The department of pastoral counseling at Loyola University Maryland is an approved provider of CE by several professional organizations, including the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Counseling Association (ACA), and the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). Each CE event seeks to offer a collegial environment inviting individuals to meet seminar/workshop objectives in a manner that will facilitate practical application to professional settings. All CE provider credentials are reviewed and approved by the director of CE in the department of pastoral counseling and by Loyola University Maryland’s office for planning and accreditation. As such, the selected CE programing falls in line with the department of pastoral counseling therapeutic approach which addresses both the psychological and spiritual dimensions of those in need of mental health care.
