Previous Webinar Feedback:

I know what you’re thinking … a webinar? Really? Yes, and I solemnly swear to do my best to not make this a snooze fest! Here is recent feedback from previous webinars:
“I really enjoyed the trainer’s ability of making the presentation personable and comfortable for participation by the audience.” – November, 2022

“The trainer had a lot of information about cultural issues presented in a different way.” – November, 2022

“The instructor was very transparent as well as informative in communicating cultural issues.” – November, 2022

“This was the best course I have had during my entire 30 year career. Hard not to pay attention since I was laughing the through most of it. Great sense of humor while presenting this material. Easier to learn when the instructor is presenting in this fashion.” – October, 2022

“Glenn did an incredible job presenting the information in a way that was interesting and engaging. It will certainly be helpful in my everyday practice. I would attend any trainings done by Glenn. Zoom trainings can be daunting, and often I end up multitasking, but i paid attention during the entire full day training.” – October, 2022

“Maintaining audience attention via Zoom for 4 days is difficult to achieve, yet this facilitator mastered this difficult task. He was extremely engaging and creative, and equally knowledgeable about clinical supervision best practices.” – September, 2022

This entire workshop was beyond my expectations!! I learned so much valuable information and was engaged throughout the entire presentation. Glenn Duncan should be the only one allowed to teach this course, as he can knowledge beyond his years. I wish Glenn Duncan could be every professional’s supervisor, as he is spot on. I love the information displayed during our breaks.” – July, 2022

Frequently Asked Questions

1) Which licensures are these clock hours approved for?

This course is NBCC approved thus it is good for LPCs, LACs, LCADCs, CADCs, LMFTs, LAMFTs, LSWs and LCSWs. Social Workers you also accept NBCC approved courses as per your continuing education licensure regulations: 13:44G-6.4(c)(12) SOURCES OF CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS AND CREDIT-HOUR CALCULATIONS (page 19). However, just to be sure we have this announcement. NJ Social Workers: We have applied for approval from the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program.

2) Will this workshop count towards the 3 hours needed for NJ LCADCs/CADCs, LCSWs/LSWs, LPCs/LACs, LMFT/LAMFT in social and cultural competence training every biennial period?

YES! This course will provide that 3 clock hour training requirement, not only required in NJ but in many states. This webinar is accessable to anybody as long as your state allows NBCC approved workshops to count towards continuing education.

3) Will this workshop only be held as a live, interactive webinar?

The pandemic has shown us that live, interactive webinars provide us with the ease of being able to do continuing education remotely. We plan to go back to offering these workshops in both interactive webinar and live workshops formats. However, we will only do go back to live workshops when it is safe to do so, and when we feel enough people would support coming out to a live in-person workshop.

4) If the workshop is presented in both a live, interactive webinar and as an in-person training, will this workshop be offered in a hybrid fashion (e.g., open to either those attending in person or via webinar simultaneously)?

No! We currently do not have approval for the hybrid format, nor are we seeking approval for the hybrid format. Therefore, the entire workshop must be taken either as a live, interactive webinar or as an in-person live workshop, and will only be offered as such.
