The books, articles and movies listed below all qualify for continuing education credit, as do the CASA Cafe events organized by CASA of Middlesex County. This list is not exhaustive. Talk to your supervisor if you have any questions about what qualifies as continuing education. When you complete continuing education hours please contact your supervisor so the hours can be recorded.
