Bodynamic is a precise and practical approach to working with the body to make verbal psychotherapy more efficient and effective. This somatic therapy enables the practitioner to make precise interventions related to the developmental origins of your clients’ current problems. Bodynamic International offers a diversity of training programs. Currently there exist five basic types of training.

Workshops

Workshops are a great way to experience aspects of the Bodynamic system without making a longer commitment to a training program. Many different workshops have been offered over time and many new ones are constantly created. Typically lasting 1-5 days there are no prerequisites to taking these. Workshops have had the following subject matters:

  • Archetypes
  • Centering, Boundaries & grounding
  • Boundaries vs. Limits
  • Dance between Mutual connection & Dignity
  • Work with your own greatness
  • Spirituality

Foundation

The Foundation Training is the one-year basic training of Bodynamic System. During the basic training you will learn the character structures, the character positions as well as the basic meanings to understand contact and communication as it is presented through the system (mutual connection, dignity, boundaries, centering and grounding).

The structured description of the different phases of development during childhood, which include a central developmental issue and their connection with the different developing defense mechanisms, provide a comprehension frame of human expression. Through the education you will strengthen your abilities, so that you are present and precise in your professional work.

The Foundation Training applies to people who work with other people as: psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, teachers, doctors, advisers, physiotherapists, alternative healers etc. or to people that wish to improve their interpersonal relationships. The Foundation Training is an open education circle, which helps you to enhance or improve your skills, while, at the same time, it provides you the possibility to continue to the 3-year Practitioner Training.

Shock Trauma

Our P.T.S.D. Training consists of two parts. The first part (PTSD I) is the personal process of healing your own P.T.S.D. in 3 modules. The second (PTSD II) is the Training in healing P.T.S.D of others also in 3 modules. The Shock Trauma training is available to anyone and there no prerequisites.

Personal process of healing your P.T.S.D (PTSD I) – Our experience has taught us that when someone hasn’t worked with his own PTSD, they get too much into their own process during the course and they do not gain everything the training has to offer. So therefore we added a three module course in which you get the chance to work first with your own PTSD. During these modules the focus will be on each persons process. This adds invaluable experience and gives us the client’s point of view. This will deepen and strengthen your ability to connect and your empathy in treatments will emerge more naturally. The first stage is also addressed to non professionals who want to start the process of healing their own PTSD.

Training in Shock Trauma and healing P.T.S.D. (PTSD II) – During the second stage of PTSD II you will learn, amongst other things, how to recognize the symptoms of P.T.S.D. and the life-changing decisions which are connected with trauma, how to heal it and how to include the body in a direct and natural way, using methods like body sensing and understanding reflex movement patterns. The Shock Training applies to people who work with other people as: psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, teachers, doctors, advisers, physiotherapists, alternative healers etc. Completing PTSD I is a prerequisite for PTSD II.

Training Paths

Training can be accomplished in a few different ways, depending on the interest of the individual. Training can also be done in stages based on time available. Shock Trauma training and Workshops can be done concurrently with Foundation, Practitioner & Specialist Classes.

Average Time taken to complete training levels:

  • Foundation is typically 18 days over the course of 1 year
  • Practitioner is 75 days over the course of 3 years
  • Completing both Specialist Classes is ~28 days
  • Shock Trauma is 30 days over the course of about 1.5 years

Traditional International Path

*Note: The Training path for North America (Canada & United States) differs slightly. While Healing Developmental Disruptions is similar in scope and length to a Foundation training, the content differs slightly. While Healing Developmental Disruptions teaches the use of some muscles and Foundation does not, it misses out on other aspects. Missing aspects are included in the North American Practitioner Training. For more information on North American training please visit bodynamicsusa.com
