ACBS is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. We offer the opportunity for non-profit associations and the general public to hold training events where they are able to offer CEs for Psychologists through ACBS. In order to do so, an organization or individual must complete the Co-Sponsor Application Form and then be approved by the Continuing Education Committee of ACBS.
The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Association for Contextual Behavioral Science maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
Please check with the appropriate state agencies in your area to see if these APA credits may work for your event.
ACBS is not an ongoing provider of CEs through the NASW or NBCC because they do not offer the same type of blanket approval system that the APA offers; you must apply to provide credits for each individual event. Therefore, please contact these organizations directly if you'd like to offer these types of credits for your event.
Although this CE co-sponsor opportunity is available to the general public and private businesses as well, all non-profit associations, ACBS affiliated chapters, and Peer-Reviewed ACT Trainers can obtain greatly discounted fees for the application process of becoming a CE co-sponsor. Please see the information packet below to find out more and to view the application form. If you have any questions, please email ACBS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
