Advanced Foundations and Application in Counseling - Online Group

Purpose

To enable therapists to truly understand and help their clients by developing a rich theoretical understanding of complex dynamics, and to respond with accurate and skillful clinical engagement that leads to lasting client change. This training provides up to 24 CEUs.

 

Learning outcomes

-       A solid theory to guide your clinical work

-       The ability to understand your clients in far more depth

-       The ability to weave assessment throughout your work with clients

-       Practiced clinical skills and interventions to help clients make lasting change

-       You will know when to use specific clinical interventions

-       A group of likeminded peers who will become a support for you

 

Who is this for?

This is for those younger in their development, or newer to this orientation of working with clients. PLPC, LCSW and LPC will all benefit significantly.

 

Description

This is a monthly online group for clinicians who want to solidify and expand their theoretical understanding with likeminded therapists, and learn how to intervene clinically through live case-study. The instructor will give specific direction and case-consultation, whilst also facilitating the learning and involvement of peer-learning. These will be the clinical skills that underpin your work with every client, you will use every day, and with all types of clients!

Theoretical orientation: The group will explore a coherent and practical integrative theory of psychodynamics (how we respond, process and relate), attachment, interpersonal process, and emotional-experiential therapy. 

 The group meets once a month for a year, has reading/study between groups, and all members will present a recorded case-study at least once. Current learning will be applied to case studies and therapists are encouraged to openly dialogue about challenges in the learning and application process. The instructor will also provide case-study and examples. Interpersonal dynamics of the therapist may arise in their work with clients and may be addressed in the group to the degree that the participants are willing.

Those who need CEUs can collect 24 CEUs for total participation.

Format

Prior reading/study. Usually one or two chapters from substantial sources in the field will constitute core-reading, and supplemental journal articles and resources will also be made available. All resources will be provided.

Online Group Time. The group will meet for two hours, and be capped at 8 members. The first hour will include processing of learning and short didactic elements. The second hour will include case-study and application of learning.  

Consultations. Further consultation and discussion can be scheduled with the instructor if desired and will happen outside of group times.

Cost

Each group session will cost just $45. The cost is kept minimal to facilitate participation. If you pay in full before the beginning of the group, you get almost 2 free groups (!) pay just $470, otherwise payments will be taken quarterly at $135.

I am excited to journey with you over the next year! This group is a wonderful way to actively shape your own clinical work without having to figure it out all alone. The group will be heavily involved as we learn and wrestle together. You will bring unique perspectives, skillsets, and a welcomed voice.
