Continuing Education

The Department of Psychology at Murray State University has been an approved provider of Continuing Education courses for licensed psychologists and other mental health clinicians since 2011. We offer a broad range of speakers and topics that include not only clinical practice issues but also recent research findings in other basic and applied areas of psychology. 

We are committed to offering the Murray State Department of Psychology as a resource to practitioners in the area by

  • bringing them together regularly as a learning community to discuss emerging issues and best practices and other board-required topics (e.g., suicide assessment and prevention, domestic violence),
  • introducing them to other providers to help create an informal consultation network regarding ethical issues and complicated cases, and
  • offering free and low cost CE courses to local practitioners and students.
