Certificated Training Programme in Psycho-Sexual-Somatic Therapy (PSST)
This transformational series of workshops, based on sound theory for effective understanding and practice, is primarily aimed at practicing counsellors and psychotherapists.
As therapists we recognise children's need for mirroring in order to internalise healthy self-concepts. Less known, however, is our need to have our sexual and erotic nature mirrored, appropriate to our age and developmental phase. How can therapists provide repair in this area and promote the natural development of the individual's full being as a sexual, relational man or woman? How can we meaningfully respond to sexual difficulties, including secrecy and lack of desire, in a culture where over-excitement masks shame and ignorance of sexuality's authentic depth?
Those who opt for the Certificate will be required to write a case study, which gives an account of how they are applying their learning on the course to their clinical practice.
