Certified CEU Provider for the State of Illinois

The Juniper Center is licensed in the State of Illinois to provide CEU’s for Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists.

CEU’s are required by all practitioners to maintain their license. The monthly webinars offer a chance to earn CEU’s as do other fee-based programs offered throughout the year.

The fee for one (1) State of Illinois CEU is $10. (So, for example, 1.5 CEU’s is $15) For now, Workshop Registration and CEU payment are two separate processes, so be sure to do both. Any questions? Contact us.

Exploring Trauma Triggers and Their Impact on Substance Abuse Disorders

This presentation focuses on helping practitioners and clinicians to develop an understanding of the different trauma types and their impact on both the psychological and physiological health of a client and the professional’s role in effective referral and trauma treatment. Participants will also be introduced to an assessment tool that provides a more detailed evaluation of the client’s “trauma experience” as well as the trauma stages as it relates to Substance Use Disorders. Participants will also learn strategies to reduce Stigma and increase language that supports clients in discussing trauma experiences and its impact on their current struggles.

From Chaos to Calm Practical Buddhist Wisdom, Meditation and Mindfulness for Uncertain Times


During this time of tremendous adversity and uncertainty, many therapists and clients alike are struggling profoundly–socially, economically, psychologically and spiritually.

Buddhist meditation provides a scientific and practical psychology that informs and empowers practitioners along a path of profound introspection and self-transformation, all within the context of a busy lifestyle.

Body of Evidence with Dr. Margo Jacquot


Especially at a time of great trauma in our world, engaging the places in us where trauma resides is even more critical. Essential in this process is helping people find safety in their bodies when and where that can. The science of trauma healing is clear. As Bessel van der Kolk says, “the body keeps the score”.

Body-based interventions are powerful adjuncts to the therapy we have been trained to practice. Using the work of Stephen Porgess, Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk and other pioneers in the field of somatic therapy, this workshop will consist primarily of case examples and opportunities to practice somatic interventions.

Somatic Experiencing with Rhonda Kelloway


Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a psychobiological method for resolving trauma symptoms, relieving chronic stress, and increasing the capacity to negotiate stress and trauma.

This presentation covers how the SE approach understands traumatic stress and human stress behavior and how the framework of SE can assess where a person is “stuck” in fight/flight/freeze responses. It will look at how SE’s clinical tools help to resolve fixated states, transform old patterns, and strengthen resiliency.
