We know you have other options, including earning your CEU credits online. But here’s a convenient, high value way* to earn your RN/LVN/CNA or  MFT/LCSW CEUs  - away from your “screen”  with dynamic, live lectures and discussions. 

*Class fees include tuition and may include materials fees as noted at registration. CLL is pleased to provide your CEU credits at no additional charge.

Spaces go fast. Take a look and register today!

4 CEUs (Class Cost: $20)
Saturday, March 14th
9 a.m.-1 p.m.
In this class, students will identify how barriers to financial success are often formed in childhood when money is used to express desires, power, love, envy, anger or revenge in the family. Unravel the psychological threads that entangle you in 'money madness,' and learn to eliminate self-destructive patterns, magical thinking and irrational attitudes that hold you back.

2 CEUs (Class Cost: $14)
Saturday, March 14th
10 a.m.-12 Noon
Trauma, tragedy and errors of judgment often become dark holes of guilt, anger, depression and despair. Students are welcome to come and learn the guidelines to raise lower impulses into the higher sources of life, light and love.

6 CEUs (Class Cost: $42)
Saturday, March 21st
9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Students will discover how to communicate constructively and effectively in any situation using the principle of Attitude Reconstruction, which blends the best of western and eastern approaches, and shows you how to harness the innate tools you were born with to build a life of joy, love, and peace.

3 CEUs (Class Cost: $2)
Saturday, March 21st
9 a.m.-12 Noon
The 'covert' expression of depression observed in men is far different than the overt expression of depression seen in women. Men's depression must be acknowledged and treated in a way that successfully accommodates this different expression. Students are encouraged to join an exploratory and informational discussion that will include the breakthrough work of Terry Real, Pia Melody, and Brene Brown.
