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.

NACCTP: Advanced Motivational Interviewing

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

Calendar Mar 5, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: This class of skill development in Advanced Motivational Interviewing (MI) will initially offer a brief review of the fundamental spirit, processes, and skills of MI, and then focus intensively on clinical skills development. The training is designed to assist the counselor in developing and practicing skills to assist clients in identifying and strengthening intrinsic motivation for positive change. This is an advanced course in Motivational Interviewing, so it is expected that the participant will already be able to demonstrate the foundational MI skills of conducting a client interview using the OARS + Informing and Advising microskills as well as responding effectively to no‐change talk (Resistance or Sustaining). The format will be interactive and experiential in nature. Participants will be afforded an opportunity to obtain focused practice and will receive individualized feedback regarding their MI skills with student and trainer ratings. There will be a brief introduction to MIA‐STEP, a format for use of MI as a supervisory tool.

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).

NACCTP: Pharmacology II

$199

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

Calendar Mar 19, 2020 at 9 am

DESCRIPTION: Neuroscience and genetic research on addiction continues to make significant progress toward understanding the changes in the brain that underlie drug use and behaviors. The research has the potential to significantly affect both the way in which we think about addiction, and those that suffer from it. Addictive drugs have habit-forming actions that can be localized to a variety of brain regions that can activate the reward circuitry in the brain. This class will explore the neurobiological basis of addiction and how addictive drugs produce neurochemical changes in the brain’s reward pathway. It will also explore new technologies for treatment and prevention based on brain science. Additionally, functional changes to the brain and the brain’s ability to recover after exposure to drugs of abuse, medical problems associated with substance abuse, and the use of pharmacological assists in recovery will be discussed.

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.

NCPD: Total SDI® Leadership Workshop

$275

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

Calendar Mar 25, 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. NOTE: 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.

NCPD: 3 Vital Questions®

$275

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

Calendar Mar 26, 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. NOTE: 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.
