During this year-long programme, trainees can expect to undertake reading and writing assignments with the intention of completing initial papers or their thesis. The training group, led primarily by Vivienne Thomson and Martin Putt, will focus on the integration of the method and developing the identity of the practitioner. This will require trainees to identify specific areas noted in the Training and Standards Manual they wish to hone and to display their practice, bringing forward their applications of the method for learning and discovery through experimentation. In addition to attending the training programme, trainees are expected to have regular supervision with a trainer and to address their own personal development or therapy.
