About MBE: Taking the Facilitator Certification Program
The Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator courses are all online at present. Although there are multiple experiential activities during the course work, these are designed for you to complete on your own. The program is open enrollment, meaning that you may start at any time. It is also self-paced. Once you begin the program you will have up to a year from date of purchase to complete it on your own.
You do not have to be a licensed therapist or counselor to take the facilitator courses; however, the program is written for counselors and therapists so some of the content might not be appropriate for people who are not trained in behavioral health. While you do not have to be a licensed mental health professional to take the facilitator course, you may have to be a licensed mental health professional to facilitate the program in your jurisdiction.
If you are not a licensed mental health professional, you may be able to run the program as a coaching course, but only if coaching courses are legally allowed in your jurisdiction. The best way to determine the legality of running a coaching course where you live is to check with your local labor and licensing board or consult with an attorney who specializes in behavioral health legal issues.
The Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC makes no claims regarding the suitability for the program for people who are not licensed mental health professionals. No warranty or guarantee is expressed or implied for the program’s suitability for a particular legal jurisdiction for people who are not licensed mental health professionals.
