Coherence Therapy

Training & Certification Program


Introductory Dyad Practicum Sign-Up

 

Introductory Dyad Practicum (IDP) consists of two 90-minute training sessions in which two trainees meet with a Certified Trainer via teleconference video to do two practice sessions of Coherence Therapy with real-time coaching.

 

Each trainee experiences being the therapist once and the client once.  The purpose of IDP is to provide an initial experience of Coherence Therapy for therapists, counselors, or clinical graduate students who have an introductory-level familiarity with it from readings or an introductory presentation.

 

Each IDP meeting is recorded and playback is available via secure password to only the two trainees and the Institute's trainers and directors. Listening to your IDP sessions enhances learning significantly.
