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.
