Practitioner Training

Overview

Training is structured across a program that takes several years. This allows students to fully integrate the insights and changes that they are experiencing through the work. The flexible structure is based around a linked series of training experiences. Students can choose whether or not they wish to continue at any stage, allowing the freedom for individuals to experience part of the training for interest or personal growth.

  • Apply to the Director of Teaching to be accepted as an Intern (BI)
Level Three: Intern Student
  • Receive a minimum of 25 supervisions (12 of which must be with your Primary Supervisor, 10 with others, and 3 as group supervisions).
  • Attend a minimum of three Intensives, the final one being just before graduation.
  • Give bodywork sessions (350 individual sessions; keep records).
  • Get 5 client review sessions (can be done on phone).
  • Receive 25 personal bodywork sessions from a Certified Practitioner.
  • Write a final paper about your Rosen Method experience (consult with Director for guidelines)
  • Apply to the Director of Teaching to be accepted as a Certified Bodywork Practitioner (BP) with privileges to establish a private practice.
