Training and Continuing Education

Graduate Training/Post-Graduate Internships

Now I See A Person Institute (NISAPI) currently offers training to graduate students and interns pursuing licensure as mental health professionals.  We are an approved training facility for Marriage and Family Therapy Trainees and Interns.  Students from universities are able to gain supervised experience engaging with the clients we serve. Dr. Swim has been an Approved Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor since the eighties.

Because we have a team-practice structure, where therapists often work in pairs and in reflecting teams (originated by Tom Andersen and an integral part of CEACRM), participants in our program are able to begin engaging with clients on their first day at the Institute.  Participants benefit from peer-to-peer mentoring, and live supervision, while gaining experience in the practice of experiential, strength-based, collaborative therapy of Community Engagement A Collaborative Recovery Model (CEACRM), with diverse populations as well as those clients considered previously unchangeable, “resistant”, and at-risk. CEACRM works with clients who have been considered “treatment failures” with evidence based success and transformation, both for the “client” and family system or community of support. For more information our articles are availed on this site.
