FVCC Offers Professional Development Opportunities for Mental Health and Related Professionals

A presentation designed for professionals in the fields of mental health, human services, health care and education will be offered June 24 through the Continuing Education Center at Flathead Valley Community College.  “Minding Your Mental HealthTM” will be presented by Dr. Keith Mauthe from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the FVCC Kalispell campus.  The cost to attend is $69. 

Specific mental health topics including the symptoms and treatment of psychological disorders will be presented and discussed with the goal of successful prevention, intervention and restoration of a person’s mental health.   Mauthe will address how to identify the characteristics of mental health to determine when a person is in need of mental health services, what these services and interventions are and where they can be provided and delivered. 

Mauthe will bring to the seminar over 30 years of experience as a psychologist and educator and as a former college instructor, psychologist in a private practice and supervisor in a mental health center.  In addition to performing psychological and psychoeducational assessments, treatment planning and intervention for clients of all ages, Mauthe has provided staff training and professional development presentations for human services, educational and organizational personnel throughout his career.

Licensed clinical professional counselors, licensed clinical social workers, licensed marriage and family counselors and licensed addiction counselors who complete this seminar will receive six Continuing Education Credits from the Montana Board of Social Work Examiners and Professional Counselors.  Six Teacher Renewal Units also are available.
