The UNK Department of Counseling and School Psychology is hosting its 11th annual Professional Development Series beginning September 25. “It is designed to meet the continuing education needs of our alumni, current students, and people out in the field,” says Dr. Grace Mims, chair of the Department of Counseling and School Psychology. “The idea for the series started with our advisory council and this year we added a webinar at their recommendation. Anyone who has a license or certification has to continue to get training.” The Professional Development Series helps to fill the need for continuing education in central Nebraska. This year, the advisory council recommended a "webinar" format which is our "Art of Clinical Supervision" workshop. It will become available starting October 2.
