Continuing Education

In an effort to make registration affordable to as many people as possible, Collectively Rooted opted to offer NBCC CEs with the ticket price, and other CEs at an additional fee.

CEs for NBCC are included as part of your conference ticket. If you paid for registration through our website, you are eligible to receive both live and home study NBCC CEs.

To receive LIVE NBCC CEs you must:

  1. Purchase a conference ticket from Collectively Rooted website

  2. Sign in at the beginning of each presentation

  3. Sign out at the end of each presentation

  4. Complete the course evaluation for each presentation in your learning management account

  5. Your certificate will be available to download from your learning management account once all above steps are completed

If you are unable to attend the live event and require the home study program instead, please reach out to [email protected].

All Other CEs

All non-NBCC CE’s are handled by our CE partner, R Cassidy. Any accompanying evaluations or quiz questions will be administered through their website. All questions regarding the administration of these CEs can be directed to [email protected]

R Cassidy offers CEs for the following professions:



Social Workers

Counselors/Marriage and Family Therapists

Creative Arts Therapists

Chemical Dependency Counselors



Please check the full listing on each course to be sure CEs are covered for your profession and state. It is best to check with your state licensing board to ensure that CEs will be accepted for your needs.

To receive CE credit for these professions, you must purchase CEs as an add on. Each pre-conference session is offered as a separate course, while the conference itself is bundled by day – this choice was also a choice designed to keep end user costs down by allowing us to bundle lectures and receive a reduced fee. The breakdown for CEs by day follows.

The links below are for LIVE CEs ONLY. For any given conference day, you must attend the FULL DAY to receive credit

If you are unable to attend live and require home study credit, DO NOT PURCHASE THE CE’S BELOW. Please contact [email protected]. Home study CEs will be available through R Cassidy after the conference has concluded.
