About our "On Demand" Webinars:

NBFE broadcasts several live webinar events each year.  Though we strongly encourage attendance at live events, which allow for more experiential learning and interaction between attendees and presenters, we understand that busy professionals sometimes have schedule conflicts with our live events.  For this reason, in 2018 we launched our "on demand webinar" program, in which we record our live webinar events and then convert them into recorded training events that professionals can view and complete at their leisure.  

NBFE is an NBCC-Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for events that meet NBCC requirements. The ACEP solely is responsible for all aspects of the program. Provider #: 6189.  NBFE is endorsed by the American Mental Health Counselors Association as well as numerous state and local associations and groups.  For professional licensed in Florida, NBFE is an approved by CE Broker to provide continuing education for licensed mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, clinical social workers, and psychologists (CE Broker Provider #50-15823)

All "on demand" webinars are accessible online.  

Certificates that are suitable for framing and submission to licensure boards will be sent via e-mail.

For professionals licensed in Florida, attendance will be automatically reported to CE Broker.

Note: "On demand" webinar registrations are nonrefundable.

How to Conduct a Quality Substance Abuse Evaluation

CEUs:2 Contact Hours
Cost:$20 (members) or $30 (nonmembers)
Description:  One of the many characteristics of SUDs that makes them unique is that the nature of the addictive process is such that denial, minimization, and lack of insight are a natural component of the development of the disorder.  Accordingly, clients often deny, minimize, rationalize, and under-report, both intentionally and unintentionally, making clinical and forensic evaluations very challenging.  This webinar provided evaluators with tools for compensating for these challenges.
