Can I attend The STOP Program workshop and become a court-certified domestic violence provider anywhere in California?

Yes. The San Diego County Probation Department and the San Diego Domestic Violence Council have specifically reviewed this course and approved it for this certification. San Diego County's regulations are among the strictest throughout the state. Other counties have consistently honored this training course.

I am a court-approved child custody evaluator. Can I attend one of RTI's training courses and meet the conditions for domestic violence education?

Yes and no. Certain days of The STOP Program workshop and selected days from other workshops meet the requirements for advanced education in domestic violence for child custody evaluators. Since the requirements for advanced education is only four hours annually, you may attend a workshop for a half-day at a slightly reduced fee and receive this credit.

None of these trainings, however, qualify as the basic training in domestic violence for child custody evaluators. Please contact the California Family Court Services office at 415.865.7604 for information about these courses in your area.

My partner and I are seeking help for our relationship. Does RTI have programs to help us save and improve our relationship?

Definitely. RTI offers Dr. Wexler's Building Better Relationships workshop annually to bring out the best qualities in relationships. RTI also maintains a list of top-quality couples' therapist referrals in the San Diego community. Please contact RTI at 619.296.8103 x10 or for more information.

Do any RTI courses meet the requirements for psychologists, MFT's, or LCSW's to fulfill the re-licensure requirements for coursework in spouse abuse?

Definitely. The When Push Comes to Shove workshop and any individual day of The STOP Program workshop will meet these requirements. Please check the "Workshops" link to find out current schedules for these workshops.

I am preparing for licensure as a psychologist, licensed clinical social worker, or marriage and family therapist. Can I attend one of RTI's courses to meet the re-licensing requirements for spouse abuse education?

Yes, the same applies. The When Push Comes to Shove workshop and any individual day of The STOP Program workshop will meet these requirements. Please check the "Workshops" link to find out current schedules for these workshops.

I would like to attend one of RTI's workshops, but I am from out of town. Do you have recommendations for nearby, reasonably priced hotels?

Yes. Please contact our office manager at 619.296.8103 x10 or for this list.

I will be attending an upcoming RTI workshop. I want to receive CE credits, but I will have to leave the workshop an hour early. Can I receive partial credit?

Sorry, but this is strictly legislated by the various professional certification boards. You must attend the entire conference to receive any credit. RTI has tried to design workshops so that attendees may select single days, but you must still attend the entire workshop for that day.

Many people in my area would like to attend one of the RTI trainings. Is it possible for your staff to come to our area to present?

Definitely. RTI contracts with professional organizations throughout the United States to provide trainings in their areas. Contact our office manager at at 619.296.8103 x10 or about working out specific details.
