The goal of this chapter is to facilitate effective lifelong learning and continuing professional competence. The authors discuss lifelong learning, the issues at stake with continuing education, the multiple functions it is designed to fill, and challenges faced with the current mechanisms designed to fulfill these functions and objectives. The authors encourage the thoughtful utilization and orchestration of these mechanisms to maximize the utility of continuing education and training in the development and maintenance of professional competence. The chapter reviews the issues involved in continuing education, outlines its purposes, discusses outcomes, and anticipates the rapidly developing trends in the field. The authors’ hope is that this chapter will contribute to a “road map” that will help support more effective lifelong learning and continuing professional development for mental health professionals.
