Training at NISAPI

Training at NISAPI

Now I See A Person Institute (NISAPI) offers training to clinicians pursuing knowledge in post modern and recovery theories, especially Community Engagement: A Collaborative Recovery Model (CEACRM) and Collaborative Language Systems (CLS).  Faculty includes experienced clinicians trained in these theories as well as a faculty member with a JD and active license in this area of expertise and an additional well known faculty members on postmodern therapy and supervision.

In the early eighties, Dr. Swim was instrumental with the development and success of CLS. CEACRM was developed by Dr. Swim in 2008 and combines CLS with recovery philosophy and additional postmodern theories. CEACRM  was designed to uphold premises of the Mental Health Service Act (MHSA).

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.
