Ethics trainings are offered more often for different populations.
Prevention Ethics is designed for persons seeking or maintaining the Certified Prevention Specialist (CPS) credential. It can be applied to LADC/MLADC re-licensure but not the initial application. This training is also approved for LICSW and LCMHCs ethics requirements.
Ethics for Recovery Support Workers is designed for persons seeking the Certified Recovery Support Worker credential. It is also applicable to LADC/MLADC initial licensure. This training is accepted for CPS re-certification – not the initial CPS application.
We also offer a variety of Ethics and Boundaries trainings. These ethics trainings are applicable to LADC/MLADC licensing as well as LICSW and LCMHC ethics requirements. This training is accepted for CPS re-certification – not the initial CPS application.
Suicide related trainings – NHADACA seeks to offer trainings on suicide on a regular basis, and when funding allows, offer suicide prevention in the Spring and suicide postvention in the Fall of each year. We also have a webinar on the topic available online. Suicide training is required for mental health counselors, Certified Prevention Specialists, Certified Recovery Support Workers and LADC/MLADC professionals.
