The Center for Journal Therapy, Inc./Therapeutic Writing Institute is an NBCC-approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP #5782) and may offer NBCC-approved clock hours for programs that meet NBCC requirements. Programs for which NBCC-approved clock hours will be awarded are identified. The ACEP is solely responsible for all aspects of the program.

It is the student’s responsibility to check with your issuing agency to see if they accept or have reciprocity with NBCC. Students must fill out course survey fully and on time to receive CEs. 

Eligible eight-week classes at the Therapeutic Writing Institute (TWI) earn 16 CE hours. Eligible four-week classes at TWI earn 8 CE hours.

The Journal to the Self® Instructor Certification Training earns 20 CE hours (home study) or 30 CE hours (intensive).

Nearly all counseling boards (including substance abuse boards), some social work boards and some psychology boards accept CE hours from NBCC ACEPs. If you have questions, check with your state board or governing agency.

There is no additional cost for CE certificates. CE certificates must be requested from the course evaluations. Certificates are scanned and sent electronically within 3 weeks of the end of any term. We are required to retain your licensure information on file and we cannot issue a CE certificate if any information is missing.
