This weekend will cover the AZBBHE 12 hour initial training requirements to be a clinical supervisor in the State of Arizona, the 6 hour supervisor refresher training, and the 3 hour behavioral health ethics. Only participants who attend only the behavioral health ethics portion are eligible for an ethics certificate of completion as the ethics content is contained within the supervisor trainings and will be used to complete those hours.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Keith Cross (

Initial Supervisor Training (12 hours)

  • Plan to attend the full twelve hours, Friday and Saturday, if you are not yet a BBHE Approved Supervisor. The 12 hour initial supervisor training is for beginning supervisors or those who need a review of rules and regulations, documentation requirements, or how to interview a potential supervisee, especially if they want to begin providing supervision for licensure through the AZBBHE. Twelve (12) hour Supervision Refresher CE’s Available.

Supervisor Refresher (6 hours)

  • Plan to attend Saturday if you are an AZBBHE Approved Supervisor and need the refresher 6 hour training. This second day will be an expansion on the basic core requirements of the AZBBHE presented the day before. The first three hours of this presentation will include the ethics portion, which will review the AZBBHE rules and law changes. The second three hours will be advanced, supervisor-specific content and will also cover the remainder of the AZBBHE requirements specific to supervision. The workshop will provide an opportunity to create great synergy as those new to this training and those who are familiar with it work together. Six (6) hour Supervision Refresher CE’s Available

Recent Ethical, Statutory and BBHE Rules Revisions (3 hours)

  • This presentation will address the 2015 update to the AAMFT Code of Ethics and the 2014 update to the ACA Code of Ethics, as well as the updates to the statutes and rules governing the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners that went into effect in 2015. Three (3) hour ethics CEs Available
