NCPD: 1-WS23-4e-Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy-Practice Endorsement™ (NIGT-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours)

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Practice Endorsement™ (NIGT-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) provides mental health professionals with a basic framework for understanding Gestalt Therapy and beginning to work experientially in the present moment with their clients. In addition, it also provides the three prerequisites necessary for application into the more comprehensive Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy™ - Certification Program (NIGT-CP). Historically, Gestalt Therapy arises from the lineage of somatic psychotherapy and thus having some understanding about how to work with sensation and movement in the therapeutic dyad is quite important. Further, Gestalt Therapy employs the phenomenological approach found in existential philosophy, an approach that appreciates the capacity for self-investigation and working with the tensions between opposite polarities, so some familiarity with existential therapy becomes an important background to have. Finally, the skill of being able to recognize and facilitate the expression of life patterns as they attempt to arise, manifest, and dissipate within the subjective experience of clients is one of the foundational skills explored in Gestalt Therapy and therefore training participants learn more about how to navigate that process through practice with the Gestalt Cycle of Experience. Integrative elements that are included beyond traditional Gestalt Therapy include more attention to factors such as culture, development, trauma, intersectional identities between client and practitioner, and much more. Learn more about the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy™ - Certification Program (NIGT-CP) HERE.

The Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Practice Endorsement™ (NIGT-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) includes the following individual trainings:

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

Payment plan available: $200 deposit plus 5 payments of $86.66, paid weekly. Final payment of $86.70.

NCPD: Existential Psychotherapy

$300

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

Calendar Jan 26, 2023 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Many counselors focus on assisting clients to develop stronger egos, greater self-esteem, and increased interpersonal connection. Though these are admirable goals; when clients experience trauma, loss, or other threats to identity; they are often left feeling hopeless, without purpose, and struggling to create meaning in their life. Existential thought in psychotherapy provides a foundation to meet clients at this life stage by exploring the four elements of “ultimate concern” that lie under the surface of many of these presenting problems. The four ultimate concerns are: 1) Death, 2) Freedom, 3) Isolation, and 4) Meaninglessness. Learning to identify and work with these themes directly can be a powerful resource for mental health professionals on two levels. First, it can serve as a profound lens that frames and gives nuance to many of the surface issues and concerns that clients bring with them into the consulting room. Second, it can help mental health professionals better understand how to tolerate and relate to the existential anxiety experienced by their clients and by themselves with more choice, responsibility, congruent meaning-making, and effective action. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and also as part of the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Practice Endorsement™ (NIGT-PE) and/or the more comprehensive Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Certification Program™ (NIGT-CP); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NIGT-PE Course Package.

NACCTP: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

$199

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

Calendar Feb 2, 2023 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a treatment approach that has gained widespread application in the treatment of addictions and mental health challenges. Several important features of CBT make it particularly promising as a treatment for problematic substance use and dependence. CBT has been extensively researched and has solid empirical support as an evidence-based treatment (EBT) for addictions. CBT is structured, goal-oriented, and focused on the immediate problems faced by people with substance use disorders and addictions who are struggling to control their use patterns or problematic behavior. It is a flexible, individualized approach that can be adapted to a wide range of clients and a wide range of treatment settings and formats. CBT works well with individuals as well as in group therapy. Participants in this course learn and practice effective ways to integrate tools specific to CBT in a comprehensive treatment strategy - including 3rd wave mindfulness-based approaches. 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); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NPAC-CP Course Package.

NCPD: Clinical Supervision II (ACS™)

$300

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

Calendar Feb 7, 2023 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 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. 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: 1-WS23-4b-Noeticus Evidence-Based Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NEBA-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours)

$720

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

Calendar Feb 9, 2023 at 9 am

Save 20% on all standard registration categories (general, group, military/veteran, student) when purchasing this or any of our class or training packages. See details below!

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Evidence-Based Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NEBA-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 Evidence-Based Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NEBA-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) is designed for mental health professionals, managers, and supervisors who want to learn three of the most popular and widely used evidence-based approaches to counseling and therapeutic change: ACT, DBT®, and MI. All too often these approaches are not presented in any great depth in graduate school theories of counseling courses, but they frequently are what's asked for in the workplace as well as what's needed when working with clients (and clinicians) who are stuck somewhere in the change process. The series provides multiple resources and tools for practicing and implementing each of these approaches. This training package provides 45.0 contact hours of course content over the sequence of three, 15-hour trainings and is offered twice per calendar year. The three training intensives are designed to be completed in six 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). Learn more HERE.

The Noeticus Evidence-Based Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NEBA-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) includes the following individual trainings:

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

Payment plan available: $200 deposit plus 8 payments of $65.00, paid weekly.

NCPD: ACT and RFT Training

$300

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

Calendar Feb 9, 2023 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT; pronounced like the word "act") is a mindfulness-based, third-wave cognitive/behavioral therapy developed to guide clients in discovering what truly matters in their lives so they can move more effectively towards those things and away from what doesn’t matter. Based in the philosophy of Functional Contextualism and organized around principles of Relational Frame Theory (RFT), the primary aim of ACT is to increase psychological flexibility, which has been shown to be associated with having a fuller, richer, more meaningful life. ACT cultivates psychological flexibility through experiential practices that strengthen six key, interlacing processes, often referred to as the ACT Hexaflex. These are: 1) Cognitive Defusion; 2) Acceptance; 3) Present Moment Contact; 4) Cultivating Self-as-Context; 4) Values Strengthening; and 6) Taking Committed Action. The good news is that the ACT skills associated with strengthening psychological flexibility through the six processes have been shown to be applicable to many other theoretical orientations and approaches to counseling. This experiential training introduces practitioners to the foundational philosophy of ACT along with the theoretical framework of RFT that supports it. It then provides participants with the opportunity to learn and practice various tools for facilitating clients through the ACT Hexaflex so that they are more open to experience, aware of their choices, and engaged in purposeful action. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and also as part of the Noeticus Evidence-Based Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NEBA-PE) and/or the more comprehensive Noeticus Counselor Training and Practice - Certification Program™ (NCTP-CP); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NEBA-PE Course Package.

NCPD: Somatic Psychotherapy

$300

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

Calendar Feb 11, 2023 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Our first experiences of who we are come through the sensorimotor channels of our bodies. Our sense of identity is established by the quality of interactions we have with the people in our environment and the way they mirror back to us the type of world in which we live. Through the developmental process we cultivate a more abstract concept of our self, but the original sensorimotor experiences that shaped our identity form a strong template that continues to inform and shape our perceptions and experiences throughout our lives. Somatic psychology is the study of how these patterns of physical and psychological experience inform and interact with one another through complex and interconnected intrapsychic and interpersonal dynamics that we are only beginning to understand through channels of inquiry such as contemporary neuroscience, attachment theory, and intersubjective psychology. Participants in this training learn basic elements of how the body communicates with the self and the environment by exploring some of the fundamental principles of somatic psychology, including the fascinating relationship between sensation on the bodily level and movement expression in the world. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and also as part of the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Practice Endorsement™ (NIGT-PE) and/or the more comprehensive Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy - Certification Program™ (NIGT-CP); Save an additional 20% by purchasing the complete NIGT-PE Course Package.
