JOIN THE MOVEMENT: BECOME CERTIFIED IN THE IWBMC™

Certification in the IWBMC™

The Jacob’s Ladder Group is witnessing and delivering groundbreaking results for individuals with neurobiological challenges. Professionals working with the neurodiverse community can become certified in the IWBMC™ – a better model with better outcomes.

The National Council for Board Certification (NCBC) offers certification in our patent-pending methodology, the Interpersonal Whole-Brain Model of Care® (IWBMC™).

We are not seeking to help clients with neurobiological challenges merely cope and exist; we are seeking to change their outcomes through true healing.

Certification in the IWBMC™

With the National Council for Board Certification (NCBC), Jacob’s Ladder proudly offers NCCA-pending certification at both the Provider and Evaluator levels.

Professionals can implement the IWBMC™ in any relevant setting, including:

  • Private or public school classrooms
  • Therapeutic Programs
  • Residential Programs
  • Home environments
  • Hospitals
  • Churches

Families and professionals who serve and support individuals who are neurodiverse, emotionally or relationally challenged, or who have individual needs not met within existing support models can benefit from utilizing the IWBMC™. The IWBMC™ comes from years of in-depth evaluations and individualized programming that includes foundations of neuroplasticity and research-based interventions.
