How can I earn CE credits through PHA?

Who is eligible for CE credits?
The Postpartum Health Alliance is approved by the California Psychological Association (CPA) to provide continuing professional education for psychologists. The Postpartum Health Alliance maintains responsibility for this program and its content. CPA CE credit is accepted by the Board of Behavioral Sciences for their licensees. If you are an out-of-state participant, please check with your licensing board to ensure they accept CPA CEs.
How much do CE credits cost?
Pending attendance and course completion, CE credits are a FREE benefit to our memberships organization. All PHA educational workshops, trainings, and CE opportunities are open to non-members at an additional cost. Price Varies.
Please review the below CE policy and procedures prior to enrolling:
CANCELLATIONS are subject to a $10 processing fee and must be requested 48 hours before live or in-person workshop/training to be eligible for a refund. Please EMAIL PHA to cancel your registration.

PHA is fully committed to conducting all activities in strict conformance with the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists. PHA will comply with all legal and ethical responsibilities to be non-discriminatory in promotional activities, program content, and in the treatment of program participants.
The monitoring and assessment of compliance with these standards will be the responsibility of the CPA PAS CE Program Director in consultation with the PHA Board chair of the Continuing Education (CE), the PMADs 101 Training Chair(s), and members of the CE oversight committee, if applicable.
While PHA goes to great lengths to assure fair treatment for all participants and attempts to anticipate problems, there will be occasional issues that come to the attention of the CE Course or workshop/conference staff, which require intervention and/or action on the part of PHA. This procedural description serves as a guideline for handling such grievances.
When a participant, either orally or in written format, files a grievance and expects action on the complaint, the following actions will be taken:
- If the grievance concerns a speaker, the content presented by the speaker, or the style of presentation, the individual filing the grievance will be asked to put his/her comments in written format. The PHA Program Manager will then pass on the comments to the speaker, assuring the confidentiality of the grieved individual.
- If the grievance concerns a CE Course or a workshop/conference Course offering, its content, level of presentation, or the facilities in which the CE Course or the workshop/conference course was offered, the CE Program Director will mediate and will be the final arbitrator. If the participant requests action during a workshop or conference, the PHA Program Director or a present Board member will:
a. Attempt to move the participant to another course or
b. Provide a credit for a subsequent year’s course or
c. Provide a partial or full refund of the course fee.
Actions 2b and 2c will require a written complaint documenting the grievance for record-keeping purposes. The form need not be signed by the grieved individual.
- If the grievance concerns the business practices of PHA’s CE program, in a specific regard,
the Board President and the CE Committee will attempt to arbitrate.

Both roles are encouraged to work with the CE Chair and the President, and the entire PHA Board to propose culturally competent educational programming. In addition, the President and Board work to increase recruitment of psychologists. from diverse communities into membership and leadership positions in PHA; to recruit prospective continuing education course presenters from these communities as well as those with education, training, and clinical experience working with persons from these diverse communities.
