)-- OHEL is proud to announce that the Mel and Phyllis Zachter OHEL Institute for Training is one of the first institutions to be recognized by the New York State Education Department's State Board for Mental Health Practitioners as an Approved Provider of Continuing Education for both Licensed Mental Health Counselors and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists.
These practitioners can now join social workers in fulfilling their New York State requirements by attending the Institute’s state-of-the-science trainings, confident that they will gain the knowledge and skills needed to meet the diverse challenges facing our communities.
When New York State instituted continuing education requirements for Licensed Social Workers in 2015, OHEL’s Institute for Training was likewise one of the first educational institutions to be recognized by the State as an Approved Provider of such training.
Since then, thousands of social workers have flocked to the Institute to learn from renowned experts, thereby enhancing their professional development and skills while meeting the State requirements.
David Mandel, CEO of OHEL comments that “OHEL’s Institute for Training continues to be a leader in advanced professional education, and this accreditation is further recognition of the clinical excellence and value the workshops, seminars and conferences provide to clinicians, educators, mental health professionals and the wider community.”
