NCPD: Clinical Supervision I (ACS)
Registration Unavailable

NCPD: Clinical Supervision I (ACS)

$275

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

Calendar Jan 21, 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.

  • DATE: January 21 and 22, 2020 (Tuesday & Wednesday).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.
  • CE APPROVALS: DORA, NAADAC, NBCC; Applicable to ACS Certification.
  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read this book by 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 (ACS Only); Clinical Supervision III = Clinical Supervision I & II (ACS or through our CAC/LAC Track).

NCPD: DSM-5® and the Clinical Process
Registration Unavailable

NCPD: DSM-5® and the Clinical Process

$275

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

Calendar Jan 30, 2020 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®. This is then integrated into a broader conversation about the need to locate the DSM-5® 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®. 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. NOTE: Training participants have the option of purchasing a USB flash drive with PDFs of the entire suite of assessment tools associated with the DSM-5® at an additional charge.

  • DATE: January 30 and 31, 2020 (Thursday & Friday).

NCPD: Somatic Psychotherapy

$275

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

Calendar Feb 13, 2020 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 is also one of the co-requisites (along with Existential Psychotherapy) for the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification Program™ (NIGTCP).

  • DATE: February 13 and 14, 2020 (Thursday & Friday).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.

  • PREREQUISITE(S): None.
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).

NCPD: DBT® Facilitator Training

$275

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

Calendar Feb 27, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Dialectical Behavior Therapy® (DBT®) is a skills-based, psychoeducational model designed to help clients learn and practice basic tools for managing compulsive, addictive, and self-harming behaviors; intrusive thoughts; intense or overwhelming feelings; chronic feelings of emptiness; ongoing relationship crises; and other painful experiences. Rooted in principles of mindfulness practice, existential philosophy, developmental psychology, and cognitive/behavioral therapy, DBT® skills training is particularly helpful to clients in the early stages of any kind of recovery process or those who find themselves stuck in destructive patterns that are hard to break, though its current applications far exceed that historical focus. This training introduces the theoretical framework of DBT® and the Four Basic Skills Modules that clients learn in DBT® Skills Training. These are: 1) Mindfulness; 2) Distress Tolerance; 3) Emotion Regulation; and 4) Interpersonal Effectiveness. It also reviews the Auxiliary Modules that include the General Skills and Middle Path or Dialectical Thinking Skills.

NCPD: Integrative Gestalt Therapy

$275

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

Calendar Mar 7, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Gestalt Therapy is a somatically-oriented, experiential therapy deeply rooted in Humanistic and Existential psychology that has significantly influenced and shaped many contemporary forms of psychotherapy. Developed by Fritz and Laura Perls, Gestalt Therapy draws wisdom from many traditions including psychoanalysis, Jungian psychology, existential philosophy, Zen Buddhism, and theater improvisation. Participants in this training learn the fundamental principles of the Gestalt approach, both as a primary therapeutic modality and as a perceptual framework that can be applied to other theoretical orientations. In particular, the Gestalt Cycle of Experience will be explored as a potent model for recognizing and understanding how needs arise in the phenomenological field and how those needs can be effectively addressed. Course participants will experientially investigate the interaction between self and environment and the various defensive strategies that can truncate or become barriers to the satisfaction of those needs by blurring the relationship between self and environment. NOTE: This training can be taken independently and is also a prerequisite for the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification Program™ (NIGTCP).

  • DATE: March 7 and 8, 2020 (Saturday & Sunday).

NCPD: Spiral Dynamics® I

$275

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

Calendar Mar 23, 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. BONUS: Receive a 25% Discount Code for our 2019 Spiral Dynamics® II Class after registering for our 2019 Spiral Dynamics® I Class! (Must be taken in same year for discount; Not transferable).
