Our Intensive Practitioner class typically begins in September and runs through June. Based on student requests and the needs of those who can’t leave town (or work) for five weeks, we have taken the IPT and formatted it to “a one-weekend, once a month, for 10 months format.”

Participants spend two days (one weekend a month) on each of the ten sessions. Mornings include 3 hours of lecture and demonstration. After lunch and some restorative time, participants spend 4 hours in the afternoon working on guided practicum while giving and receiving the ten session series.

This training is structur12342430_10153698165830926_6134004742768753319_ned for a total of 160 hours of continuing education (CEU’s) however it is our experience that students receive far more hours of instruction based on class dynamics and momentum. To allow for ongoing supervision between classes, we set up a mid month live supervision (via video conferencing for out of town students).

Our students have a 1:4 instructor to student ratio during the training as well as training discussions related to support via essential oils and homeopathy and the neurobiological and interpersonal process of change. Unlike many other training programs, our students experience a high level of engagement from day one by giving and receiving the 10 sessions series with direct supervision.

The 2016 IPT Class will take place at our teaching space in inner SE Portland at 117 SE Taylor, Suite 201. A spacious loft in the vibrant SE WaterBank area allows for easy access to wonderful restaurants, walking paths along the Willamette River, and city transportation.
