May 24th workshop: Preparing for the NCE, Licensure, & Supervision

My supervisor, Dr. Millie Cordaro, and I are hosting a workshop next Friday, May 24th. This workshop was inspired by our experience within the Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) profession. Our aim is to provide other future counselors with the information they need to know to navigate the process of successfully attaining licensure, while keeping their own mental health intact.

This 3-hour workshop will prepare you for the NCE, licensure as an LPC, and receiving supervision as an LPC Intern by presenting you with must-know information, providing experiential and exploratory activities, giving you helpful handouts to take home, and hearing others’ personal experience about their journey to licensure. Light refreshments will also be provided.
