About Integrative Guided Imagery

Using the power of the imagination as an adjunct in health care is becoming more and more common place. Guided imagery is being incorporated into stress management classes, surgery preparation, cardiac rehab and in the full spectrum of cancer care, just to name a few. It is a vital way patients can take an active role in their own well-being and healing.

Yet there are few formal guided imagery training sources. One that has been training and certifying healthcare professionals since 1996 is Beyond Ordinary Nursing‘s Certificate Program in Integrative Imagery.

Phase I begins October 9-11, in Redwood City,  California, very close to the San Francisco airport. Registration is due September 1st and a tuition reduction for the full program is $600 for this tract only.

  2. 20.4 contact hours for phase I for RNs, LCSWs and MFTs
  3. Phase I is 3 full days – Friday, Saturday and Sunday
  4. Phase 2-4 to follow in 2010 at Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA

This exciting, innovative 4-phase, 108 hour certificate program offers in-depth training and direct experience in Integrative Imagery, an evidence-based mind/body modality that teaches you how to harness and utilize the power and science of the imagination for health and healing.
