Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute®



1 - Noeticus Center for Professional Development™ (NCPD)

NCPD: Clinical Supervision II (ACS™)

$300

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

Calendar Aug 23, 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 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: Somatic Psychotherapy

$300

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

Calendar Aug 25, 2022 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.

NCPD: DSM-5-TR™ and the Clinical Process

$300

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

Calendar Sep 8, 2022 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-TR™. This is then integrated into a broader conversation about the need to locate the DSM-5-TR™ 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-TR™. 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 will also have access to the entire suite of assessment tools associated with the DSM-5-TR™ at an additional charge along with other auxiliary resources. 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: Bridges Out of Poverty

Free

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

Calendar Sep 10, 2022 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Poverty is a complex social phenomenon that is connected to a broad range of individual, interpersonal, social, and institutional variables, though fundamentally all of them lead to a state of being under-resourced. Frequently families facing financial difficulties live in survival mode, which makes it difficult to have any type of realistic future orientation. What's more, support systems that may seem obvious and available to more resourced people are not available or accessible to those living with limited income. Bridges Out of Poverty is a comprehensive approach to understanding the dynamics that cause and maintain poverty from the individual to the systemic level originally articulated by educator Ruby K. Payne, PhD, and further developed by a diverse group of colleagues and trainers through her organization, aha! Process, Inc. This training is designed for professionals and community leaders working with clients facing poverty and other under-resourced states so that they might better understand and serve them. Because many social, educational, medical, therapeutic, and community-based programs are based on values, beliefs, and practices that miss the experience of those coming from less-resourced circumstances, learning to understand the hidden rules of engagement that frequently arise out of different socioeconomic levels can be both eye-opening and a game-changer for such organizations. In this training, participants examine the impact of poverty, explore the hidden cues and implicit cues frequently associated with different income groups, unpack the culture of poverty, identify practical ways to improve relationships with clients facing poverty and financial hardship, learn to analyze resources differently, and develop working mental models associated with how to build better bridges out poverty. Noeticus offers registration in this training for free to professionals and community leaders interested in developing a greater understanding of how to build bridges across sectors to achieve the ultimate goal of a more sustainable and thriving community. 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.

NCPD: ACT and RFT Training

$300

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

Calendar Sep 17, 2022 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.
