Resources to use in a time of tragedy

Our hearts go out to all those who are affected by recent tragedies that have occurred in our nation and worldwide. Because scenes of war and violence around the world as featured on the news can have negative impacts on children, NASP has included several resources on its homepage as go-tos to help children cope during this time.

 


Law & Ethics still on; Two Other Workshops Canceled

The 15-hour Alcohol and Other Substance Abuse Training and the seven-hour Child Abuse Assessment workshops scheduled to be presented on August 3-4 at Loyola Marymount University have been canceled. However, the Law & Ethics workshop scheduled for Aug. 4 will be held.

“We simply did not have enough people sign up for these workshops. We offer them as one-stop events where new LEPs can get the CEUs they need before they can renew their licenses for the first time,” said Heidi Holmblad, CASP executive director.

Law and Ethics is still available. All LEPs must take six hours on the topic every two year before renewing their licenses. NCSPs need three hours of the topic every three years to renew their certification. For more information or to sign up for the Law and Ethics workshop, visit http://casponline.org/events/casp-lep-workshops.
