HOW THE RAI CURRICULA RELATE TO LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs AND LEPs
Training in the methods and techniques of Radical Aliveness provides professionals with an opportunity to enhance your understanding and practice of counseling, psychotherapy and social work. All Institute programs and courses are designed to give professionals in these disciplines innovative, cutting-edge principles and a powerful set of therapeutic tools you can directly utilize and integrate into your practice. This work will expand and improve your effectiveness and success in working with individual clients, couples, families, and groups of any size or in any environment.
The Radical Aliveness modality understands that the way in which energy is held or moved in the body is a reflection of a person’s personality and emotional and psychological states. The approach is marked by its distinct ability to apply this knowledge to work with group interactions and conflict resolution on both a small and a large-scale.
With this training, MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs will have additional tools to draw upon in order to interpret and diagnose client behaviors, navigate group and family dynamics, and mediate and manage conflicts in families, marriage, groups and even in organizations. You will learn a set of somatic techniques that will provide your clients with the option to engage in movement, posture expressions, and voice exercises in order to bring more consciousness and awareness to held and released energetic patterns in the body. Using these practices, you will be able to offer your clients new ways of expressing themselves, while facilitating desirable changes in behavior and an increase in your clients’ rates of recovery from anxiety, trauma, and depression. Integrating Radical Aliveness techniques into your practice can significantly assist you in leading clients toward healing from painful past experiences and trauma. This work allows people to step into a life of self-responsibility, empowerment, and positive leadership.
An important part of the training is the practitioner’s deep personal exploration leading to an increased ability to handle powerful emotions, conflicts and challenging situations as they arise with your clients in their practices.
