Does what happens at MAP get discussed outside of class?
Participants sign an agreement to hold confidential what transpires in the training so that participants feel confident that whatever they discuss about themselves stays in the class.
Can I get CEU’s and PDAs?
We have applied for 23.5 CEU’s for both MAP and the Intro to MAP to NCCAOM, California and Florida. At this time approvals are:
NCCAOM Core – Approved
California (Provider 567) Category 1 – Approved
Florida – MAP approved, Intro pending
If you choose to take some time off, which you’re welcome to do, you will receive PDAs and CEUs based upon your attendance; however there is a $30 NCCAOM fee to change certificate hours which we will pass onto you if you decide not to attend part of the conference and still wish to receive hours.
Why Rolling Ridge Retreat Center outside Boston, MA?
We continue to seek beautiful, natural settings where we can work together in a retreat setting. We love taking a working vacation and encourage you to take some time before or after MAP to explore the beauty of Massachusetts.
