The Ferentz Institute offers two distinct yet complementary sets of learning opportunities for mental health professionals— comprehensive Certificate Programs and an eclectic selection of Continuing Education Workshops.

All of our trainings are approved by the Board of Social Work Examiners, the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists, and the Board of Examiners for Psychologists in Maryland. Reciprocal approval is also granted to social workers in Washington D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia.

To accommodate a variety of learning styles, participants learn on both didactic and experiential levels—including role-playing, art and writing exercises, interactive discussions, and small group collaborative work.

The Ferentz Institute workshops offer continuing education on topics such as: trauma, ethics, self-destructive behaviors, expressive modalities, professional burnout and self-care, and the challenges of adolescence. Faculty bring their years of teaching and specialized clinical expertise to the classroom, where participants learn and grow together in a nurturing environment.

Payment for the Certificate Programs or any of our workshops can be made by credit card, check, or money order.

Unless otherwise indicated, all classes begin promptly at 8:45am and end by 4:15pm. Registration and breakfast begins at 8:30am on each training day.

The Ferentz Institute, Inc. is an approved sponsor of the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners for continuing education credits for licensed social workers in Maryland. CEU approval for all trainings is also granted to Psychologists, LCPC’s and MFT’s and approved by the Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists and the Board of Examiners for Psychologists in Maryland. Reciprocity has also been granted for clinicians in Washington, DC, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Texas. If your state is not among this list, we encourage you to check with your state licensing board to see if they will grant reciprocity.
The Institute maintains full responsibility for all programming. In order to provide Category 1 CEUs for all of our trainings, the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners requires online workshops to be live, interactive, and experienced in real time. Therefore, none of our trainings are recorded for later viewing.
