The Dr. O. Carl Simonton Center is situated in a beautiful setting, resembling a resort. Outside Santa Barbara, California, the Center is part of the La Casa de Maria Retreat and Conference Center. The foothills of Montecito are quiet and relaxing, in a mild climate. Before joining others at the Retreat, the Simonton books Getting Well Again and The Healing Journey prepare cancer patients for the types of exercises and mental health processes which are covered.
For those like Jackalyn Rainosek who wish to become career counselors, the program offers an in-depth and personal experience in counseling patients and conducting patient counseling sessions. The Simonton Center certifies counselors for cancer patients in the precepts of cognitive behavior self-help therapy. Addressing emotional, cognitive, behavioral, social and spiritual aspects of cancer therapy, the counseling program is based on modern ideas as well as ancient teaching. The counseling techniques are easily applied to other applications where participants are facing life-threatening situations and critical diseases.
Counselors may be certified as Counseling Therapists, Supervising Therapists, and at the Teaching Therapist Level. Training and therapy are also available internationally, in Australia, France, Germany, Switzerland, Israel and Japan. The continuing availability of the Simonton Method in a variety of different venues and countries testifies to the therapeutic benefits of this unique cancer counseling therapy. Jackalyn Rainosek trained as a Simonton therapist and worked with many cancer patients in her early years of counseling experience, and it has served her well in her later career in humanist and transformational behavior work.
