DESCRIPTION: In adult relationships, difficulties with self-regulation are often rooted in problems with early invalidating environments, but invalidating environments in adult relationships can be fostered and often exacerbated by pervasive disruptions in self-regulation. This is a dangerous trap that can snare many unwary couples. Ideally, adult partners would be able to turn toward one another for validation and comfort when intense emotions arise using tools that facilitate clear connection. Frequently, however, this healthy urge for connection is communicated in distorted ways because there is a perceived or real threat to the underlying structure of the relationship that doesn’t convey a sense of “safe haven.” The result of that dynamic is an all too common scenario in which, “just when your partner most needs you to connect, it is often the most difficult time to do so.” In that moment, a dual set of skills becomes very useful, those being the complementary skills of self-regulation and relational co-regulation. Learning to recognize and apply self-regulation skills within the context of relational co-regulation can be a tricky business though. Both sets of skills are necessary for healthy, securely attached adult relationships and often therapists gravitate toward one side of the equation at the expense of the other depending on their individual theoretical orientations. This training is designed to highlight the utility and necessity of both skill sets and aptly place them in a dialectical framework with one another. This training emphasizes the importance of balancing individual self-regulation skills within the context of relational co-regulation. It provides experiential activities and integrative techniques designed to support both in a dialectical fashion. 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.

DESCRIPTION: The Noeticus Relational and Systemic Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NRSA-PE; 45.0 Contact Hours) brings together several of the trainings we provide that explore interpersonal themes within the fabric of larger familial and social structures. In particular, the relationship between individual self-regulation and relational co-regulation is of special interest as aspects of Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) interact with skills-training concepts from Dialectical Behavior Therapy® (DBT®). We also take a look at socioeconomic class and start to unpack the hidden rules that are often associated with coming from or having access to resources at each of the general socioeconomic strata. The distinction between situational and generational poverty is especially examined closely. Additionally, we look at the relationship between styles of attachment in individual relationships as presented in Attachment Theory and how those are influenced by larger social and political determinants of health and mental health as discussed in Relational-Cultural Theory. Finally, participants in this series become acquainted with the Prepare/Enrich® relationship enhancement tool. It is used for both new and long-term couples and helps them identify key strengths and growth areas in their relationship so they can focus their attention and energy on benefitting from their strengths while collaboratively addressing their growth areas. Training participants wishing to do so can become certified facilitators of Prepare/Enrich® after the training. In completing these four trainings, participants not only look at how the themes and issues discussed impact their clients, but also are invited to explore how those same issues show up in their own lives and relationships.

The Noeticus Relational and Systemic Approaches - Practice Endorsement™ (NRSA-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 6 payments of $74.28, paid every two weeks. Final payment of $74.32.

NCPD: Culture and Connection

$300

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

Calendar Aug 12, 2021 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.

NCPD: Bridges Out of Poverty

Free

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

Calendar Aug 21, 2021 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.

DESCRIPTION: In adult relationships, difficulties with self-regulation are often rooted in problems with early invalidating environments, but invalidating environments in adult relationships can be fostered and often exacerbated by pervasive disruptions in self-regulation. This is a dangerous trap that can snare many unwary couples. Ideally, adult partners would be able to turn toward one another for validation and comfort when intense emotions arise using tools that facilitate clear connection. Frequently, however, this healthy urge for connection is communicated in distorted ways because there is a perceived or real threat to the underlying structure of the relationship that doesn’t convey a sense of “safe haven.” The result of that dynamic is an all too common scenario in which, “just when your partner most needs you to connect, it is often the most difficult time to do so.” In that moment, a dual set of skills becomes very useful, those being the complementary skills of self-regulation and relational co-regulation.
