The presentation will cover three areas necessary to pass the Narrative NCMHCE exam: knowing how the exam is constructed and changed, knowing areas covered on the exam, and learning a structured approach for dissecting the narratives. The new exam is based on a theoretical construct and evidence-based practices backed by research.
