Educational Programs

The Institute for Mind Body Therapy (IMBT) offers a series of educational programs (many for free), depending on whether you are just interested in learning more about mind and body approaches to therapy, whether you are a body-based practitioner (surrogate, massage or touch therapist, energy worker, meditation coach, etc.), or a licensed clinician or therapist.

The IMBT offers ongoing education opportunities in three forms: Community Support Series, which are grassroots-based, peer-to-peer support forums and learning interactions; Online Support Series, which are wholly web-based trainings, talks, and programs; and Experiential Learning Series, which are face-to-face structured learning programs that offer the benefit of in-person learning.

Participation in some programs can be applied to continuing education credit to receive IMBT certification, or to maintain certification status.
