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 the focus is on healing early trauma, including birth trauma. Three new protocols will be introduced: the LI Birth protocol, The LI Attunement protocol, and the Preverbal Attachment Repair protocol. Participants will learn how to use Stephan Porges’ Polyvagal theory and the client’s attachment style to assess the client’s self structure. Clinical case examples will be discussed to enhance participants’ understanding of how to determine the best treatment plan for each individual client. 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 LI therapy, may want to consider experiencing their own Lifespan Integration therapy before attending the LI trainings.
