Continuing Education Policies & Information

Registration

Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NCP is holding all events, seminars and courses online until further notice.  

REQUIREMENTS FOR ONLINE EVENTS AND SEMINARS

Pre-registration is required for all events and seminars. Registration must be completed under the individual’s own name and account profile to receive CE/CME credit. 

REGISTRATION DEADLINES

  • Weeknight Online Events: Registration closes at 12pm the day of the event for events taking place on weeknight evenings. 
  • Weekend Online Events: Registration closes at 4pm on Friday for events taking place on a Saturday or Sunday. There is no same-day registration for weekend events.

These deadlines are in place so that we have adequate time to update our registration lists and email the necessary event details to registrants in time for the event. 

STUDENT DISCOUNT

For many of our programs, we offer a significant student discount. Student is defined as an undergraduate or graduate student, an intern, resident, clinical associate or psychotherapy student.  Please check individual listings for details.

EARLY REGISTRATION DISCOUNT

Early registration is offered at a discount for some special events. The deadline to register at the discounted fee is 11:59pm the night of the early-registration end date. 

 

Cancellation and Refund Policy

NCP reserves the right to cancel any event or seminar, and in that event, a full refund is given. With notice of at least three business days, anyone may cancel their registration and receive a full refund. 

 

Continuing Education Credit

NUMBER OF CREDITS

The maximum number of CME/CE credits for each learning activity is listed on the individual course page. 

PROOF OF ATTENDANCE

After logging into the Zoom meeting/conference, a “sign-in” and “sign-out” in Chat is required to receive CE/CME credit. This functions as your signature would for an in-person event.

COURSE EVALUATION

Attendees must complete a course evaluation in order to receive a certificate for continuing education credit. 

 

Continuing Education Statement of Objectives

Continuing Education Programs of the New Center for Psychoanalysis are intended to bridge practice gaps in the professional knowledge of attendees by exploring new and recent developments in research, theory, technique and clinical knowledge, and by offering opportunities for review of essential psychoanalytic knowledge. 

These continuing education activities are presented in a variety of formats such as scientific papers, clinical workshops, lectures and discussion groups and are designed to increase the professional competence of mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, marriage & family therapists, licensed educational psychologists, licensed professional clinical counselors, registered nurses, and those in training in these disciplines, as well as academics in mental health and non-mental health fields.

 

IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE INFORMATION FOR ALL LEARNERS:

None of the planners and presenters of these continuing education programs have any relevant financial relationships to disclose.

Complaint/Grievance Policy 

While New Center for Psychoanalysis goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to alleviate problems, there will be occasional issues which come to the attention of the NCP staff which require intervention and/or action on the part of the staff or a representative of the New Center for Psychoanalysis. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such complaints/grievances.

When a participant, either orally or in written format, makes a complaint or expects action on a grievance, the following procedures will be followed:

  • If the complaint/grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the complaint will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The Extension or Program Committee Chair will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the aggrieved individual.
  • If the complaint/grievance is made concerning a course offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the course was offered and it is in the first 20 minutes of the program and there is no remedy for the situation, then the staff person on duty will:
    1. Ask the complainant to complete a form asking for a partial or full refund of the course fee  
    2. Copy the complaint form to the Executive Director or delegate, the chair of the committee who planned the program, and the program file.
    3. The Executive Director or delegate will review the complaint/grievance and make a decision whether or not to issue a refund.
    4. Follow-up with the complainant that a refund credit was received. 

If a complaint or grievance is not satisfied, then the program chair or course coordinator will be notified and if any further action is requested, he/she will mediate. Situations may be handled on a case-by-case basis. The Committee Chair will be the final arbitrator.

All actions require written documentation of the complaint or grievance. If the complaint is only given verbally, the staff person on duty will document the complaint and the action taken and any request for further follow-up action.

To submit a complaint or if you have additional questions, please contact:
