EDUCATION FOR THERAPISTS AND WORKSHOPS FOR PROFESSIONALS

Training for Therapists

ECAS (Eugene Center For Anxiety & Stress)  workshops are always kept below an attendance of thirty or fewer to allow for small group conversations and real time questions, something that is becoming less possible in a remote training world. Our Spring 2022 Training Series is coming soon!

Our training offers a full orientation to stress management, from basics to advanced workshops developed to help mental health clinicians and working professionals further hone their skills.

Training and Workshops are always led by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer who balances decades of experience with enthusiasm for the latest research. We offer virtual learning for topics such as OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) training, Exposure therapy training, Transgender clientele training, and Cultural Competence Training.
