    • Must be a licensed mental health practitioner or a mental health practitioner-in-training

    *A maximum of ten consultation CEs are allowed per 24 month period for license renewal requirements (IDOPL Rule 425.3.e).  The ten CEs are valued at between $170 and $380 at Treasure Valley CE rates. This benefit alone more than pays for the $100 for two years of membership dues.

    What is Peer Consultation?

    Peer consultation is a group comprised of clinicians (mental health profession students are welcome too!) who meet to provide feedback and support as they discuss client cases, ethical dilemmas, and professional issues.

    What should I bring?

    Bring a condensed, de-identified clinical issue to share. Or, come and just be a part of giving feedback to other providers.

    What are the benefits of Peer Consultation Groups?

    • Improve your clinical skills and effectiveness
    • Feel connected with other providers
    • Reduce your isolation
    • Expand your professional network
    • Access to the wisdom and experience of other providers
    • Decrease malpractice risk through consultation that helps you to recognize and navigate ethical challenges
    • Emotional support
    • Lessen your risk of burnout
    NOTE: Peer Consultation requires active participation and is enhanced by additional input and viewpoints. If there are less than 3 participants (not including the facilitator) in attendance, unfortunately, IMHCA will have to cancel the event. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
