If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, we HIGHLY recommend watching these brief orientation videos we have created to introduce Second Life to new participants.

Participants are also required to attend one of the pre-event "open houses" held online in Second Life. This is to ensure that participants can successfully log into Second Life, enter the training space, hear the presenter and speak with them via their computer's microphone. Participants will not need to attend for the entire "open house," just a portion of the two-hour window.

The scheduled times for the open-houses are as follows:

  • 7-9 P.M. Eastern 27 August
  • 1-3 P.M. Eastern 28 August
  • 10 A.M.-12 P.M. Eastern 30 August
  • 11 A.M.-1 P.M. Eastern 31 August
  • 7-9 P.M. Eastern 4 September

​​Participants will need to attend their open house session of choice from the computer and Internet connection they plan on using for the training. This is to ensure all technical issues can be solved in advance of the event. 

CE Details:
Mental healthcare providers are eligible to receive CEs upon successful completion of a post-training knowledge evaluation. CEs for partial participation will not be awarded. CMEs for medical providers or psychiatrists are not available. CEs will be provided through PESI, Inc. within two to four weeks after the event.
