About Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Certification
The Mindful Ecotherapy Center has been training counselors and therapists in the skills of Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy since 2010. The Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification has been available since 2015.
In our ongoing efforts to improve the program, we became an Approved Continuing Education Provider (ACEP) with the National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC), effective May 22, 2020, NBCC ACEP # 7022.
The National Board for Certified Counselors (NBCC) grants approval for individual courses, but cannot legally regulate certification programs. Certification for Facilitators is regulated by the Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC in Tacoma, Washington.
NOTE: Individual course work for each course is NBCC-approved; however, NBCC does not grant or regulate facilitator certification. Facilitator certification is regulated by the Mindful Ecotherapy Center. What this means is that you may count the course work for continuing education for institutions that recognize NBCC approval, but the Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification is not regulated by NBCC. Any questions concerning facilitator certification should be addressed to the Mindful Ecotherapy Center, LLC.
About Taking the Certification Course
The Mindfulness-Based Ecotherapy Facilitator Certification Course is all online. Although there are multiple experiential activities during the course work, these are designed for you to complete on your own. The course is open enrollment, meaning that you may start at any time. It is also self-paced. Once you begin the course you will have up to a year to complete it on your own.
You do not have to be a licensed therapist or counselor to take the certification 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 certification 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.
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.
