In the past few years, virtually delivered therapy has become a mainstream method used by mental health professionals to treat patients outside the confines of a traditional office. As a result of COVID-19, virtual therapy has proliferated considerably, forcing many mental health providers to offer virtual treatments for their patients.
The Lancaster Host is now Wyndham Lancaster Resort and Convention Center
For many years, we hosted our live continuing education seminars at the Lancaster Host, a hotel and resort located in the heart of Amish Country, Lancaster, PA. The hotel was often very generous and would provide discounts for our attendees planning to stay the night. As a hotel and convention center with a large auditorium, The Lancaster Host was a great option to accommodate our many guests for our two-day seminars.
As a result of the COVID-19, many mental health providers now offer virtual treatments. These modalities have many challenges for therapists. These mini-webinar CE home study programs focus on various aspects of online therapy, providing virtual treatment, and interactions with clients from a distance.
Each of these Home Study programs will run for two hours. As home study webinars, they qualify for 2 CEUs with a post-test.
Below you will find brief descriptions regarding the programs:

We want to keep you apprised of our plans to offer live CE programs since we sent out our last email regarding the COVID-19 crisis.
Our plans have not changed – we expect to host all our live Seminar/Webinar CE programs. This includes our Monday & Tuesday, April 20 & 21 program, Unleashing the Power of DBT presented by Dr. Charles Swenson.
We are aware that PA Governor Wolf has banned all non-essential businesses. We support this ban and hope everyone complies with these social distancing recommendations and orders.
What would be your criteria for creating Continuing Education (CE) programs? Here’s what I have come up with:
The program would satisfy my professional CE requirements.
That’s why J&K gets approval to offer CE for social workers, psychologists, counselors, educators, nurses, and lots of other human service providers. We never charge extra for providing CE certificates.
Considering a Live CE Webinar?
Have you considered registering for a live continuing education webinar compared to completing a CEU home study program or attending the seminar presentation in Lancaster? Here are some things to keep in mind:
Our Live Webinars are similar to our Streaming Video and DVD home study programs—
All our CEU programs are developed from the recordings of our live CE seminars.
A Quick History of J&K Seminars
Judi & I (Ken) started J&K in 1990 as a part-time business. I had left my job with Lancaster Co. MH/MR and started my own private psychological practice. Judi was working for a local medical supply company. I learned how to organize and offer continuing education seminars for mental health professionals while working in my Lancaster Co. job. We figured putting on CE seminars would provide some extra income — after all, how hard could it be?
