Well, it’s day #3 of FREEBIES! Today is your lucky day because again, there’s a few different freebies offered including a webinar (pre-registration ends today!), 3 short online self-paced courses and a 15-hour training program for those in helping professions – all for free. So keep scrolling down to learn about each free opportunity – all offered by the Center for Adolescent Studies.
Author’s Note & Disclosure: All of today’s freebies are from the Center of Adolescent Studies (CAS). I am in no way affiliated with CAS. I am disseminating CAS’s free offerings because I believe that lactation specialists and those aspiring-to-be ARE in the helping profession and WE can benefit from what CAS has to offer. While these offerings are not directly related to lactation per say, the subjects these freebies delve into including but not limited to – mindfulness, compassion, providing trauma-informed care, counseling skills, working with teens and vulnerable populations and the importance of self-care are vital skills that will only make us better, stronger, more compassionate, knowledgeable and resilient lactation specialists (and those aspiring-to-be). So let’s get to it!
To the best of my knowledge, all courses, webinars and training programs are taught by Sam Himelstein, Ph.D. & Licensed Psychologist.
First up, CAS is broadcasting a free webinar titled, “Compassion as a Resilience Tool for Helping Professionals in Trying Times.” Last day to pre-register is TODAY – Thursday, May 7, 2020! So if you’re interested, hurry up and register here. It goes live tomorrow, Friday, May 8, 2020 at 10:30AM PST (USA & Canada). If you miss the live version, don’t sweat it, as long as you’re registered, a replay will be sent out to you.
Second up, a free 15-hour completely online and self-paced course titled, “Resilience and Self-Care Basics for Helping Professionals.” For more details and to register, see here.

***Disclaimer: Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) are offered for the free online courses, training programs and webinars offered from the Center for Adolescent Studies (CAS). However, as of the date of this post, they are NOT lactation-related CERPs, instead they are CEUs for psychologists, social workers and other types of healthcare professionals. You can read more about the CE details here. I am in no way affiliated with the CAS, so any questions or concerns, please contact them directly.
