Live Webinar

2 CEU Credits for LMSWs, LCSWs, and LMHCs

Monday, April 6, 2020, from 12-2pm (EST)

Trauma affects the body, mind and soul of a person and often has far-reaching devastating effects. These effects are because a person comes away from the trauma with a problematic understanding of their identity. The therapist can deconstruct this identify and help a client re-build (or re-author) a new story and then integrate this preferred story with their identity. Based on Narrative Therapy (NT).


Join the SWEET Institute and Jodi Aman, expert Self-Care Health Professionals, and learn about:

  1. How one story of trauma is written,
  2. How to listen for traces into other storylines and breathe life into them, and
  3. How to structure the session around developing the client’s preferred story.

Here's what our attendees are saying about SWEET Webinars:

"The real life examples were really helpful. The role-play helped me feel more comfortable with some of the techniques."

- Christina, LGSW

Her popular YouTube channel, Practical Miracles, teaches people to understand themselves, evolve past fear, and finally release that internal self-critic. Having clawed her way out of her own emotional crisis, Jodi shares her story of stepping into her personal power, and that of many of her clients in her bestselling book You 1, Anxiety 0, Win your life back from fear and panic. Her anxiety workbook for teens will be released in July 2020.



There are a handful of states that the NASW does not cover because those states want to maintain their independent authority to approve, or not, providers and courses. New York is one of these states. BUT: In New York State, the Office of Professions controls the approval process instead of the NASW. We are an approved provider by the NY State Office of Professions.In other words:

  • In the State of New York, SWEET Institute is approved by the Office of Professions under Dr. Sidor Psychiatric Services as a CEU provider for social workers (#SW-0471) and mental health counselors (#MHC-0127).
  • Our live and self-study webinars are individually approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in 46 additional states. SWEET courses are NOT approved by the NASW National CE Approval Program in: Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
