The 2021 Education Course is open to anyone who has completed an Introductory Course, OR has done a previous year of this Course or equivalent, and has a reasonable basic understanding of the theory and practice of IoPT.
Those who have little knowledge and experience of the work are advised to consider attending open workshops any of the people listed on the personnel page and the next Introductory Course. If you are uncertain of your eligibility please check with Vivian.
As a one-year course this is suitable for personal and professional development purposes, and, for those interested, provides a path towards practice as a professional.
Each year is made up of eight 3-day modules, a total of 24 days, and offers a mixed learning environment of new students and continuing students. The theory and therapeutic method are complex and this learning format allows students to tailor their own pace, continually deepening their understanding through collaboration with those more experienced.
Applications will be possible from 1 June 2020.

M. 3: The trauma of Identity

M. 5: The Traumabiography
M. 6: The Method
M. 7: Perpetrator-Victim dynamics
M. 8: Putting it all together
The course will primarily involve personal explorations using the Intention Method, in addition to discussion and presentations.
The day before each training module is a Ongoing Support Group day. This is open to past and present students and practitioners to do personal work with Vivian. The day runs from 9.30-6.00. The cost is £20 to attend (covers Centre costs and refreshments), and for those who do a personal exploration the cost is £100, which includes the £20 attendance cost (ie £80 for the personal work). See Regular Groups.
In addition current students are welcome to attend any open workshops with me as a further learning opportunity. See the Workshops page for more information.
Please note that it is not possible to make up any missed days or modules in subsequent years.
If you need further information on administration please contact Vivian.
*IMPORTANT: please be aware there is no formal accreditation procedure or authorising body in the UK for this work. At the end of each year you will receive an Attendance Certificate certifying the number of full days attended. This may count towards already qualified psychotherapists' formal CPD requirements, and will be recognised within the informal international community of this work. It is the responsibility of participants to comply with the legal requirements of their own country in terms of the application and practice of this approach.
A collaborative learning environment means that we are all learning and contributing. The richness of Franz's approach is that he models an ongoing openness to increased understanding, experimentation and learning. Every person's exploration using the Intention Method is an experiment for the person, and always has the potential to teach us all more about our own personal situation, and about our professional involvement.
