Integral Somatic Psychology Professional Training
Integral Somatic Psychology™ (ISP™) is a master training for experienced clinicians who are engaged in psychological work with individuals or groups in therapeutic practice or teaching. If you are a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, marriage and family therapist, counselor, art, movement or breath therapist, coach, bodyworker, energy worker, psychology trainer or educator, clergy, meditation or spiritual teacher, you will find the training valuable provided your work also involves psychological processing.
And, because ISP is an advanced level training for experienced clinicians, you will find the training more valuable if you already include the physical body in your work to some extent. Your familiarity with the body can be through body awareness or movement practice, body-based mindfulness or meditation practice, yoga or bodywork, energy work, or training in body or somatic psychology or psychotherapy approaches such as Reichian therapy, Bioenergetics, Bodynamic Analysis, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy® (SP), and Somatic Experiencing® (SE™).
Upon registering, please use the application form to describe your professional background.
If you are unsure whether your present work involves adequate psychological processing or body awareness to benefit most from ISP, please contact your local coordinator to discuss your application.
ISP has developed into a rich treasure. In helping clients with difficult emotions such as fear, grief and pain my work has gained much more containment and depth. And during a severe flu combined with heart symptoms I was able to regulate my anxiety through what I have learned at ISP. I highly recommend ISP to therapists.
