The Counseling Landscape Part 1 | Nov 12 | Frisco TX

November 12 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm CST

The Counseling Landscape Part 1

We'd like to announce something new! The Counseling Landscape Parts 1 and 2, and the PracticeMentors.us Advanced Supervisory Curriculum Academy. The what? Well, just click the video and listen to Kathleen explain it.....

The Counseling Landscape Part 1

This Workshop is Part 1 of The Counseling Landscape Parts 1 and 2

Morning Session

Many Supervisors feel ill-equipped to teach the cornerstone content to their associates because they often lack proper training themselves, and accessible resources. This morning's session is more than a jump-start. It'll give you the confidence to teach your associates and help them make good decisions while in their agency settings.

The Workshop Agenda...

The counseling profession landscape has changed drastically in the past 10-15 years. As a supervisor you're responsible not only for protecting your practice, license, and your family, but you have the added responsibility of fully mentoring associates.

The Counseling Landscape is designed to give you the big picture and provide a platform to work from. In this foundational discussion Kathleen will pull it all together for you and give you a roadmap to follow to help you check off all the boxes and stay safe. Then once you know what a complete curriculum looks like (we've put one together for you!) you can utilize The PracticeMentors Academy to teach it to the next generation!

Subsequent sessions in this workshop will also deal with many of the major topics in "The Landscape".

CE Credits: (1 Hr)

"I am very impressed with the professionalism and methodology (behind PracticeMentors.us). I will be taking more of your workshops and getting your forms. The virtual attendance format worked perfectly for me as someone living from a remote distance. The Counseling Landscape approach is the most professional and organized I've experienced as a counselor! I am very happy to have found you.

The PracticeMentors Academy provides a comprehensive and high quality methodology and system for professional counselors to trust, in order to provide everything an associate needs to run their private practice."

--Cheryl Andrews, LPC-S, Austin, TX

"I appreciate the many, many visuals and templates. The Counseling Landscape is a great reference and I appreciate the collaborative effort between speakers."

--Laura Flowers, LPC, LMFT
Richardson, TX

"I learned so much. I didn't know that I was supposed to know all of this. How helpful this is for my practice! I received more than what I thought I would. The information both verbally and written was increddible. Again, I can't believe the amount of info that will be available to me now. So grateful!

Between the facility and the personalities of Kathleen and Phillip you can't go wrong. I will be taking other courses for sure. If you are ini private practice and, "don't know what you don't know", or already know that you don't know things you probably ought to, you might wat to consider PracticeMentors courses!"

--Alison Lofton Bailey, LMFT
Crowley, TX

"PracticeMentors.us are the experts in counseling/private practice compliance. They offer a positive & informative framework in teaching, offering a variety of courses on this information. A little overwhelming and will take some time to process, but obviously very thorough!"

--Allison Lambert, LPC-S
Allen, TX

"I thought this was an excellent presentation. So much of the "legal" stuff is assumed that we already know it and it was really good to get information on how to present to associates.

I like the concept of "The Counseling Landscape". As a visual processor, the charts were incredibly helpful.

And The PracticeMentors Academy,....what a lovely bonus;
free access to all of the materials (for Supervisors)!"

--Megan Pollock, LPC-S (Houston, TX)

"The trainings with PracticeMentors are exceptional! If you want to be prepared with the most up-to-date information related to practicing in the counseling field, consider these workshops a worthwhile investment. Kathleen and Phillip are the best--helpful, informative, and supportive."

--Olivia Wedel, LPC  (Euless, TX)

Based on the description of the Supervisor Refresher course, I had high expectations.
I have been a supervisor over 10 years and have attended many refresher courses.  This course
far exceeded any expectation I had!  Kathleen and Phillip have put together a course far superior
to any of the others I have attended. This course will challenge you to step up your program and
to push yourself to become an excellent supervisor.  This in turn will allow you to train and equip new
supervisees to become excellent counselors.  If you are committed to making sure the
counseling profession continues to be a superior profession then this course is for you!

--LeeAnn Heath, LPC-S (Corinth, TX)

"This wasn't just an update...it was a new, refreshing look

at existing, as well as emerging, information. Thank you for

sharing your expertise with us. I expect to be a better supervisor

and practitioner as a result of today's experience."

--Bobbie Burks, LPC-S  (Tyler, TX)

"The networking and ability to interact and ask questions is priceless because

I can tailor what I'm learning to my practice. The printed materials,

website and resources allow me to review the information

again and again so I can actually learn and retain what was presented."

--Lisa Heath Evans, LPC-S (Forney, TX)

"Awesome training! Very informative.

Great experience for both new and experienced clinicians."

--Komeka Biddle, LPC

"Kathleen is an incredible advocate for mental health professionals.

Thank you, for sharing your personal experiences in our field.

I appreciate your integrity and due diligence in attending the Board Meetings on our behalf.

Your perspective is truly helpful."

--Tiffany Derrick, LPC

I enjoyed Kathleen and Phillip's knowledge, expertise, and sense of humor.

I was well informed and entertained!

--Pamelea Chappelle-Lyons, LPC-S  (Anna, TX)

Out of all the Supervisor Refresher courses I have taken, this by far was the best.

I am not sure I have anything I would suggest for improvement.

--Shelbie Michaels, LPC-S  (Frisco, TX)

Kathleen always has the most current information in her trainings!

--Steve Turley, LPC-S  (Denton, TX)

This was very helpful and just the right amount of (motivation)!

--Russell Baxter, LPC-S  (Colleyville, TX)

"The presentation subject matter was extremely timely and thorough.
It was well organized and easy to understand. The presentation provided
good information in an engaging way and the materials
provided (binders, website content) is extremely helpful."

--Sylvia Hill, LPC-S (Irving, TX)

"Very informative and well presented. The subject matter was timely and obviously
well thought through to be so highly organized and useful. As always, Phillip
and Kathleen have provided useful, practical information and approaches to
the counseling practice and supervision."

--Steve Clay, LPC-S (Plano, TX)

"Excellent materials presented n a logical, easy to follow way. Excellent information.
A very creative and innovative approach to counselor training. Love The Academy,
a group of like-minded professionals with a common set of core competencies."

"Thank you for offering this type of information. I have learned so much! I wish I had found you earlier. I love how "The Counseling Landscape" breaks things down. I never knew there was so much we needed to know.While I can't yet apply for my Supervisor designation (few more years to go!) I will be well prepared when I do. This program has been very eye-opening. Excellent material to know and pass along to the next generation of "helpers"."

--Tammy Kothe-Ramsey, LPC
San Antonio, TX

"Good information. Very helpful, espcially the information about appearing before the Board (the Complaint Process). Loved hearing directly from the BHEC Executive Director! Very insightful, beneficial and helpful. I will definitely inform my Associates about this."

--Jerry Terrill, LPC-S, LMFT-S
The Woodlands, TX

"The workshop was very helpful and informative. Both Kathleen and Phillip are very knowlegeable and are able to explain the information in an understandable way. While I'm familiar with most of the topics, the material presented added a much greater depth of knowledge to my own. I definitely plan to incorporate "The Counseling Landscape" concept into my own curriculum with future Associates."

--George Cox, LPC-S
San Antonio, TX

Thank you, Kathleen and Phillip, for the very helpful, thorough, and organized content! Looking forward to exploring, "The Academy".

--Traci Koen, LPC-S  (Plano, TX)

The need was not only met, but provided for in a rational team oriented atmosphere allowing for teachable moments. The potential to specialize in supervisor training in the future may further diversify my revenue portfolio and contribution to the well-being of the trainees and Joe Citizen.

--Andrew Siefers, LPC-S (Frisco, TX)

Excellent training experience. Presenters were engaging and knowledgeable. The important, up-to-date information is valuable; not a regular, run-of-the-mill supervisor update!

Cynthia Thompson, LPC-S (Arlington, TX)

"Beyond thorough and informative! I always learn so much and I'm always amazed at how much I didn't know prior to the workshop."

I like that we have a detailed, organized binder to follow but it does not come across as scripted. The interaction among participants with Kathleen and Phillip is equally informative."

"I think it is thorough and very timely information. So much is not taught in graduate school, so counselors enter the field with unrealistic expectations."

"I love the detailed information broken up into categories that relate to The Counseling Landscape. I think this is a valuable tool for supervisors and supervisors in training."

"Kathleen and Phillip are exceptional trainers that provide thorough, detailed, and timely information related to relevant topics in our profession. If you are serious about investing in your development as a counselor or supervisor, go to their training workshops!"

--Olivia Wedel, LPC, Euless/Frisco, TX

"Well organized, easy to understand and implement with my supervisees. Very practical."

"Best refresher course for supervisors I have ever attended."

"I love the information presented as a curriculum for supervision!"

"I will recommend PracticeMentors.us and this course to all of my colleagues who are supervisors."

--Larry M. Barber, LPC-S, Garland, TX

"I will use everything we learned today. I'm going to put my associates to work!"

"So much work has gone into this. Very organized, and The Academy will make my life so much easier!"

"I just opened my private practice and have been a supervisor for about 5 years and discovered things at this workshop that I didn't know before; things that are incredibly important for me to know."

--Cathy Lamb, LPC-S, Ft. Worth

"The subject matter is vital to what we do in the counseling profession and for the operation of a practice."

"I was engaged throughout the entire presentation because the presenters do a phenomenal job."

"So good, and so organized! I appreciate the supervisory resources they make available through "The Academy"."

"Compared to the other supervisory training experiences I've had this one has the most current and relevant information. I'll be back!"

Ami Evans, LPC-S, Grapevine, TX

"Loved the dual presentation between Kathleen and Phillip."

"I love the use of graphics throughout the workshop to present information. That's a core value for me."

"Very helpful. Access to The Academy is going to be a huge help, having consolidated information readily available to augment my supervisory curriculum!"

--Chip Sutherland, LPC, Frisco, TX

"Money well spent! Invaluable info and resources."

--Tricia Kline, LPC  (Dallas, TX)

Kathleen is very personable and knowledgeable

and presents the info in a clear, practical manner."

Good information and good presentation! Was very

engaging which helps build my network as well.

--Rolla Bradley, LPC-S  (San Antonio, TX)

Kathleen is professional, highly knowledgeable, and a dynamic speaker. She is/stays current with Texas Ethics and goes, "above and beyond" in sharing her knowledge about BHEC, LPC and LMFT rules, and the regulatory environment (HIPAA, etc).

--Malinda Fasol. LPC-S  (Ft. Worth, TX)

After completing this course I feel much better equipped

to help intern/associates achieve success.
