Continuing Education

continuing education

The Gulf Coast Elder Abuse Conference is proud to offer Continuing Education credit to several disciplines, most of which are authorized through a national organization.  Although national organizations have a broader reach, not all states accept the national authorizations.  It is incumbent on the attendee to verify that his/her state accepts the authorization offered through the conference.

Authorizations are in process or have been approved for the following:

NASW (Social Workers) – National/Louisiana:

This program is Approved by the National Association of Social Workers (Approval # 886670780-1083) for 12 continuing education contact hours.

Because of the cancellation by Liz Loewy, the classes she was to present could not be replaced by nationally approved continuing education.  The NASW Louisiana Chapter has approved two of the replacement sessions for 2 continuing education contact hours.  The Louisiana Chapter encourages non-Louisiana attendees who attend these classes to contact their local chapters to request reciprocity. 

AOTA (Occupational Therapists) – National:

The Gulf Coast Elder Abuse Conference regrets that we have found it necessary to withdraw our application for AOTA continuing education authorization.

NBCC(Certified Counselors) – National:

The Gulf Coast Elder Abuse Conference has been approved by NBCC for NBCC credit.  Sessions approved for NBCC credit are clearly identified.*  St. Tammany SALT Council is solely responsible for all aspects of the program.  NBCC Approval Number SP-3042.
