about the institute

Baltimore Washington Counseling Center proudly opened the Training Institute in 2014 to offer specialized continuing education training to professionals in the community. Workshops at BWCC allow for learning to occur in a supportive, encouraging environment. Presenters have discussed a variety of topics including specific diagnoses, treatment modalities and other important topics for professionals.

The Training Institute at Baltimore Washington Counseling Center is authorized by the Board of Social Work Examiners in Maryland to sponsor Social Work Continuing Education Programs. Workshops held by BWCC qualify for Category I Continuing Education Units to all mental health professionals and practitioners where it is deemed medically appropriate. If you are unsure if this training qualifies for Continuing Education Credits for your professional, please contact your local board.
