EcoSensory Therapy Online Practitioner Training: Growing Roots (February 2022)
Join our ‘Growing Roots’ Online Practitioner Training in 2022!
We will release the first week’s training on the 28th of February 2022 as the early signs of spring emerge.
The course is 12 weeks long and each week we will look in-depth at a model element. We will cover the theoretical underpinnings, the evidence base, and how to assess and use the element in practice.
The training will be a mixture of slides, videos, and activities, including a podcast to take out in nature. You can go at your own pace, and you will have a year to complete the training. However, as part of a cohort, we strongly recommend trying to keep to the release weeks.
There will be three check-ins with the tutors, one at the beginning, middle, and end of the course.
Our ‘Growing Roots’ Online Practitioner Training is designed to give you the necessary knowledge and skills to safely move your clinical practice into nature. The course is 12 weeks long and has more than 25 hours of learning material. Our September ‘Growing Roots’ training will start the week beginning 28th of February 2022.
Each week you gain access to a new module of our training. We start with an in-depth look at the theory behind using nature for therapy. We then guide you through our EcoSensory Model of Practice illustrating each Model Element by sharing its theory and evidence-based, practical applications (assessment and session planning), and case studies with diverse client populations. We provide all the practical elements that you will need to put the model into practice and start sessions in nature (assessment and formulation worksheets; session planning worksheets; risk assessment proformas; fidelity measure etc).
All the learning materials are integrated into our website, so we’ve done the hard work for you. Once you sign up, everything you will need will be accessible through your login portal. This will be your central point for all the learning modules, as well as group conversations. Don't worry, we take time at the start of the training to teach you how it all works and how best to use our learning platform!
The training will be a mixture of videos, narrated slideshows, written manuals, worksheets, and experiential activities, including a podcast to take out in nature. You can go at your own pace, and you will have a year to complete the training. However, as part of a cohort, we strongly recommend trying to keep to the release weeks.
