Training, workshops and university programs
Training of body psychotherapists lies at the core of our work. The EABP values the work of our Training Institutes that train to professional standards.
The Association has developed professional Training Standards that are continually updated including new developments in trauma, neuroscience and other developments coming from neighbouring fields. Throughout Europe member Training institutes have developed specialised trainings in psychotherapy bringing the role of the body more into focus.
Sofia Petridou, Chair Training Standards Committee
Training Institutes offer introduction workshops and summer workshops, which are open to people who are curious to find out more about body psychotherapy.
Longer trainings takes place over 3-5 years.
Shorter-term trainings for people trained in associated disciplines are also offered.
