4-year program to become a therapist
Netherlands Institute of Core Energetics (NICE) offers a four-year training to educate in the specific techniques, theory and practice of Core Energetics. At the end of the training, the students are certified Core Energetics therapists.
The theme for the first year is understanding the personality and the developmental history of a person. The mind, spirit, energy, emotions, personality and defenses are studied based on their interaction with the physiological body. The year is the foundation upon which the knowledge of Core Energetics (CE) is built. In addition, students will learn about themselves, how they block their own creativity, movement, and life force.
The second year of training focuses on the techniques and methods of CE. Students learn theories of energy and specific teachings and techniques for energetic work. The curriculum covers grounding, breathing, and sensing, as well as more specific body work with the upper and lower segments and the physical aspects of the character structures.
The third year of the training represents the year of integration. In addition, the four stages of the therapy, countertransference and transference, diagnosis, treatment planning and assessment are emphasized. Students integrate and put into practice what they have learned in prior years and develop clinical proficiency. By the end of the year students have experienced each phase of the work and have gained the necessary skills to help others on the passage from mask self through lower self to core self.
Introduction to the conceptual structure of CE therapeutic process: penetrating the mask, freeing the lower self to reach the core, discovering the universal life plan. Training in developing a link between the higher self of the therapist and the higher self of the client; in negotiating during a first intake session with a client; in planning the entire trajectory of a client; and in creating an overview of therapeutic goals for the transformation of character, where the therapist is conscious of the specific needs of the individual client.
Also the 4th year focuses on trainees developing their individuality as core therapists. Throughout the year they are given opportunities to practice and to learn what qualities they bring to the work. They are encouraged to go deeper into the work and to consolidate the four years of training. Specialized areas emphasized in the fourth year include leadership, individuality, relationships and sexuality. Demonstration and practice sessions are provided so that students may polish their therapeutic skills.
