridgard, Ph.D., school psychology assistant professor; and Angela P. Vargas, Ph.D., counseling psychology faculty.
All interested participants are welcome to attend these workshops; Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHC’s) may receive CE credit for their participation. The center also currently offers three New York state mandated workshops for education certifications: the Dignity for All Students Act (DASA), Child Abuse Identification and Reporting (CAIR), and Schools Against Violence Education (SAVE) workshops.
