Continuing Education

Please note:  As you may know, as of August 17, ADEC transitioned to a new management company. Due to the transition of management companies, previously recorded webinars and conference sessions’ approval expired. We have been and are continuing to work closely with ADEC’s new accreditation vendor on re-applying all 150+ enduring content for accreditation. We are working as quickly as we are able to and will post content as it is approved. As there are many moving pieces and presenters involved with the re-accreditation process, we do not have a set finish date but are targeting a month’s time.

We understand this may be an inconvenience and an area of frustration. We appreciate your understanding and are working quickly to provide re-approved content. Updates will be posted on this website as available.

Whether death, dying and grief are the focus of your practice, or you address these issues from time to time, you want to bring the best and most current knowledge to bear. Learn from the leading minds in thanatology and earn continuing education credits with a selection of programs from ADEC. Choosing distance education sessions from ADEC ensures you the most relevant and sensitive training from the best minds in the field, at a price that won’t break your budget. 

Continuing education credits are available for counselors, social workers, psychologists, alcohol and drug addiction counselors, marriage and family therapists.
