Hi there Illinois!
How do you like the first edition of the Illinois PERG (Professional Education & Resource Guide)? I am the publisher, and so far I've received some calls and e-mails from therapists who like it a lot. And calls from more Continuing Education Providers who plan to advertise in the Fall Edition, which comes out in July. You should all have received the booklet in the mail by now. Let me know what you think! You can also download a copy at

Thanks, Celia. I just tried the link myself and it wouldn't work. Its spelled right, but there are some sort of %% marks in there (scratch head). Here it is again: If the link doesn't work, you can cut and paste it into your browser url bar. If you didn't get your PERG in the mail and you live in Illinois, email me your address and I'll mail you one first class-

Hi Nancy.
I haven't received the IL PERG, and the link didn't work (server not found is what I got). I'd really like to see it!

I agree that cont ed is important but it can be expensive. I am lucky that I live close by to Chicago where there a lot of good CE workshops in the area so I do not have to travel far or stay overnight in hotels that cost money. I know it is tax deductible but you still have to come up with the money at the time of the workshop, plus you may have to take several days off from work which also costs you money. Then you have to pay for your license renewal. If CEs are not required anymore, therapists who don't want to spend the money or take the time to do it, won't. This will decrease the quality of the therapists in the state. If left to their own devises how many therapists would actually take the time to do it? Who knows? I think it should remain mandatory for that reason.

I agree with Terry! Each day I learn something different and that is a treasure. To actively seek knowledge on a topic of my choosing is a blessing.

I could care less about if con ed is mandatory or not..I chose to continue learning as that is how I can offer my clients the best options available

I think so at least until 2012 when the licensing law is repealed, then after that who knows? Anyone else have any thoughts on that?

Our teaching team is considering coming to Illinois to help therapists with CE's. After reading the trail of discussion, I'm wondering if MT's in Illiniois are you still going to be required to have CE's?

Sorry Rick I don't know anyone in Springfield.

Hey Pat!

I'm so glad you are enjoying what your up to. Keep doing the good work! If you know anyone in Springfield, we still need a couple gems.
