Description of the Level 1 Lifespan Integration training
The Level 1 Lifespan Integration training will introduce participants to the basics of Lifespan Integration therapy, and will provide them with the necessary skills and protocols to begin using LI with their clients. Therapists will learn to assess clients to determine how to optimally use the various LI protocols to clear past trauma, to improve self-regulation, and to bring about a more solid self-structure. After completion of this training, therapists will be equipped to use the LI Baseline and PTSD protocols with their clients.
During this training therapists will learn the LI Baseline protocol, the LI Relationship protocol, and how to use the LI PTSD protocol to clear body memory of trauma. Further LI training is recommended before attempting to use Lifespan Integration therapy with survivors of complex early trauma and neglect, such as clients diagnosed with DID or DDNOS. During the three supervised practicums, participants will practice using and experiencing the Lifespan Integration Baseline protocol. In order to receive credit, each participant must remain present during the entire training, and must fully participate in all three practices.
Statement about the Practicums during Lifespan Integration trainings:
Each LI training involves three practice sessions. Every participant is required to complete all three practices in order to receive credit for the training. Therapists who experienced childhood trauma and/or neglect may have undiagnosed dissociative disorders. Internal coherence (a “solid enough” self -system) is a necessary quality of every successful LI therapist. Dissociative therapists with histories of childhood trauma and/or neglect, who have not yet completed enough of their own personal Lifespan Integration therapy, can sometimes become dysregulated and/or highly activated while viewing and working with the early traumas of other participants. These individuals are not appropriate for our LI trainings until after they have experienced their own Lifespan Integration therapy.
