NACCTP: 1-WI21-CAT Class Package

$75680

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Oct 1, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program™ (NACCTP) specializes in providing OBH-approved addiction counselor classes to mental health professionals and graduate students who have or will have a clinical graduate degree by the time they apply for their Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) credential, though CE/CPD learners and undergraduate students are certainly welcome to attend with prior approval. NOTE: NACCTP classes can be taken independently, as required courses for CAT/CAS/LAC credentialing, and also as part of the Noeticus Professional Addiction Counselor - Certification Program™ (NPAC-CP).

The Certified Addiction Technician (CAT) Class Starter Package provides 77.0 hours of course content and 4 of the 9 required classes for the CAT credential as well as 4 of the 12 required classes for the LAC credential. For those pursuing the CAT credential only, the 5 remaining classes typically need to be taken through another provider (though the NACCTP occasionally offers some of them). For those pursuing the LAC credential, the 8 remaining classes are provided in the Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS) Class Starter Package or all of them can be found in the LAC Class Full Package.

In other words, for those pursuing the LAC credential there are two options for completing all 12 of the required classes: 1) Purchase the CAT Starter Package (4 classes; 77.0 hours) and the CAS Starter Package (8 classes; 119.0 hours) together; or 2) Purchase the LAC Class Full Package (12 classes; 196.0 hours) separately. Either way, save 20% on all registration categories (group, military/veteran, student) when purchasing this or any of our class or training packages through Noeticus®. The CAT Class Starter Package includes the following individual classes:

  1. Group Counseling Skills (21.0 Contact Hours)
  2. Motivational Interviewing (21.0 Contact Hours)
  3. Pharmacology I (14.0 Contact Hours)
  4. Principles of Addiction Treatment (21.0 Contact Hours)

The four (4) classes can be completed in as little as six months or can be extended up to 12 months. NOTE: All Noeticus® Class and Training Packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and must be completed within 12 months of date of purchase (unless other arrangements are made). NACCTP classes can be taken as an educational requirement for CAT/CAS/LAC credentialing through OBH/DORA or as continuing education (CE) or continuing professional development (CPD) only. Additionally, these and all addiction counselor classes seek to enhance the ability of the counselor to offer treatment services in a manner that respects gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, cultural, familial, systemic, and socioeconomic diversity. IMPORTANT: The start date listed here only indicates when the package goes on sale, not when the classes begin. Please check individual listings for specific class start dates.

NCPD: Clinical Supervision III (ACS™)

$300

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, ACS

Calendar Mar 9, 2021 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: In Colorado (and many other states), the basic legal requirement for providing clinical supervision is having an active mental health license and in some cases, taking a few continuing education classes. Because of that, many mental health practitioners become clinical supervisors immediately upon receiving their licenses without having any much additional training in the specialized counseling practice of clinical supervision. Functionally, this often translates into new supervisors using counseling skills to work with new supervisees instead of supervision skills, a scenario that isn't always very effective or even helpful. As an antidote to this serious problem within all of the mental health professions, the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE); An affiliate of the National Board for Certified Counselors [NBCC]) developed the voluntary Approved Clinical Supervisor™ (ACS™) credential. This training is the first part of a three-part series covering the theory and practice of clinical supervision, all of which (when taken together) meet the training requirements for the ACS™ through the CCE as well as the DORA requirement for LPC supervisors. During the Clinical Supervision I training, participants learn the theoretical foundations. During the Clinical Supervision II training, participants build upon their theoretical foundations and add to them practical skills. Finally, during the Clinical Supervision III training, participants integrate the principles and theory they learned in Clinical Supervision I with the advanced concepts and skills taught in Clinical Supervision II and apply them in an experiential format. NOTE: This training can be taken as an educational requirement for ACS™ Certification through the CCE and also as part of the Noeticus Intentional Clinical Supervision - Certification Program™ (NICS-CP).

  • DATE: March 9 and 10, 2021 (Tuesday & Wednesday).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.

  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read this book by counselor educators and supervisors Gerald Corey, PhD, Robert Haynes, PhD, Patrice Moulton, PhD, and Michelle Muratori, PhD available HERE.
  • PREREQUISITE(S): Clinical Supervision I = None; Clinical Supervision II = Clinical Supervision I (ACS Only); Clinical Supervision III = Clinical Supervision I & II (ACS or through our CAT/CAS/LAC Track).

NCPD: Integrative Gestalt Therapy®

$300

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, ACS

Calendar Mar 11, 2021 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Gestalt Therapy is a somatically-oriented, experiential therapy deeply rooted in Humanistic and Existential psychology that has significantly influenced and shaped many contemporary forms of psychotherapy. Developed by Fritz and Laura Perls, Gestalt Therapy draws wisdom from many traditions including psychoanalysis, Jungian psychology, existential philosophy, Zen Buddhism, and theater improvisation. Participants in this training learn the fundamental principles of the Gestalt approach, both as a primary therapeutic modality and as a perceptual framework that can be applied to other theoretical orientations. In particular, the Gestalt Cycle of Experience will be explored as a potent model for recognizing and understanding how needs arise in the phenomenological field and how those needs can be effectively addressed. Course participants will experientially investigate the interaction between self and environment and the various defensive strategies that can truncate or become barriers to the satisfaction of those needs by blurring the relationship between self and environment. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also a prerequisite for the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Certification Program™ (NIGT-CP).

NACCTP: Advanced Pharmacology (Pharmacology II)

$199

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN

Calendar Mar 18, 2021 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Neuroscience and genetic research on addiction continues to make significant progress toward understanding the changes in the brain that underlie drug use and behaviors. The research has the potential to significantly affect both the way in which we think about addiction, and those that suffer from it. Addictive drugs have habit-forming actions that can be localized to a variety of brain regions that can activate the reward circuitry in the brain. This class will explore the neurobiological basis of addiction and how addictive drugs produce neurochemical changes in the brain’s reward pathway. It will also explore new technologies for treatment and prevention based on brain science. Additionally, functional changes to the brain and the brain’s ability to recover after exposure to drugs of abuse, medical problems associated with substance abuse, and the use of pharmacological assists in recovery will be discussed.

  • DATE: March 18 and 19, 2021 (Thursday & Friday).

NCPD: DSM-5® and the Clinical Process

$300

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, ACS

Calendar Mar 23, 2021 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Assessment, diagnosis, and intervention are a set of overlapping and integrated skills referred to as the "Clinical Process" in this dynamic training designed for new and advanced clinicians. Training participants first review the history of the DSM® and the historical contexts, cultural factors, and clinical trends associated with the publication of the DSM-5®. This is then integrated into a broader conversation about the need to locate the DSM-5® within the larger framework of the clinician's own information-gathering tools, clinical conceptualization skills, and therapeutic application capacities. Themes associated with sociocultural factors, personal identity, and life experience are focal points explored here. In addition, reinforcing the application of ethical decision-making principles and how those relate to case conceptualization and the clinical process is emphasized. The training also reviews important dimensions of using objective assessment tools in clinical practice and provides experiential opportunities to become acquainted with the suite of assessment tools associated with the DSM-5®. Finally, through active practice exercises and group discussion, learners come away from the training with clearer administrative skills designed to support them in often confusing and frustrating necessities of diagnostic coding and insurance billing. Training participants have the option of purchasing a USB flash drive with PDFs of the entire suite of assessment tools associated with the DSM-5® at an additional charge. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also part of the Noeticus Science and Technical Excellence - Practice Endorsement™ (NSTE-PE).

  • DATE: March 23 and 24, 2021 (Tuesday & Wednesday).
