8. Maintaining Continuing Professional Competence
- Assess and renew your competence throughout your career through self-evaluation, supervision and consultation.
- Expand your knowledge and skills during your career through continuing education and training (many specialty credentials have specific continuing education requirements). Be sure to document all activities.
- Before using a modality not included in your professional training (e.g., biofeedback or hypnosis), enroll in and successfully complete programs of study in recognized institutions and/or with recognized authorities to ensure competency.
