About Our Group

As busy professionals ourselves, we all have a mandate to continue our professional education while having little time or money that we can devote to it. If you're like most people, you are torn between spending a lot of money and time to attend a workshop or conference across the country, or sign up for a cheap, quick online course that is boring, useless, or both.

At MacLauren Institute, we strive to bridge that gap by providing interesting, stimulating, courses with up to date research, on clinically relevant topics, easily accessible online, and at an affordable price. 





Online Continuing Education in Mental Health

About Our Faculty

We seek out the most talented psychiatrists, psychologists, researchers, and clinicians, to help us to develop courses that are relevant to clinical practice, up to date, and interesting to our professional audience. Additionally, some of the courses are developed in house, and all of them are reviewed and prepared for online presentation by our Director of Continuing Education.
