Posted on Feb, 01 2011

A program for psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, nurses, teachers, school administrators, clergy, parents and the general public

Distance and Continuing Education at North Dakota State University, Fargo, will hold “Getting Out of Junior High: A Lifetime’s Work,” Tuesday, March 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the SGC Building located at 1919 N. University Dr. Fargo. The program is open to psychologists, social workers, counselors, therapists, nurses, teachers, school administrators, clergy, parents, and the general public.

Terence W. Barrett Ph.D. will discuss how grown-up humans, expected to be adults, continue to act as if they are in junior high. Barrett is a licensed psychologist, NDSU lecturer and author of Life After Suicide: The Survivor’s Experience. He conducts seminars on a variety of current therapy issues and has provided over 100 professional presentations nationally.

Learning objectives include:

• Recognize that adult behavior and thinking is a gradual accomplishment achieved across a lifetime and not dictated by reaching particular ages,

• Better understand behaviors which indicate delayed personal development, and

• Learn to identify tactics which reflect levels of development.

Cost is $99 and includes lunch and Continuing Education Units (CEUs). CEUs have been approved for NBCC counselors, ND social workers, and general CEUs. This workshop is 5.5 contact hours (individuals should check with their own governing boards in advance regarding their particular CEU requirements/applicability). Registration deadline is February 21. For more information or to register visit http://www.ndsu.edu/dce or call 1.800.726.1724.
