New Continuing Education Classes for Spring 2019 have been scheduled in New York City
Lamson & Cutner, P.C., has scheduled Spring 2019 Elder Law courses that will provide Licensed Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, and Certified Case Managers with 2.0 CEU credits for each class. There will be three classes at the firm’s offices in New York City.
Lamson & Cutner is an authorized provider of CEU credits for their courses on Elder Law and Estate Planning. We began giving CE credits to Social Workers in 2015. We received approval for Certified Case Managers and Licensed Mental Health Counselors in 2018.
Our classes have been very well-received by past attendees. They offer concrete, critical information for anybody who works with seniors and the disabled, especially those who are dealing with long term health issues.
Long-term care can be ruinously expensive. Fortunately, in New York in particular, there are well-established legal strategies that allow people to protect themselves and their assets. These Elder Law strategies are usually integrated into an Estate Plan.
Other crucial documents – called Advance Directives – are also discussed in the courses, as are methods used to protect the financial resources of disabled people.
Learn about these laws and opportunities from the first law firm authorized by the NY State Department of Education to grant CE credits to Social Workers for Elder Law courses. Our firm is authorized to grant continuing education credit to Licensed Mental Health Practitioners and Certified Case Managers as well. Discover the options that can be invaluable for your clients who have long-term health care or estate planning needs.
