Planning Your Training

If you're interested in planning a customized training the first step would be contacting our Administrative Director, John Hughes. We will then help you identify you're specific training needs and determine what would be best for you and your staff (number of hours, fees, CEU's, ect). Depending on the topic and training need you will then be matched up with a clinician from The Center to develop a curriculum which best meets your needs. Our staff are well versed in a variety of populations (Residential, In-Patient, Outpatient, Educational, Parochial, etc) and will customize and tailor each training to the specific population and clinical need. 

Whether you are looking for a 1 hour training or a multi-day seminar we hope you will consider the dynamic trainers from The Center. To learn more or plan a training email John Hughes at or call 847-676-4447 x 336
