Working with Cancer, Illness & End-of-Life:

A Continuing Education Program

CEU Class at WCRCThe landscape of cancer and illness often leaves clients and their families feeling overwhelmed, uncertain and afraid. To support them, psychotherapists benefit from becoming more familiar with the emotional and logistical terrain as well as having more confidence in our own ability to negotiate that terrain. If we’re already familiar with the issues facing our clients, we benefit from support, community and continued educational opportunities.

The WCRC’s Continuing Education Program explores a diverse range of issues that affect the well being of clients and their families living with life changing illnesses. Our goal is to enhance and increase our therapeutic competence, confidence and community.

Completion of ten approved workshops (online or in person) qualifies participant for the WCRC Cancer and Illness Trained Clinician Certificate. Click here for curriculum certificate requirements. Demonstrated competency through experience will be considered to fulfill the required courses and specific courses can be substituted for required courses (for example an oncology nurse will not be required to take Cancer 101 but will need to take another course in its place, totaling 10 courses). Please email experience substitution requests to  .

These sessions are available to health care professionals and psychotherapists of all orientations, genders and all degrees. These courses meet the qualifications for 4 hours of continuing education credit for MFTs, LPCCs, LEPs and/or LCSWs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences.
