About WAFCA-CE

For more than 25 years, WAFCA has provided quality, timely continuing education for professionals serving children and families in Wisconsin. Each year, we train more than 1,000 participants including social workers, therapists, counselors, case managers, residential care workers, parenting support aides and in-home support workers on topics ranging from family systems to addiction and trauma.

WAFCA-CE is a trusted resource for continuing education for our member agencies and other behavioral health professionals in counties and in private practice. The Wisconsin Association of Family & Children's Agencies (WAFCA) has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education ProviderTM (ACEP No.6778). Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified. WAFCA is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.
