Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic:

Dear Potential Participants,

As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are making every attempt to get our courses to an on-line version. However, not all courses lend themselves to on-line learning.

Most of our courses are highly interactive and have small group activities and role plays. Therefore, we are attempting to get all materials printed and distributed to those who will participate in the on-line version of a course (prescribing and boundaries) through May. At this time, all distressed physician programs are still scheduled for live courses only. This may change as time goes by.

We also realize that you may have board requirements and timelines, however, in response to the social distancing, we cannot meet every possible change given the new normal for at least the next two or three months. So please bear with us as we try our best to meet everyone’s needs. Thank you for your understanding.

Dr. Dewey and The CPH Team
