Guided Imagery Training Programs and Classes
NEW! Transformational Imagery at California Institute of Integral Studies
This three unit class begins September 9, 2013, and is offered through the Masterâ€™s Program in Integrative Health Studies. You do not need to be currently enrolled at CIIS, and could take the course under â€śspecial studentâ€ť status. It is a three hour class that meets weekly for three and a half months.
Through a compelling and extensive body of research connected to the field of psychoneuroimmunology, we have learned that conscious and unconscious images within us have a direct impact on our physiology, offering guided imagery an important role for a range of health-related conditions. Examples include the ability to lower cholesterol and glucose levels in the blood, heighten short-term immune cell activity, lower blood pressure, reduce complications related to surgery, as well as anxiety relief and enhance well-being. An interactive-style of imagery facilitation which navigates the mind-body-emotions-spirit matrix will be taught and practiced, along with an understanding of its applications for a variety of health and lifestyle concerns.
Certificate in Deep Imagination through John K Kennedy University
All Continuing Education Certificate courses may be taken as either certificate courses or as stand-alone Continuing Education courses. Prerequisites must be observed. Credit for MFT, LCSW, Psychologists and RNâ€™s.
Over the past 30 years, research has demonstrated the effectiveness of guided imagery with mood, happiness, trauma, performance, health, and creativity. The power of imagery lies in its capacity to access unconscious and pre-conscious processes when approaching therapeutic goals. By learning how to tap into a clientâ€™s key symbols and metaphors, the capacity for change accelerates, positively influencing the emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and behavioral outcomes.
This certificate program will allow you to build competence with an interactive-style of imagery that is non-scripted. It can be applied toward individuals, couples, groups and with children, to address a range of topics including complex grief, depression, pain, insomnia and other symptoms, end of life issues, and PTSD.
Certificate requirements: A total of 45 hours is required. This includes four core courses and at least seven electives. New electives will be available in each catalog and different core courses are offered throughout the year.
NEW! Certificate in Mind-Body Medicine at Five Branches University
There are a variety of modalities that are included in this curriculum. I will be teaching the guided imagery classes. Classes can be taken independently of the certification program.
Continuing Education Units from Book
Also five CEU units are available to California MFTâ€™s and LCSWâ€™s for reading Healing and Transformation Through Self Guided Imagery, registering below, and successfully completing the post-test and evaluation. Because the Board of Behavioral Sciences has recently expanded the methods for receiving continuing education credit, this interactive, electronic format is a BBS approved way to personally tailor your professional learning.
As a BBS Continuing Education Provider (PCE 4431), I am able to offer this book as course work to incorporate self guided imagery as a discipline to enhance the understanding and practice of counseling or social work.
