Before attending the Level 3 Lifespan Integration training
Before attending the Level 3 LI training, therapists are required to receive one session of the LI Baseline protocol from a certified LI therapist. (Therapists who received a session of Baseline from a certified LI therapist prior to Level 2 have already fulfilled this requirement.) A second supervision session from any approved LI consultant is also required prior to attending Level 3. It is fine to use the same consultant as before Level 2, or fine to try a new one.
Content of the Level 3 Lifespan Integration training
In the Level 3 LI training therapists will learn new variations of LI protocols to heal early trauma and to repair attachment wounds. Participants will learn how to use the LI Birth protocol for birth trauma, and how to use LI to heal early attachment wounds. Instructors will go over Stephan Porges’ Polyvagal theory, and talk about how it applies to client assessment and treatment planning. Clinical case examples will be discussed to enhance participants’ understanding of how to determine the best treatment plan for each individualt client. In Level 3 the LI Attunement protocol will be introduced and practiced.
Over this two day training there will be three supervised practice sessions. During these practicums participants will observe and practice giving and receiving the LI Attunement protocol from each of three roles: therapist, client, and observer. 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.
