Content Disclaimer

Access to the Program Contingent upon Agreement

Your continued use of this site constitutes your informed consent.

The masterclasses, courses, modules, and activities hosted on this website are pieces of a broader program created by the site administrator James Fitzgerald, MS, NCC, LCMHC, the “professional” called “Strengthening Your Conscious Self” © 2022, all rights reserved. The lessons in the program are adapted from other books, materials, and sources. The content has been curated from many other authors, content creators, and publishers. I invite you to check out other learning materials listed on the resources and bibliography pages. Material and elements are integrated from many scientific fields, therapeutic approaches, and philosophies.

Liability Disclaimer and Waiver

The following is a standard legal form of disclaimer and waiver of liability and has been customized to meet the specific needs or requirements of this program. This waiver will cover the necessary legal and ethical ground for compliance to laws and statutes. It’s crucial to ensure that I am safeguarded against any liabilities while also being clear and transparent with my clients. Being explicit about the limitations of the course is especially important so that you will have appropriate expectations and make informed decisions about your mental health. As a mental health professional, I understand the profound impact that psychological well-being has on overall health. Creating a safe environment for exploration and learning is an essential aspect of any psychoeducational offering. By setting clear boundaries and expectations through documents like this waiver, I am contributing to the creation of such a safe space.

Material and Content Organization

First, allow me to explain the way I have organized the courses. I have chosen to present each of the professional’s material and content separately, in order of topics. In this way, you have the chance to learn about mindfulness, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, distress tolerance, parts work, self therapy, internal family systems, interpersonal effectiveness, and conflict resolution from several perspectives. It is my hope that one or more of the perspectives will resonante with you.

Second, It is well known that we as humans learn better and retain knoweledge when several methods are utilized. You are more likely to commit that event or experience to your memory when:

  • Something you are learning elicits an emotional response, that emotion can be fear, anxiety, sadness, joy, disgust, or anger.
  • Something is presented in novel ways, and engaging enough without being over stimulating, and you are genuinely interested in knowing more about it.
  • You are presented with the information several times, in different media, from different presenters, and from different perspectives.
  • Information is presented in a way that is easy to comprehend, easy to learn, and not difficult to follow along with the flow of the presentation.
  • You are asked to reflect and write responses after each lesson, or if you are learning by doing, “hands on” learning and practical application. 
  • There are no tests or quizzes, and there is active discussion, processing. or reflecting to measure learning objectives.
  • You put that education into practical application as soon after you learn it as possible, and keep practicing, making it a daily habit.

Third, and finally, it is outside the scope of this course and this administrator’s realm of knowledge and scope of practice, but there other factors that influence how well you retain, remember, and recall information, that includes daylight, sleep, nutrition, medication, vitamins, supplements, water, and exercise.
