Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - General Information

The Noeticus Center for Professional Development™ (NCPD) at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute® offers a variety of Practice Endorsements (PEs) and Certification Programs (CPs) to mental health professionals and those in related disciplines seeking to deepen their focus in one particular area of practice beyond a singular course. Practice Endorsements are usually either 45.0 or 90.0 contact hours in length and typically are comprised of three, 15-hour classes, though in some cases other combinations are used to total that amount of time. 

Practice Endorsements offer course participants the experience of engaging in a mini-sequenced course of study with a learning cohort of like-minded professionals committed to taking the next step in their professional development. The curriculum for each of the endorsements has been carefully and coherently assembled based on thematic similarities in their content and/or application areas. Additionally, the material is shared in a way that reflects contemporary practices in adult learning theory - including both didactic and experiential learning along with ample opportunities for immediate application and building strong and lasting connections with other training participants that extend well beyond the courses themselves. IMPORTANT: Registration for a Professional Endorsement offers open enrollment to any participant, whether through individual courses or full packages.

By contrast, Certification Programs (CPs) require additional components beyond the associated courses, typically including such things as outside practice sessions, clinical consultation/supervision, skills demonstration, and/or a final certification project. In some instances, Practice Endorsements can be applied to partially fulfill the educational requirements for a Certification Program. Certification Programs are more intensive and integrative than Practice Endorsements and thus require more focus and commitment to complete, usually ranging from 100.0 to 150.0 contact hours each. IMPORTANT: Registration for a Certification Program is through application and approval only, thus open enrollment is not possible. Completion of partial credit through a Practice Endorsement does not guarantee placement in a Certification Program, therefore we encourage those interested in going through a Certification Program to apply early. For more information, please visit the prospective Certification Program website or contact us at training@noeticus.org.

Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - Registration Policies

When course participants register for one of our packages, we try to place them in the first class or training that is part of that series. This helps ensure that all prerequisites are met and also maximizes the possibility of meeting and developing connections with other members of the learning cohort. In some cases, this is not possible due to scheduling conflicts, emergencies, under-enrollment, and other unexpected events. In such cases, we work individually with course participants to transfer them to the next available course or develop an alternative learning plan if necessary. Thus it is important to recognize that registration for an individual course or a particular course package does not guarantee specific placement.

Practice Endorsements and Certification Programs are built into our annual calendar of classes and trainings. Some of them are offered four times a year on a quarterly basis, others are offered twice a year on a semi-annual basis, while others are only offered once a year on an annual basis. Classes and trainings that are part of a Practice Endorsement or Certification Program can be purchased separately or as part of a class or training package. If a package registration is selected, a 20% discount will be automatically deducted from any of the standard registration categories (general, group, military/veteran, student) at the time of purchase. Class and training packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and be completed within 12 months of the date of purchase (unless other arrangements are made). Packages cannot be retroactively purchased once sales of individual classes or trainings have been completed, so be sure to select accordingly.

Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - Final Conferral

For both Practice Endorsements and Certification Programs, each course participant must submit an application to receive the final endorsement or certification once all requirements have been fulfilled as this is not automatic. The application can be downloaded HERE

NACCTP: 6-SU22-CAS Full Class Package

$1,79120

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LP, LAC, MAC, RN, ACS

Calendar Jan 1, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Addiction Counselor Clinical Training Program™ (NACCTP) is one of the many programs of the Noeticus Center for Professional Development™ (NCPD) and specializes in providing Colorado Office of Behavioral Health (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 in Colorado. 

Those seeking only the Certified Addiction Technician (CAT) and/or Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS) credentials are also welcome, though the majority of our learners come into our CAC/LAC classes already having strong academic backgrounds in mental health counseling along with clinical experience through practicum, internship, and post-graduate work experience. We also welcome mental health professionals and students as well as those from other disciplines seeking continuing education (CE) and continuing professional development (CPD) hours. For those without some prior academic coursework in counseling or clinical experience, please check-in with us prior to registration to make sure this will be a useful learning experience for you.

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 NPAC-CP includes all of the LAC classes along with ongoing clinical supervision towards licensure. It does not include clinical placement or work experience. Participation in this program requires special application and individual approval.

CAT/CAS/LAC Credentialing General Information

There are three levels of credentialing for addiction counselors in Colorado. The entry level is the Certified Addiction Technician (CAT), the intermediate level is the Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS), and the advanced level is the Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC). Each level of credentialing is based on four factors: 1) education; 2) experience; 3) supervision; and 4) examination. Each applicant is encouraged to read and understand the most recent edition of the, Handbook for Addiction Counselors, provided by the Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) before beginning the formal training process so that the correct level of credentialing is selected, the sequence of classes is clear, the amount of supervised work experience is understood, and the right examination is taken.

Our class packages are developed for students who wish to take all of their CAC/LAC classes through an OBH-approved instructor and are not planning to apply for "educational equivalency" for classes listed on an undergraduate or graduate transcript from a regionally accredited college or university. For those wishing to apply for educational equivalency, we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE doing so BEFORE starting classes with us. The only way to know if a class will be approved for educational equivalency is to have all official transcripts reviewed by the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE). We cannot review or approve anyone's transcript. Neither can DORA nor can OBH. Only the CCE can review and approve prior coursework. This only applies to thirteen (13) of the 20 classes. There are seven (7) classes that must be taught by an OBH-approved instructor and we have a class package specific to that trajectory. This is a nice option for those pursuing approval through the CCE who expect some or several classes might be approved but want to get started while they wait. With the CCE-approved classes and the seven (7) classes requiring an OBH-approved instructor completed, the remaining classes can be taken individually as needed.

For learners purchasing our other packages, please note that there are three options: 1) the Full CAT Package with 9 (nine) core classes; 2) the Full CAS Package with 11 (eleven) additional classes (which need to be taken along with the 9 CAT classes); and 3) the Full LAC Package with 7 (seven) required classes. The packages are designed in 6-month sequences that begin in January and July of each year. The CAT classes are offered on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and the CAS classes are offered on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The LAC classes are spread throughout the CAT and CAS class schedule. Some learners take all nine (9) of the CAT classes over the initial six-month period followed by all eleven (11) of the CAT classes over the subsequent 6-month period. Other learners choose to take all twenty (20) of the classes over a single six-month period. The classes are strategically sequenced so that any of the above approaches will meet the prerequisite requirements for certification or licensure. NOTE: All NACCTP Class Packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and must be completed within 12 months of the date of purchase (unless other arrangements are made).

CAS Class Package Specific Information

The Certified Addiction Technician (CAT) Full Class Package provides 154.0 hours of course content and all nine (9) of the required classes for the CAT credential. The Certified Addiction Specialist (CAS) Full Class Package provides another 161.0 hours of course content and the additional eleven (11) required classes for the CAS credential. Purchasing the two packages separately is an ideal option for learners who are systematically working through each level of credentialing separately, those needing to earn a credential quickly as a requirement of employment, and/or those concerned about coursework expiring before sufficient supervised work experience has been accumulated. 

For those with a clinical graduate degree or who will have one by the time they apply for their credential, the Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) Full Class Package provides all 112.0 hours of course content and all seven (7) of the required classes for the LAC credential. It is designed to be completed in 6-months, but can be extended over 12-months. This is a perfect solution for learners who want to complete classes rapidly, those who wish to avoid the cumbersome process of transcript evaluation through CCE, those who could benefit from content review for the examination, and/or those who enjoy learning as part of an active and engaged cohort of committed professionals.

No matter which package is selected, save 20% on all registration categories (group, military/veteran, student, BBIPOC/LGBTQIA+) when purchasing this or any of our class or training packages. The Full CAS Class Package includes the following individual classes:

  1. Advanced Case Conceptualization (14.0 Contact Hours)
  2. Advanced Motivational Interviewing (14.0 Contact Hours)
  3. Advanced Pharmacology* (14.0 Contact Hours)
  4. Advanced Professional and Ethical Practice* (14.0 Contact Hours)
  5. Advanced Treatment Models (14.0 Contact Hours)
  6. Clinical Supervision I* (21.0 Contact Hours)
  7. Clinical Supervision II* (14.0 Contact Hours)
  8. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (14.0 Contact Hours)
  9. Co-Occurring Disorders (14.0 Contact Hours)
  10. Infectious Diseases in Addiction Treatment* (14.0 Contact Hours)
  11. Treating Diverse Populations (14.0 Contact Hours)

The eleven (11) classes can be completed in as little as six months or can be extended up to 12 months. All Noeticus® Class and Training Packages are non-refundable, non-transferable to another person, and must be completed within 12-months of the 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 is designed to begin, not when the separate classes begin. Please check individual listings for specific class start dates.

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Administrative and Business Effectiveness - Practice Endorsement™ (NABE-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) is one of four practice endorsements designed around the Noeticus Counselor Training and Practice Triangle™, which is introduced and discussed extensively in all of our clinical supervision classes and trainings. The Noeticus Counselor Training and Practice Triangle™ posits that the "Self of the Therapist" in the middle of the triangle influences and in turn is influenced by the three outside points of the triangle: 1) Administrative Effectiveness and Entrepreneurial Spirit; 2) Clinical Skills and Theoretical Orientation; and 3) Professional Identity. The model goes on to emphasize that when these four domains are intentionally developed and working together smoothly, the chances of experiencing a successful, rewarding, and long-lasting career are greatly amplified.

To support that goal, we are delighted to offer the following Practice Endorsements, derived from the Noeticus Counselor Training and Practice Triangle™, in support of mental health professionals, managers, and supervisors wishing to extend and fortify their clinical skills in those key domains of clinical practice. The practice endorsements are as follows:

More specifically, the Noeticus Administrative and Business Effectiveness - Practice Endorsement™ (NABE-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) is designed for mental health professionals, managers, and supervisors who want to learn some of the key skills and attitudes associated with successfully navigating the logistical elements of a counseling practice or program - whether independently or as part of a larger system or organization. The series provides multiple resources and templates for creating a successful internship or training program, developing and building a counseling practice or team, as well as tools for monitoring and maintaining progress. This training package provides 45.0 contact hours of course content over the sequence of three, 15-hour trainings and is offered once per calendar year. The three training intensives are designed to be completed in three months, but can be extended up to 12 months. The courses that comprise each of the individual Practice Endorsements listed above constitute the educational requirement for the Noeticus Counselor Training and Practice - Certification Program™ (NCTP-CP).

Practice Endorsement and Certification Program - Registration Policies

NCPD: Psychopharmacology for Mental Health Professionals

$300

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

Calendar May 26, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Though it is important to stay within our scope of practice as mental health professionals, we often find ourselves in situations where having some basic information about psychotropic medications and/or other psychoactive substances can be quite useful. With this knowledge, we become better advocates for our clients with other medical and mental health professionals as well as collaborators with our own clients. Such knowledge includes how medications and other substances are introduced into the body, how they are metabolized and distributed throughout the body, and finally how they are excreted. It also requires a working understanding of how medications and other substances affect the central nervous system, their short and long term effects on other body systems, as well as how they interact with one another. Using an engaging and participatory learning format, participants in this training learn the major classifications of psychotropic medications and psychoactive substances, gain a better understanding of how neurons and neurotransmitters work within the central nervous system, and become better acquainted with common side effects and adverse reactions to be watching for with their clients. In particular, this training focuses on antidepressants (e.g. MAO inhibitors, SNRIs, SSRIs, tricyclics, etc.), antipsychotics (typical and atypical neuroleptics), anxiolytics (e.g. barbiturates, benzodiazepines, etc.), mood-stabilizers (lithium, anticonvulsants, etc.), and cognitive enhancers/anti-ADHDs (psychostimulants, SNRIs, beta-blockers, etc.). We will look at some “off label” uses of these common psychotropic medications for other psychological symptoms or psychiatric diagnoses. Participants also learn about the DEA’s schedule of drugs and the most common psychoactive substances - including central nervous system depressants, central nervous system stimulants, opiates/opioids, hallucinogens, cannabis/cannabinoids, inhalants, anabolic steroids, designer drugs, and a few others. Additionally, MAT or medication-assisted treatment options for some addictive substances and/or behaviors is then explored (e.g. NRT, bupropion, naltrexone, buprenorphine, methadone, etc.). Finally, we address the issue of discontinuing psychotropic medications and/or other psychoactive substances, the problems associated with withdrawal and rebound effects, as well as the range of possible alternative treatments outside pharmacotherapies. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and also as part of the Noeticus Science and Technical Excellence - Practice Endorsement™ (NSTE-PE); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NSTE-PE Course Package.

NCPD: Clinical Supervision III (ACS™)

$300

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

Calendar Jun 14, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: In Colorado (and many other states), the only legal requirement to provide clinical supervision is having an active mental health license. Because of that, many mental health practitioners become clinical supervisors immediately upon receiving their licenses without having any 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 final 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. During our Clinical Supervision I training, participants learn the theoretical foundations. During our Clinical Supervision II training, participants build upon their theoretical foundations and add to them practical skills. Finally, during our 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 independently, as an educational requirement for ACS™ Certification through the CCE, and also as part of the Noeticus Intentional Clinical Supervision - Professional Endorsement™ (NICS-PE) and/or the more comprehensive Noeticus Intentional Clinical Supervision - Certification Program™ (NICS-CP); Save 20% by purchasing the complete NICS-PE Course Package.

NCPD: Culture and Connection

$300

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

Calendar Jun 16, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Raising emotionally intelligent, well-adjusted children who are able to respond effectively to the demands of a complex world is no easy task. Determining whether one's child-rearing styles and goals are implicit or explicit and linking those to whose needs are being prioritized can be a delicate and tricky business because it's easy to unknowingly insert one's biases about what constitutes effective parenting into the process without adequately taking into account how one's early experiences, memories, and emotions helped shape those biases. Put simply, how one raises a child today has a lot to do with how they themselves were raised and how they were raised had a lot to do with what their own caregivers had in terms of resources and obstacles. Did their caregivers have the capacity to provide a safe, stable, and nourishing environment for them? If so, what were the factors that accounted for that experience. If not, why not? Was it related to individual or collective dimensions of their caregivers identity or both? This training investigates how the underlying capacity for caregivers (and by extension mental health professionals) to understand and manage the diverse and complex dimensions of their own personal identity - especially in terms of how they relate to institutional power and privilege - can serve as a protective factor or risk factor associated with the social and political determinants of health and mental health associated with their children (or clients). We use John Bowlby's Attachment Theory (AT) to provide important context as to what individual developmental needs children (or clients) have for a safe, stable, and nourishing emotional environment. At the same time, we draw from Jean Baker Miller's Relational-Cultural Theory (RCT) to offer a more nuanced perspective on understanding how the intersectional aspects of personal identity within the collective experience interface with institutional privilege in critical ways that shape the capacity of caregivers (or mental health professionals) to more effectively attend to these developmental needs. In particular, we unpack how secure attachment is a form of unearned privilege, known as "attachment privilege," that is affected by and simultaneously affects multiple variables in the caregiver and child dyad (and also the mental health professional and client dyad). Through the process of linking childhood attachment themes to the theme of access to institutional privilege, it is hoped that a greater capacity may be achieved for supporting caregivers of all types in understanding and managing the diverse and complex dimensions of their own personal identities for the benefit of all they serve. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and also as part of the Noeticus Relational and Systemic Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NRSA-PE); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NRSA-PE Course Package.

NACCTP: Group Counseling Skills

$249

with Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LP, LAC, MAC, RN, ACS

Calendar Jun 22, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Group therapy is a powerful tool in delivering addiction treatment services. Groups have many therapeutic elements and effects that draw people into the culture of recovery. Groups provide useful information, allow one or two therapists, depending on group size, to facilitate the group process which helps a number of clients simultaneously, and provides positive peer support and pressure for recovery. This class will help the aspiring addiction counselor to understand the use of group therapy in the addiction treatment field and be able to demonstrate the skills necessary to facilitate a therapy group. The class will focus on the group process and will discuss diversity within groups as well as the many challenges a group leader may face. The class will also present models of effective group practice. Additionally, this 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. NOTE: This class can be taken independently, as a required course for CAT/CAS/LAC credentialing, and also as part of the Noeticus Professional Addiction Counselor - Certification Program™ (NPAC-CP).

NCPD: Tending the Business of Psychotherapy

$300

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

Calendar Jun 27, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Mental health professionals work in a diverse array of practice settings ranging from not-for-profit community mental health centers to corporate-based hospitals and treatment centers to self-owned individual and group practices. In all of these contexts, having strong clinical skills and a well-defined professional identity are clearly important attributes required by mental health professionals to support the success of and opportunities within their various practice contexts, but they are not enough. In addition to clinical skills and professional identity, strong administrative effectiveness skills and an associated entrepreneurial spirit are also required because they serve as the foundation for allowing the other two skills to flourish. In other words, without good administrative skills, it doesn’t matter how well one does in the other two areas because if the business doesn’t survive, no services can be provided. Unfortunately, most graduate programs focusing on training mental health professionals offer very little if any opportunities to learn about the business side of owning, managing, or even working within the general mental health delivery system and this is often an unrecognized threat to the long-term viability of both the staff and the programs within the mental health delivery system. As a partial remedy for that oversight, this training walks practitioners through some essential administrative practices for successfully establishing and maintaining the business side of a mental health delivery practice or program. These include creating/refining a vision and mission statement, selecting a business structure, developing a business plan, establishing a business budget, setting up business systems (like checking accounts, credit card processing, etc.), understanding human resources, practice marketing and promotion strategies, succession and legacy planning, and much more. During the training, participants work alone and in small groups to develop the tools needed for their individual practice locations and everyone will leave with a treasure chest of resources they can come back to for further exploration and deepening.
