Training in Bioenergetic Analysis
The Massachusetts Society for Bioenergetic Analysis Professional Training Program provides in-depth training in the theory and practice of Bioenergetic Analysis following the guidelines and curriculum of the International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis (IIBA). The training includes didactic and experiential teaching methods, relevant readings, discussions, and extensive group work. Trainees who complete the full training program are eligible to apply to become Certified Bioenergetic Therapists through the International Institute of Bioenergetic Analysis.
In addition to the theory and practice of Bioenergetic Analysis, the training focuses on personal growth.
By understanding how our history shaped our present, how our character structure evolved, and how we can decrease our fears and energetic blocks, we can move toward being the therapists we strive to be. Ultimately, as Bioenergetic therapists, our bodily experience and our personal development guide our work. Thus, we strongly emphasize individual Bioenergetic therapy for trainees, both in the group and with their personal therapist.
