The purpose of these programs is to ensure that faculty members who represent The Institute have the appropriate knowledge and skills to teach in The Institute certification process.
The role of the Faculty Program Consultant is central to the process because the mentoring in the field replaces one or two phases previously done in a structured group training session. Consequently a faculty member must complete the Faculty Program Consultant Application and then be approved as a Faculty Program Consultant.
There are three levels of faculty status:
Each stage builds on the previous one, i.e. one must be a Practicum Supervisor before starting a program to become a Basic Week Instructor. Each Faculty Program consists of preparation, training, practice and endorsement.
List of upcoming Practicum Supervisor trainings can be found in the password protected area of the website.
Once you have achieved the status of Advanced Practicum Supervisor you can attend a Faculty Program to become a Basic Instructor.
For a complete description of the process please refer to the chart and syllabus below.
