Calendar Sep 28, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Organizational and Leadership Development Certificate™ - Level I Training Package is designed for supervisors, managers, executives, and leaders from a variety of backgrounds and professions who are interested in coming together as an intensive learning community for a full week in order to didactically learn and experientially deepen into three transformative leadership models and their associated resources for organizational development.

NCPD: Spiral Dynamics® I

$300

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

Calendar Sep 28, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Spiral Dynamics® (SD) refers to the colorful way in which change consultants Chris Cowan and Don Beck came to call Emergent Cyclical Levels of Existence Theory (ECLET), a theory that was originally generated by developmental psychologist Clare W. Graves, PhD and later adapted by contemporary philosopher Ken Wilber as part of his Integral Approach. In essence, it is a progressive model of human development that explores how life circumstances shape thought processes and what the value systems are that give those experiences meaning. In the first part of this engaging two-part experiential class series, participants are introduced to the basic elements of the model, which provides context for understanding how "value-holding systems" are associated with motivation, beliefs, and behaviors. The second part of the series focuses on applying these concepts specifically to individual and organizational change. Participants interested in purchasing and completing their own SD assessments prior to the Spiral Dynamics® II class will have the opportunity to do so at an additional charge and are encouraged to use them during the class to help better understand themselves as individuals and/or as part of a team or organization. Participants who choose not to purchase individual assessments can still participate, however, they will receive generic assessments. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also part of Level I of the Noeticus Organizational and Leadership Development Certificate™ (NOLDC); Save 20% by purchasing all three Level I trainings at once; Learn more HERE.

NCPD: Total SDI® Leadership Workshop

$300

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

Calendar Sep 30, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Collaborative relationships are the key to effective teams. That’s because the ability to interact effectively with people isn’t just "nice-to-have" – it's non-negotiable. It is not the lack of knowledge, skills or motivation, but the mismanagement of relationships that creates the greatest cost to work teams. That’s where Total SDI® (the Strength Deployment Inventory®) comes in. Get the tools you need in order to better encourage your colleagues and team members to take initiative, innovate, and make smart decisions. Give yourself and your team the Total SDI® advantage. Total SDI® integrates the communication of three business priorities based on personality preferences: 1) People – a concern for helping and developing others; 2) Performance – a concern for directing action and achieving results; and 3) Process – a concern for establishing clear and meaningful order. The Total SDI® opens a window on personality by making the Motivational Value System (MVS) visible. The Total SDI® also shows how conflict affects the way we see situations and how we choose the strengths we use. By looking at who we are under two conditions – when things are going well and when in conflict – we get a fuller, dynamic, and useful picture than if we adopt the faulty assumption that we have only one way of being ourselves. All training participants will receive their own customized SDI assessment reports, as well as all class materials, as part of their registration in this highly experiential workshop, all of which are valued at over $120.00. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also part of Level I of the Noeticus Organizational and Leadership Development Certificate™ (NOLDC); Save 20% by purchasing all three Level I trainings at once; Learn more HERE.

NCPD: 3 Vital Questions®

$300

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

Calendar Oct 1, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Drama at home and in the workplace is a source of great suffering for many people and can often have enormous costs physically, emotionally, interpersonally, as well as financially. It can destroy families and significantly impair the effectiveness of work teams and businesses. To help understand how this dynamics begins and unfolds, psychiatrist Stephen Karpman, MD, famously introduced the Karpman Drama Triangle in 1968, where he articulated the roles of Victim, Rescuer, and Persecutor. Building on that model, business consultants and personal coaches David Emerald and Donna Zajonc developed The Empowerment Dynamic or TED as a means for getting out of the Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT). By asking 3 Vital Questions (3VQ) and deeply exploring the answers to those questions, practitioners can use the “Power of TED*” as a tool for transforming the Victim into a Creator, the Rescuer into a Coach, and the Persecutor into a Challenger. This training - designed to help supervisors, managers, and leaders bring the Power of TED* into their teams and organizations - teaches practitioners how to guide their employees in first focusing their attention on what matters, next tracking their inner emotional states and the needs associated with them, and finally how to take actions that are congruent with those goals and needs. All training participants will receive their own 3 Vital Questions® Participant Guidebook, as well as all class materials, as part of their registration in this highly experiential workshop, all of which are valued at over $299.00. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also part of Level I of the Noeticus Organizational and Leadership Development Certificate™ (NOLDC); Save 20% by purchasing all three Level I trainings at once; Learn more HERE.

NCPD: ACT and RFT Training

$300

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

Calendar Oct 8, 2020 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 in Clinical Practice Certificate™ (NEBACPC).

NCPD: Clinical Supervision I (ACS™)

$300

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

Calendar Oct 20, 2020 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 as an educational requirement for ACS™ Certification through the CCE and also as part of the Noeticus Intentional Clinical Supervision in Clinical Practice Certificate™ (NICSCPC).

  • DATE: October 20 and 21, 2020 (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; Clinical Supervision III = Clinical Supervision I & II (ACS or through our CAC/LAC Track).
  • PAYMENT PLAN: A payment plan can be established through the online registration process.
