This year’s UCF Counseling Conference will be hosted virtually in Zoom (login information will be sent to all registrants) and will feature clinicians and researchers in a wide variety of clinical topics: attendees from all backgrounds will learn valuable information that they can apply to their work settings with clients. During each of the 2 Conference days, attendees will be able to select the presentation topic that most interests them and thus participate in the learning environment. In order to record attendees’ participation, each person will need to sign in and sign out for the presentation they attended. A Certificate of Continuing Education or a Certificate of Attendance will be sent to each attendee, with the potential of earning 12 hours of CEs from the National Board for Certified Counselors. We look forward to your joining us at this year’s UCF Counseling Conference.
UCF’s Counselor Education program is an approved provider of continuing education through NBCC and APT.
