The Level 1 LI training introduces participants to the Lifespan Integration Timeline and to four basic LI protocols:
- The LI Baseline protocol,
- The LI PTSD protocol,
- The LI Relationship protocol, and
- A simple trauma clearing protocol called “Timeline from Explicit Memory”
At the Level 1 LI training, participating therapists will learn how to stay attuned to their clients while leading them through repetitions of their Timelines. They will learn to vary the number of cues read and the speed at which they are read depending on the needs of each individual client. Therapists will learn how to introduce specific brief interventions between repetitions of the Timeline in order to move dysregulated clients back toward their WOT’s (windows of tolerance). Therapists will learn how their ability to remain attuned during Timeline repetitions is essential to the clearing and integration of bodily memory of past trauma. They will learn how the therapist’s attunement to the client, combined with repetitions of the LI Timeline, helps to build a more solid self-structure in clients, including in those clients who are fragmented and unstable.
In Level 1 LI, therapists will learn the basics of client assessment, and will be able to make LI treatment plans for individual clients based on the client’s goals and the clinician’s assessment. We encourage therapists to follow up with the Level 2 LI training where they will learn several more important LI protocols, and more about treatment planning.
Each LI training involves three practice sessions. To receive credit for the training every participant is required to complete all three practices. During the three supervised Level 1 practicums, participants will practice using and experiencing the Lifespan Integration Baseline protocol.
After completing the Level 1 training, therapists will be able to effectively use the four LI protocols taught in Level 1 in their practices with their clients.
Whenever possible, we recommend taking Level 2 LI soon after Level 1. The combination of Level 1 plus Level 2 LI will give therapists an understanding of the core concepts of Lifespan Integration and will provide them with all the most commonly used LI protocols. The manuals provided at each level of LI training include detailed instructions for creating individualized LI treatment plans.
