The cost for a typical workshop or webinar (six continuing education units), $2,500, includes pre-workshop meeting with key leaders and employees, customization of slides and handouts, review and fine-tuning of day’s agenda with stakeholders, provision of all documents needed for approval of continuing education units, delivery of multimedia content, and distribution of slides to all participants. There is an additional fee ($1,500) when a cofacilitator assists, which applies for any workshops with a racial justice theme.
Single half-day workshops/webinars are $1,500, which includes the same activities. For keynotes and shorter workshops, a separate fee is negotiated.
Because of Zoom fatigue, webinars that satisfy the 6 CEU requirement are best scheduled over two mornings (8:30 am – noon, with half hour break).
For anything in-person offered more than 25 miles outside the Portland metropolitan area, there is an additional cost for mileage and lodging.
For workshops larger than fifty participants, depending on the topic, I will sometimes negotiate additional compensation to allow for a co-facilitator. For webinars larger than one hundred participants, I charge additional to expand the zoom platform.
Trauma-informed workshops which explore sensitive, often very personal, themes should never be made mandatory. Participants can be encouraged to join and assured there were be breaks and that all activities are optional, but no one should attend unless they consent.
Continuing Education Approval
All of my workshops have been previously approved for continuing education through National Association of Social Workers (and most Boards have reciprocity). Agencies wishing to have workshops approved for continuing education units will pay an additional $500 if they want me to apply for the CEUs for them, or they can apply directly themselves, which is often preferred as a cost savings.
Because of the interactional nature of clinical webinars/workshops, and the potential sharing of confidential information between clinical colleagues, it is not appropriate to record them.
