TRE® Provider Training – General Information 

TRE has made a huge difference in my life. I am doing what I do because I love the work.
The course is open to everyone who has done at least one session of  TRE with a certified Provider, either one on one or in a group.

This is an experiential training which takes the participant on a self-development journey. It is highly recommended for everyone who works in a therapeutic context. Safety and connection, emotional self-regulation skills and understanding of self protective and defensive responses in both, oneself and the other are of great importance in every helping profession. Including the physical body in therapy and understanding has nothing but advantages. As you change, so does your approach to others and your understanding of what it means to ‘help’.

 Your TRE Practice during the course :

  • Personal Journal on your own process
  • Min 5 individual sessions with 5 different people
  • One individual needs to be taken through 6 consecutive sessions
  • Min 5 sessions with different groups
  • One group needs to be taken through 6 consecutive sessions
  • Client Facilitation and Group facilitation journals sent and feedback received

Peer sessions and sessions with other certified Providers do not count toward these practice requirements.

It does happen, that there are changes in your life during the 8 month that make it difficult to attend all the workshops or do the practice in time. Do not worry about this. I will always make a plan so that you can certify at a later date or make up for  workshops you could not attend. (Mod 1 in March and Mod2 in July are compulsory)
