Your Butt is in My Sacred Chair

What counseling techniques really work?


Do you remember when you were in college and envisioned how you would be a rock star practitioner?  Do you remember feeling unbridled enthusiasm for your future profession?  You were gonna inspire droves of people, change lives, and save the world.  This typical social-working mentality is both noble and refreshing.  But unfortunately, this zest is eventually introduced to the realities of the real world.  And the truth is, outcomes in our line of work (social service, behavioral health, etc.) are generally pretty grim.


This course is a comprehensive guide to what really works in treatment and what doesn't work so well. Learn about "the sacred chair" concept and the importance of utilizing a holistic approach to wellness.  This training will provide you the tools to implement more integrative, holistic, and innovative treatment practices. 


This course is appropriate for practitioners of all levels. Course content applies to various client populations (i.e., addiction, mental health, etc.) and is relevant for services provided in a variety of settings (clinics, shelters, jails, etc.).
