UNIQUE COURSES YOU WON'T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE!
Tired of seeing the same courses on every site you visit? Well, then, try this site. On this site you can get AOD and Mental Health CEUs for counselors and social workers with courses that are PRACTICAL and RELEVANT - and several that are entirely UNIQUE. Examples of unique courses that we offer, developed and copyrighted by CEU By Net:
Our Continuing Education courses address contemporary issues and are applicable to a broad range of treatment providers.
The course is appropriate for Mental Health and AOD Counselors and Therapists, Social Workers, EAP Providers, mental health nurses, community workers, some Psychologists, some School Counselors including California LEPs, and all individuals who serve adolescents and young adults - whether as clients or students or community members.
Important: The authors of this well researched and documented continuing education publication (5J) are clear that "because any young person may be LGBT, we must assume that clients or students could be any sexual orientation or gender identity, and respond accordingly".
Continuing Education Course 5J assesses the major 'risk factors' which can contribute to suicide of LGBT (a.k.a. GLBT) adolescents and young adults - including the internet, family and friend's history of suicide, harassment at school, rejection by family members, "coming out" to family members at an early age, etc. - and then provides specific recommendations through model programs, for ACTION to reduce the risk of suicide. The strategies are designed to be implemented with LGBT youth in schools, communities, screening programs, crisis lines, practices and gatekeeping clinics.

How best to approach these AGING issues, therapeutically, in a variety of treatment settings? That’s the focus of this course.

SURVIVE AND THRIVE IN MANAGED CARE
Is Behavioral Health MANAGED CARE just about money and business? NO. Does it have a MAJOR impact upon how Mental Health and Chemical Dependency programs and licensed providers 'assess the need' for treatment and then 'deliver' the treatment? YES - it certainly does, as those of you who are already dealing with it know only too well. We've got some GREAT Managed Care survive-and-thrive stuff for you!
Our Managed Care courses include topics like how to avoid those duh!-type errors which can COST you big bucks. How to collect when the HMO has erroneously denied your claim. Which add-on contract opportunities are SAFE, and which have 'Don't even THINK about it!' written all over them. And other real-life sticky HMO issues!
Want to know the inside nitty gritty about MANAGED CARE - including the how-to and the why-this? And it helps to know how MCOs think.
. . . OR IF YOU'RE ALREADY knee-deep into Managed Care, you can sit back and shout 'YES!' (or maybe 'NO!') as you scroll through our colorful slideshows about this most controversial of subjects, Behavioral Health Managed Care.
It's no-holds-barred stuff, telling it like it really is, in a way that will likely surprise you. Example: Our CE MiniCourse 2B, 'They're Coming To Audit WHEN?' Or check out some of our Managed Care topics here.
And what to do about those unpaid or denied insurance claims? Was this due to failure to document effectively? Failure to demonstrate Medical Necessity? Their error? Or one of those 'duh' errors on our part? Find out all the reasons why claims are denied - here on this site.

- a new 'Quiz Only' course, 'Psychotherapeutic Medications - What Every Counselor Should Know' Do you want to pass your next record audit when the insurance or state auditor shows up at your door or calls for a client's record? In our short Course 2B, you'll get clear cut, 1-2-3 how-to-do-it.
IF you are an LPC, Social Worker, LMFT, MFT, or other mental health or AOD professional, are you concerned about how the new Health Care Reform will affect how you treat your patients and clients? Not sure how to react to Managed Care from a clinical perspective? Wanting to know in advance where the 'potholes' are located? Then grab a seat and get a closeup view of what to expect and how to cope with it. We have twelve courses in our Managed Care Catalog which deal with this below.
- What, exactly, is a 'Capitation Contract'?
- How will the MCOs determine 'Medical Necessity' of treatment for your client, and how do you get approval for what he or she really needs?
- How does Care Management really work, from a clinical and medical perspective? Like, what about the ETHICS of how they work, and how does that impact us, the providers?
- And what do we need to place in clients' records to support this? How to do 'fool proof' clinical documentation in those treatment records? Learn which types of Provider Agreements or 'contract add-ons' are 'acceptable risk' and which ones have 'Don't even think about it!' written all over them! What are some good treatment program options to suggest to your insurance company?
- How to collect on those unpaid claims?
