This is a training to be a professional certified Bodynamic Body Psychotherapist.
This training is already being integrated and used also in other forms of psychotherapy, all kinds of bodywork, social work, business consulting and mental health and care professionals who want to expand their knowledge and precision by learning the muscles coding system.
This training has being qualified in Denmark through Reflektor, a company that evaluates and analyzes the professional standards in the public and private sector to assure and create better quality for the health sector and holds the standards that are required by EABP (European Association of Body Psychotherapy).
Prerequisite to participate in Bodynamic’s Practitioner Training is to have finished Bodynamic’s Foundation Training.
During the 3-year Bodynamic’s Practitioner training you will be taught and experience through bodywork the way we function in our ego skills through our body and which muscles in our body are:
- supporting us in our ability to hold our position
- stand our ground
- stay connected
- develop our cognitive abilities
- having the ability to step forward with our personality
- be able to built up and master our energy
- hold our space
- sense our gender and bring it forward
- being able to sense our self-worth, self-esteem and self-confidence and to live from it
- keep the social balance in contact with others
- develop the ability to create contact
All those skills have not been developed through the mind into the body but through our body into the mind. We grasp before we understand.
In our development we meet the external world through our senses and our emotions and by mirroring the adult people around us and we do that through movement. This is called the body ego in Bodynamic. While we develop our cognitive skills, our muscles grow with neurofeedback from our experiences. So depending on our experiences we create a deep coding system in our muscle tissues that can lead to closed or open coding.
In the practitioner training we are teaching functional anatomy combined with the ego functions. We will explore the information of the different psychological and anatomical functions for 125 muscles. All the muscles are supporting specific anatomic functions and are directly connected to our psychological abilities. For an example without erectus spinae we would not be able to be a standing human being and in the psychological aspect it is a muscle that supports our ability to hold our position in this world. It does the same function both to anatomic and psychological level.
Though the ways we are met in our life we learn to defend our dignity and our mutual connection by fighting or giving up, in the hope that we can preserve as much contact as possible and lose our self as less as possible. Also, most of the times, in a family there are ego skills that are never taught to the young members. This creates a unique mosaic in our body of hyper, hypo and neutral response muscles. During the training we will explore how to find and test muscles for different levels of response in a person. So when you finish the training you will be able to make the small bodymap. That will give you the ability to meet your clients way more precise and support the specific area of your clients ego function that needs to be developed, strengthened or get more flexible.
Among others you will also be taught and experience group dynamics, techniques of conflict resolution, skills of active hearing, mechanisms of creative dialogue
