Have you ever taken a course in some modality and left very excited about it, only to find when you start to try out your new skills with clients, you begin to stumble? Maybe….
- There are some sub-skills you haven’t quite mastered yet.
- Your client came up with something not quite like anything you saw in the training course, and you don’t know what to do.
- You need feedback on how you are doing and what you could focus your efforts on improving.
- You are applying your skills in a context in some way different from that of your training and you would like some specific suggestions for making adjustments.
By going through our certification program, you are assured of having your individual needs met. While courses expose you to all the content and skills you need to start using these Clean Language and Clean spatial methods, the additional practice and coaching you receive help you apply your Clean skills to the population you work with. You’ll get the support you need to keep practicing so you can truly master Clean facilitation.
Post-session coaching and assessment criteria and experiences will help you be clear on what you do well and what you need more work on. And when you pass your assessments, you…
- Can assure your clients that you are competent in these Clean processes.
- Demonstrate your skill level and commitment to others in your professional field.
- Contribute to the recognition of Clean Language and Clean spatial processes as professionally respected methodologies.
While there is no international organization that certifies Clean Language facilitators, there is an informally recognized set of standards as to what skills a facilitator ought to be able to display that demonstrate competence in using Clean Language. The development of these standards has been a collaborative and evolving effort by experienced Clean Language trainers from a number of countries world-wide, spear-headed by James Lawley and Penny Tompkins, co-developers of Symbolic Modeling. At a minimum, Mining Your Metaphors’ certification programs meet these standards.
Assessments for CLF and CSF certification are competency-based. Attending the courses and completing the minimum post-session coaching requirements do not automatically result in certification.
