Advanced Integrative Training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy - Online

OCTOBER 19, 2020 - NOVEMBER 16, 2022

The Advanced Integrative Training in SP consists of three components:

1) Skills Consolidation: Trauma (SCT) - Online

2) Skills Consolidation: Developmental (SCD) - Online

3) Advanced Integrative Training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy - Live

Both the Skills Consolidation parts of the course are online, self-directed, self-paced components which support the consolidation of knowledge and skills introduced in the two basic SP courses for trauma and developmental work to prepare the learner for certification in SP. The SCT consists of 13 basic skills units, and SCD consists of 16 basic skills units, that guide the learner from SP Foundations through Essential Skills to the Five Stages of the Process. Building on the basic information and initial practice of skills application from the L1- Trauma and L2-Developmental trainings, the student will see new presentations from Pat Ogden and other SPI Faculty, review clinical application video content, participate in small group discussions, and complete self-directed learning activities using interactive media and provided worksheets to consolidate past learning and refine existing skills for Certification in SP.

The Advanced Integrative Training (AIT) course is presented in a hybrid learning format (live with online support), with 108 credit hours provided live. Students are provided with short preparation modules via SPI's online learning system to maximize the opportunities for live practice, feedback, and integration of SP Foundations during the corresponding live meeting modules. The AIT's 6 module format deepens practical application and expands the student's awareness of the following topics:

1. Arousal Modulation and the Body as a Resource (Somatic Resourcing)

2. Orienting and Defensive Responses

3. Current Issue

4. Developmental Memory

5. Expanding Practice

6. Completion

Certification is a highly individualized process that may require further work outside of the scheduled hours of the course.

Statement of Need

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy provides mental health practitioners with the skills to notice and process the residues of traumatic experience that are held in clients' bodies. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy helps mental health practitioners to expand their practice to work with implicit somatic patterns related to traumatic experience to help inspire lasting change in the ability to regulate the autonomic nervous system.
