The first year of the program is called Focusing-Oriented Therapy (FOT). FOT is a body-centered and relational process that helps therapists keep clients safe and regulated while unwinding chronically stuck and traumatic experiences. In the first year of our program, you will learn Focusing as a self-experiencing process while also learning to help clients shift from distraction and disconnection to being connected and present.
The second year of the program is called Focusing-Oriented Therapy and Complex Trauma (FOTCT). The program builds on the solid foundation of skills learned in the first year, while adding depth to your understanding of Focusing and its application for unwinding chronic stress and trauma. A significant amount of Focusing experience is required to participate.
The program leads to certification if desired.
