TRAINING

 

Newman Avenue Associates are available to provide topic-specific training for groups in need. Our educational workshops and presentations may be onetime events or comprise multiple sessions and are designed to meet the needs of the particular group. Training has the goal of improving ones capability, capacity, and performance and recognizes a need to continue beyond ones initial qualification in order to maintain, upgrade and update skills throughout working life.

Our counselors have many areas of expertise and are happy to contribute to the community. Some of the topics NAA providers have provided training on include Handling and Prevention of Eating Disorders, Ethics in Mental Health Treatment, and Communication Skills.


Consulting

 

We provide consultation for individuals and groups seeking the assistance of established mental health professionals in addressing difficult issues. As consultants, we offer ideas, suggestions, advice and act as a resource to help you develop your practice or handle complex situations.

At times, we meet with fellow mental health providers to explore the dynamics of their situation and help them seek healthy resolutions; others, we may provide a written report of assessments and recommendations. You will always retain the option of whether to act on our advice.
