The field of behavioral health constantly changes as new research comes to light and new treatment options are discovered. Therefore, it is essential for anyone working within the behavioral health industry and associated fields to remain well-informed through various continuing educations in mental health courses, like those offered at Sovereign Institute.

Networking Opportunities

One of the main elements of Sovereign Institute is our monthly networking lunches and presentations. These provide an opportunity for professionals to not only receive necessary continuing education but also interact with others in the field. Just as it is important to remain well educated in your field, it is important to remain well connected with others in the industry. We currently offer sessions at both our San Clemente and Culver City, California locations and look to expand in the future.


In addition to our in-person lectures, we also offer monthly hour-long webinars on a variety of subjects. With these webinars, you can complete your continuing education requirements from your home or office. There is an opportunity to interact and ask questions with the presenter if you choose to do so.

Previous Courses

At Sovereign Institute, we understand that it is difficult to find time in your busy schedule to complete your continuing education. That is why we offer all our California continuing education lectures and webinars online, so you can watch them at your convenience. You can look through our past seminars and find the topics that interest you and watch them. Although you do not get any additional CE credits, you can also re-watch a lecture or webinar you have already attended in order to get the exact wording or nuance of something that was said or to just refresh your memory.

Why enroll in Continuing Education courses?

Many professional licenses and certifications require completion of a specified amount of approved continuing education (CEs) as a prerequisite for renewal. For example, in the state of California, licensed psychologists must have at least 36 hours of CEs in order to renew their license. Similarly, counselors certified through the national equivalent must get recertified every two years, having completed 40 to 60 hours of continuing education. Likewise, other states and certifications have requirements for renewing your credentials. Sovereign Institute provides CE programs approved by National Board For Certified Counselors (NBCC) that easily provides you with the necessary CECs. For more information, go to our Licensing page.

Not only is continuing education for psychologists required, but it also helps you be the best professional you can be. Through continuing education classes, like those offered through Sovereign Institute, you can be at the top of your field and remain aware of the latest research and treatment options.

How do I get my CE credits?

We provide certificates to you so you have the necessary proof that you have taken these continuing education courses. You just need to register online at our Sovereign Institute website. After you have watched one of the lectures or webinars, whether live or from our catalogue, you just answer a few simple questions. Once you have submitted your answers online, your certificate showing you have completed the course or courses will be ready to print.
