Join Us in Orlando at the Marriott Lake Mary Hotel on Feb. 7th and 8th for our 2014 Conference

"Accreditation and Certification: Heightening Awareness and Removing Obstacles, Where is our Profession Headed?"

As the mental health industry continues to evolve in Florida, many mental health counselors are wondering where our profession is headed.  Don’t sit back and wonder – become an active part of the process!

  • Dr. Juhan Mixon and Corinne Mixon will help you understand the importance of legislative and grassroots lobbying, and how current legislation may be impacting the future of Mental Health Counseling in Florida.
  •  Dr. James Finley and Dr. Judith Berenthal-Smith will discuss where our profession is heading and how you can make your voice heard.
  •  Dr. Carol Bobby will increase your understanding of the CACREP process and help dispel CACREP myths.
