SLR Practitioner Training and Certification


Why the Program?

Despite Ross having local clients who he refers to the trained and supervised Clinical Care Consultants counseling center staff, he has had to decline most requests for help. This “problem” inspired Ross to create The Self-Love Recovery Practitioner Certification Program. With a larger network of trained and certified psychotherapists, more people can receive help for their SLDD. Having a collaborative and supportive network of like-minded and similarly trained treatment practitioners will create healing opportunities for clients and career opportunities for fellow CSR’s. In a addition, it will create a stream of referrals. The Self-Love Recovery Practitioner Certification Program is a win-win for everyone!

The Goals of the Program

Program Summary

This unique one of a kind certification program provides opportunities for education, coaching, mentoring and clinical supervision by the creator of the “Human Magnet Syndrome,” “Codependency Cure,” and “Self-Love Recovery” theories, explanations, and treatment methods.

Ross, an international expert on Self-Love Deficit Disorder (codependency), Self-Love Recovery, Pathological Narcissism, Trauma Resolution, Sex Addiction, and other addictions, will provide the one on one training and supervision. Through an intensive training, mentoring and supervision experience, the CSLDD candidate will learn about the concepts, theories, and psychotherapy techniques that will fill the “toolbox” needed to resolve SLDD and achieve Self-Love Recovery.

Group consultation services will be arranged once the program has accrued 5 participants. A fee of $60 an hour is not included in the program agreement.
