Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to attend all 12 weeks in order to get my certificate?
Yes. If you missed a week, you must do the self-study (recorded) class prior to attending the subsequent week. Otherwise, you risk accumulating gaps, which may, in turn, lead to an inability to use the model adequately to help those who come to you with their suffering.
Can I start this Course even after it has already started?
If you register after this Course has already started, you must agree to watch all the self-study (recorded) classes before you attend your first live class. Otherwise, you will likely be unable to understand the model, and you will therefore not be able to use it to properly help others. If you’re interested in registering after the launch date, please contact us.
Are there any other requirements to getting a certificate besides completing each and every of the 12 classes?
Yes. (1) After each of the 12 classes, you must take and pass a post-test and complete an evaluation. You must score at least 80% to obtain a CEU certificate for that particular class. (2) At the end of the course, we will verify if you received all 12 certificates. (3) Once you have all 12 certificates, you must present a paper that contains at least the following points:
  • A. Your summary of the Course;
  • B. The main points;
  • C. Your personal take;
  • D. How it differs from all other known forms of psychotherapies;
  • E. How it is meant to be transformative and mind-changing for everyone who will seek your help;
  • F. What will it take for its transformative elements to remain intact;
  • G. How you plan to ensure fidelity as you practice it.
There is no exception to this requirement. No one will be able to receive a certificate of completion for this Course without having met the above requirements.
Does this Course offer CEUs?
CEUs are offered through this Course for all social workers throughout the United States, except the following three states (New Jersey, Michigan, and West Virginia). This Course also offers CEUs for all social workers and Mental Health Counselors in the state of New York.
What are your reimbursement policies?
Anyone who registered for this Course through any payment plans, and who wishes to withdraw, for whatever reason, is entitled to a reimbursement, with no questions asked other than for improvement purposes. The reimbursement will be minus the price of each single class attended by the date of wish to withdraw.

“CBT has become a strong foundation for my other strategic practices. Thank you! This is an important topic to integrate into my personal life!”

– Makayla, LSW


“I wish that I could have joined live, but the practice of applying CBT with role playing is a great way to see the foundations in action. The practice gave a regular flow to CBT instead of the steps on paper.”

– Jill, LMSW


“Excellent current subject matter relevant to help my clients.”
