Continuing Education Credits (CEs) and Workshops

Transparent Logomark for Stress & Trauma Evaluation And Psychological Services - STEPS
Explore the different continuing education (CEs) and workshops STEPS offers.

In keeping with our mission to provide reparative care with cultural humility, STEPS offers a monthly reading group with an explicit focus on the sociopolitical roots of psychological distress. Psychology’s understanding of the impact of historical and intergenerational trauma has significantly grown in the past decade and we hope to use writings by experts in the fields of psychology as well as cultural studies to deepen our knowledge on working effectively with the effects of patriarchal norms, intergenerational racial harm, queer phobia, and political violence. As a NYS CE provider for psychologists, we offer one CE per class hour for this reading group. This is an open group but we ask for a commitment of at least six classes. Please write to or if interested.

Workshops can be tailored to address a variety of topics upon request. Below is a sample of invited workshops that STEPS clinicians have delivered:
