Bryan Bass-Riley, M.Div., MS, LPC, NCC, CPSP Diplomate in CPE Supervision will be retiring as PPI’s CPE lead in June 2020. He has overseen the program for several years, drawing unsurpassed respect and admiration for his masterful approach and presence. The PPI is grateful to Bryan’s unwavering commitment and grace throughout his time in this important role.
As a result of this, Bryan and the PPI Leadership Team have carefully considered the optimal path forward, and how to best protect the program’s well-being and service to our community. We have decided to take a 2-year hiatus beginning July 2020. This is aimed at strengthening the program’s infrastructure and prepare for its next supervisor. While we understand that this is a significant pause, we are confident that it is the right action to ensure the highest quality of service for many years to come. During this interim period, PPI will be maintaining a waitlist for anyone interested in applying to PPI’s CPE when we reconvene in 2022. To be added, please contact our Executive Director, Patti Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been working together with regional CPE programs regarding this change and would like to also offer the following CPE referral and contact network continuing to provide this invaluable service below:
