NCPD: Existential Psychotherapy

$275

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

Calendar Jan 9, 2020 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 is also one of the co-requisites (along with Somatic Psychotherapy) for the Noeticus Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification Program™ (NIGTCP).

  • DATE: January 9 and 10, 2020 (Thursday & Friday).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.
  • CE APPROVALS: DORA, NAADAC, NBCC; Applicable to Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification.
  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read this book by existential psychotherapy author and pioneer Irvin Yalom, MD, available HERE.
  • PREREQUISITE(S): None.
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).
Payment plan available: $75 deposit plus 4 payments of $50.00, paid weekly.

NCPD: ACT and RFT Training

$275

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

Calendar Jan 14, 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 Delusion; 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.

  • DATE: January 14 and 15, 2020 (Tuesday & Wednesday).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.
  • CE APPROVALS: DORA, NAADAC, NBCC.
  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read this book by ACT therapist and trainer Russ Harris, PhD, available HERE.
  • PREREQUISITE(S): None.
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).
Payment plan available: $75 deposit plus 2 payments of $100.00, paid every two weeks.

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).
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).
Payment plan available: $75 deposit plus 3 payments of $66.66, paid every two weeks.

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).
  • TIME: 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • CE CONTACT HOURS: 15.0 Contact Hours.
  • CE APPROVALS: DORA, NAADAC, NBCC.
  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read and/or bring the DSM-5®, available HERE.
  • PREREQUISITE(S): None.
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).

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.
  • CE APPROVALS: DORA, NAADAC, NBCC; Applicable to Integrative Gestalt Therapy Certification.
  • RECOMMENDED TEXT: Participants may find it helpful to read this book by somatic author and explorer Mirka Knaster, available HERE.
  • PREREQUISITE(S): None.
  • DISCOUNTS: Groups of 3+ = 10%; Military/Veterans = 15%; Graduate Students = 20%; Noeticus Staff/Alums = 25% (Provided at Check-Out).
