About The Event


The training is aimed at intensive training, practical skills training, personal growth and supervision of therapy of participants. The internships are also an attempt to offer much more value for money. Participants receive about a month’s training at the cost of around 4 days of short workshops. The term internship is a misnomer though, as in almost all internships participants receive a stipend, but this training is best called extending training at the training centre as students pay for the training.
