Description

Graduate fieldwork or pre-internship practicum students in counseling, psychology, and couple and family therapy programs are welcome to apply for an unpaid, pre-internship placement with us. Pre-internship practicum placements vary depending on each school's requirements, but in general they are considered observational experiences that afford students a chance to observe senior clinicians and intern practitioners performing a variety of functions without any personal clinical responsibilities. Interested students may apply for a practicum only and may or may not choose to apply for a subsequent placement in our internship training program.

PLEASE NOTE: Various academic programs define the pre-internship or practicum experience quite differently. Noeticus endeavors to make our pre-internship/practicum experience compatible with as many programs as possible, however, please review our pre-internship/practicum job description available HERE to make sure it meets your school's requirements before submitting your application.

 POST-GRADUATE CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

The Certificate Program is offered through our Training Institute for Integrative Psychotherapy and is currently under development. The inaugural class is slated to begin in the summer of 2013.

The Certificate Program is designed for individuals who have already completed a master's degree in a mental health discipline and want to receive additional training in movement-oriented, body-centered approaches to psychotherapy.

The Certificate Program can be taken as a sequenced course of study that is divided into specific modules over a two year period of time, although it is also possible to take each of the various classes separately with prior approval by the Institute director.

If taken as a sequenced course of study over two years the Certificate Program is designed to meet alternate route requirements for certification as a Registered Dance/Movement Therapist (R-DMT) with the American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) and as a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT) with the International Somatic Movement Education and Therapy Association (ISMETA).

For more information about the Certificate Program or to receive an application for matriculation into the 2011 Certificate Program, please contact the
