About the Summit

This summit is designed for psychologists, counselors, clinicians, therapists, clinical social workers, psychiatrists, mental health nurse practitioners, health care administrators, researchers and policymakers.

The summit:

+ Provides an opportunity to hear from experts across the country about current, innovative children’s mental health research 
+ Explores how research informs practice and practice informs research  
+ Connects professionals from across disciplines to share and learn together


This conference is designed to meet CEH (Continuing Education Hours) credits for many disciplines: psychology, social work, education, education administration, nursing, marriage and family therapy, and behavioral health and therapy. CEH certificates will be available to document participation.

Up to 8 CEHs are expected to be approved by the following boards:

MN Board of Behavioral Health & Therapy
MN Board of Marriage & Family Therapy
MN Board of Psychology
MN Board of Social Work

The following boards do not require pre-approved CEHs. CEHs should be approved upon independent submission to your board:
+ MN Board of Education
+ MN Nursing Board
+ ND Board of Social Work

Professionals in other related disciplines, as well as those working outside of Minnesota, can submit CEH certificates to their corresponding boards for independent approval.

Actual CEH amounts will be dependent upon your specific licensure board and attendance.
