Unusual Paraphilias – New PDResources Online Continuing Education Course

Unusual Paraphilias

By: Louis R. Franzini, PhD

Unusual Paraphilias is a new 1-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that describes a number of paraphilias and specific fetishes, which are generally quite rare but still fascinating…

Unusual ParaphiliasA paraphilia involves stimulating sexual arousal in someone by an object or fantasy that for most people is commonplace and not sexually related, either directly or symbolically. What you will learn in this course is that there is a clear continuum of unusualness for paraphilias. There are some familiar ones and there are also very many paraphilias reported in the clinical literature which are indeed extremely unusual. This course will include discussions of the eight standard Paraphilic Disorders included in the DSM-5: 1) Voyeuristic Disorder, 2) Exhibitionistic Disorder, 3) Frotteuristic Disorder, 4) Sexual Masochism Disorder, 5) Sexual Sadism Disorder, 6) Pedophilic Disorder, 7) Fetishistic Disorder, and 8) Transvestic Disorders, as well as a number of additional paraphilias and specific fetishes, which are generally quite rare. Course #10-85 | 2015 | 15 pages | 6 posttest questions

Ohio Social Workers/MFTs Can Now Earn All 30 CE Hours Through Distance Learning!

Effective July 3, 2010: Ohio-licensed Social Workers and Marriage & Family Therapists (MFTs) can now earn all 30 of their required continuing education hours through distance learning courses. This was previously limited to 15 hours (Counselors are still limited to 15 hours). “Distance Learning means a formal education process, in which instruction occurs when the students and instructor(s) are not located in the same place.” Distance learning refers to all non traditional methods of presentation (home study, online courses, etc.) except video conferencing.

Social Workers: Any course that is accredited by the ASWB will be accepted by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker & MFT Board for continuing social work education. If the course materials say “ACE approved” or “approved as a provider for continuing education by the ASWB,” it is acceptable.

Professional Development Resources is approved as a provider of continuing education for social workers by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB Provider #1046, ACE Program).

Counselors & MFTs: Courses must be approved by the CSWMFT Board as designated by the provider approval code. The provider approval code will begin with a prefix of a variation of these letters RCSTX followed by numbers. A (C ) in the prefix shows the program is approved for counselors, an (S ) for social workers and (T) for Marriage & Family Therapists.

Professional Development Resources is approved as a provider of continuing education for Social Workers, Counselors & MFTs by the Ohio Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Board (Provider #RCST100501). Courses that are approved by the Ohio CSWMFT Board have the provider code listed in the accreditation statement on the course details page.

All licensees are required to earn 3 hours of continuing education in ethics each renewal period. Professional Development Resources offers a variety of ethics courses for Social Workers, Counselors & MFTs.

Counselors holding the supervising counselor designation must complete 6 hours of supervisory training per renewal cycle.

Social Workers holding the supervising designation must complete 3 hours of supervisory training per renewal cycle.
