Provider Events

Superior offers several professional development and continuing education opportunities throughout the year. These events are designed to support providers and health care professionals by improving the quality of care, services and, ultimately, patient outcomes.
 

AUSTIN, TX: July 26-27, 2018

Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Training
Sponsored by Superior HealthPlan

Superior HealthPlan will be sponsoring a free two-day Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Training and Follow-up Consultation as an effort to help clinicians treating children in foster care enhance their skills and utilize the best evidence-based tools available.

TF-CBT is an evidence-based treatment for children and adolescents impacted by trauma that includes participation by their parents or caregivers. Research shows that TF-CBT successfully resolves a broad array of emotional and behavioral difficulties associated with single, multiple and complex trauma experiences.

  • Contracted Superior Providers (or in the credentialing process).
  • Master's degree or above in a mental health discipline.
  • Professional licensure in home state (or will be licensed within two years).

For details about the TF-CBT evidence-based treatment model and criteria for national certification, please review the information available at http://tfcbt.org,

If you do not meet the criteria above, please visit https://tfcbt.org/training for other TF-CBT Training opportunities outside of our organization

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Credit:

14.5 hours by Texas Board of Social Workers. Most Texas licensing boards recognize each other's hours when you submit a certificate for credit. (This includes LPC, LMFT and substance abuse fields.) If you have any questions, please contact your licensing board.

Please note: Providers must attend both full days of class for CEU credit.

Pre-Training Recommendation:

Prior to attending training, it is recommend that providers complete the Medical University of South Carolina's online TF-CBT training available at http://tfcbt2.musc.edu

Their website provides information about CEUs they offer for completing the online course (their CEUs are in addition to those you earn by attending this live, two-day training). This is also a good option for clinicians who cannot attend the training to learn more about TF-CBT and earn CEUs.
