General Course Description

The course is taught in a context of the five elements and the three principals , deepening and broadening applications which were introduced in the APP course. We will go into process oriented bodywork as a new way to focus on the elements.

Several weekends will be devoted to structural work, and biodynamic craniosacral therapy and there will be an in depth exploration of the nervous systems

Participants will practice skills in supervised clinics as well as in a student practicum. Supervision, giving and receiving sessions and guided feedback will be a strong emphasis throughout the program.

Interspersed throughout the program will be classes in theory and principals, business, ethics, energetic exercise, evaluation and integration (assessment), communication and facilitation and nutrition.

The Communication and Facilitation classes include skills from Re-Evaluation Counseling, Rosen Method, Focusing, Psychosynthesis, dreamwork, loving presence, trauma healing and other models. Group Process is an integral part of the training.

The course is designed with an emphasis on education, supporting a personally enriching experience for participants. Skills for becoming a practitioner, should a graduate decide to go in this direction, are included in the training as well, following the requirements set forth in the APTA standards for practice.
