The cost of the training is $130 and includes a light breakfast and 4 CEUs.

Professional Consultation

Mental Health providers who participate in our ERP Essentials training have the option to sign up for two 30-minute phone consultations. These consultations can be scheduled at any time during the 6 months that follow the training. Providers can use these consultations to receive support with a single client, or multiple clients, as they see fit.


On-Site Training and Consultation

We provide on-site training, with an option for ongoing consultation, to schools and mental health organizations. Professionals in these settings report receiving great value from these trainings, as they are often in the position of working with individuals with OCD and feeling confused about how best to help them. Our trainings empower professionals with the tools to support individuals with OCD, with whom the typical behavioral interventions are often unhelpful.


Professional Supervision

We offer individual and group supervision for providers seeking licensure.
