Continuing Education for Clinicians
Oregon Community Programs (OCP) has hosted community-wide training for the local behavioral health providers since 2014. Our mission is to provide continuing education for clinicians in which the skills learned can be applied in practice and raise the quality of services that our clients receive. Licensed clinicians in Oregon must fulfill continuing education requirements set by the state, and we aim to offer meaningful training, locally, at a reduced cost.
