It is no secret that our field is constantly evolving.

New research and treatment methods help us assist those struggling with homelessness, mental health issues, and substance abuse every year. As a licensed clinical social worker, I know how difficult it is to juggle professional and personal responsibilities. I also know how easy it is to lose ourselves when working with those struggling so much more.

I founded Chi Professional Development to simplify professional development for my fellow mental health professionals.

Why I founded

CHI Professional Development, Inc

At CHI Professional Development, we make it easy to find courses on the specific topics relevant to your daily work. I believe our time is too precious to be spent searching for information. I wanted to create a platform teaching practical skills, therapeutic practices, and valuable knowledge specifically for our field. 

However, managing a full-time job as a social worker and following courses is not always simple. That is why we are dedicated to offering formats like self-study and interactive live-online classes. These formats are designed to be easier to fit into a busy schedule: Enjoy the same level of interaction as in-person classes, but avoid the commute by attending from home. Our vision is to improve the quality of continuous education without taking more of your time. 

Our dedication to providing top-of-the-line education courses has made CHI an Approved Continuing Education (ACE) Provider by the Association of Social Work Boards. We also maintain our provider status in New York State for Social Workers, Licensed Mental Health Counselors, and Substance Use Disorder counselors. 

CHI Professional Development is Here for You!

Whether you have recently graduated or a seasoned mental health provider, we have live-online interactive classes for you. 

My name is Michael Chiappone, LCSW. For more than two decades, I have served my community as a social worker. In an often high-pressure profession like ours, balancing professional obligations and personal needs can be difficult. We have other people’s well-being and lives in our hands every day, so forgetting about our own is common. That is why I have made it part of my mission to make self-care an intricate part of our work. “By taking better care of yourself, you can take better care of those you serve.”
