Relational integrative psychotherapy training
This training program will provide the fundamental theory required for certification as an integrative psychotherapist by the Commission for Standards and Certification (CSC) of the International Integrative Psychotherapy Association (IIPA). A certification of 75-hour continuing professional development will be issued on completion of the course.
Through lectures and group discussion of theory-into-clinical practice, assigned readings and participant’s presentation of clinical cases for consultation, this training will provide psychotherapists and counsellors with an understanding of the theory and methods of relational integrative psychotherapy as developed by Richard Erskine.
The training will focus on the importance of the therapeutic relationship while emphasising the methods of a psychotherapy that integrates client’s affect, cognition, physiology and behaviour. The aim of a contact-oriented and relational integrative psychotherapy is the intrapsychic reorganisation of client’s beliefs about self, others and the world while acknowledging, validating and normalising client’s relational needs.
This engaging and relational therapeutic training will meet five times a year for two days, 15 hours each time. Participants are required to financially commit to payment of the full five, two-day modules.
