AIT BASICS Seminar
Basics is the introductory seminar for AIT practice. It introduces students to AIT theory and methodology and the basic AIT protocols for treating trauma, breaking traumatic patterns, lastingly replacing negative cognitions with positive, realistic ones, developing positive qualities, and treating trauma quickly. The Basics Seminar is a prerequisite for all other AIT seminars and provides successful, innovative, energetic methods for treating psychological, physical, and spiritual dysfunctions quickly, gently, lastingly and easily.
AIT Multicausal Illness Treatment
In the AIT Psychogenic Illness Treatment Seminar you will learn how to discover and treat the psychological causes of physical conditions. This seminar teaches us methodologies for dissipating the unusually profound resistances that many psychosomatically ill people have toward healing. It provides three landmark protocols for treating the psychological aspects of physical symptoms, and applies them to the treatment of infections and autoimmune conditions. The seminar includes many practice segments so that its participants can treat each other.
AIT Depths Treatment
The AIT Depths Treatment Seminar teaches us to enter the profound and usually unconscious territory composed of introjects, objects, personal archetypes and alters. These parts are capable of unfortunate activity until we become conscious of them and learn how to work with them. In this seminar we learn about these parts of the psyche, and how to energetically treat and transform negatively constellated parts into positive, dynamic aspects of our clients’ psyches.
AIT Cancer Prevention and Treatment
The newest, most cutting-edge of the AIT seminars, Psychogenic Cancer Work offers adjunctive cancer treatment beginning with the theory that trauma– physical, psychological, and spiritual– is the ultimate cause of cancer. By treating all the relevant forms of trauma and their connection to the development of cancer, AIT can produce improvements in longevity and, even, remission. This 4-day seminar includes the explanation, demonstration, and participant practice of the many protocols it offers. A must for every therapist who has even one client with cancer. 4 day seminar.
Mastering AIT Practice (MAP) Seminar MAP helps you better understand and use AIT theory and practice in order to increase your confidence, proficiency, and clarity while you treat your clients. It helps you move confidently from your first session with a client, to case analysis, to development of a successful treatment plan, to using that plan. We recommend that you take MAP directly after Basics since, together, they provide the foundation for the advanced AIT seminars. MAP is required for certification in AIT.
AIT Presence and Dissociation The protocols of the AIT Presence and Dissociation Seminar focus, theoretically and methodologically, on repairing the ways that dissociation, repression, and disapproval caused by early trauma, often in the family of origin, diminish and even destroy our clients’ ability to live in the present. These protocols help clients painlessly return to presence. The seminar includes AIT treatment for boundary issues, family issues, and emotional and physical dissociation.
AIT Attachment: Theory & Treatment Attachment theory presupposes that our relationship to others, to our world, and to ourselves is molded by our earliest primary relationships. Given its psychodynamic focus on the treatment of early childhood wounding, AIT has always implicitly specialized in attachment work. In this seminar we focus on the earliest events and patterns of relationship and how they become a template for later social behavior, belief systems, emotional response, relationship, dysfunction, and even neurobiology. Included are protocols for treating general attachment trauma, pre- and peri-natal trauma, early bonding and attachment trauma, pathological symbiosis, and a new treatment process: 5-Step Attachment Transformation.
AIT Anxiety Treatment: OCD & GAD This seminar focuses on the energetic, multi-modal treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder with specialized protocols to transform the neurobiological, psychodynamic, transpersonal, cognitive, and behavioral levels of both these disorders.
AIT PTSD Treatment The AIT PTSD Treatment Seminar focuses on treating the complexities of post-traumatic stress disorder. It provides a groundbreaking set of protocols that provide multi-dimensional treatment of PTSD, including psychodynamic, transpersonal, neurobiological, cognitive, and behavioral components. They provide deep healing of body, mind, and spirit.
AIT Character Structure Treatment for Personality Disorders & More Character structures are the foundations of the ego. When they are normal, they enhance a person’s ability to live his life successfully. When they are damaged, they produce a range of pathologies from stuckness and rigidity to fully developed personality disorders. The AIT Character Structure Treatment Seminar provides a methodology for the energetic treatment of those suffering from deep personality damage, as well as clients with one or more pathological character structures who are far less wounded. AIT’s approach is integrated with the most valuable aspects of previous approaches to personality treatment–object relations, ego psychology, archetypal, cognitive, and cognitive-behavioral methods. You will learn to dismantle pathological character structures, and to transform and regularize pathological thought and behavior through AIT’s groundbreaking behavioral and cognitive treatment.
AIT Peace Through Consciousness: The AIT Trigger Seminar This seminar provides methodology for identifying, exploring, and treating 10 different kinds of triggers, among them projection, projective identification, psychological typology, and expectation. Working with triggers in AIT can be a simple way to organize a short-term therapy, pinpoint hot issues, themes, archetypes, and patterns for treatment, or enter into deeper work. Most important, it can make your client conscious of his stuck, unconscious behavioral patterns and, then, energetically transform them.
AIT Treating Historical Trauma with AIT Millions of people suffer because of genocide, war, rape, epidemic, revolution, and cataclysm! AIT offers the Treating Historical Trauma Seminar to contribute to their healing. In it, we learn to treat post- traumatic reactions to such calamities, even when they arise from inherited trauma from our cultural history or our ancestors. This seminar presents the AIT approach to treating historical trauma that, regardless of its origins or how long ago it occurred, still impacts us intensely today.
AIT Introduction to AIT Dream Work In this seminar, AIT therapists who already work with dreams in their clinical work or would like to learn to do so, learn to integrate dream work with AIT trauma treatment. Dreams offer clinicians and clients access to unconscious material encoded in its own mysterious language of symbol and metaphor. This seminar introduces AIT practitioners to a method of dream analysis derived largely from the work of C. G. Jung and Fritz Perls, and adds a heretofore missing link: the movement from the analyzed dream to the discovery and treatment of the traumatic contents embedded within it.
AIT Treatment of Sensitivities According to recent studies the incidence of allergies and sensitivities is greater than any other type of illness effecting people in the US. Approximately 60% of the population has unknown food allergies and about 95% of these go undiagnosed. According to a medical journal in the UK, Thorax, there has been a 400% increase in hospitalizations due to food allergies in the UK since 1990. Since allergic symptoms have physical, psychological, and spiritual causes and effects, the AIT sensitivity protocols treat all these possibilities. The Sensitivities Seminar will enable participants to assess and treat four types of Sensitivities: trauma based allergies; physically based allergies; food intolerances; and toxins.
AIT Detoxification and Nutrition AIT Detoxification and Nutrition focuses on learning to discover toxins and nutritional deficiencies that cause psychological as well as physical problems. Detoxification and drainage strategies are demonstrated and practiced along with methods for improving a healthy diet with whole food nutritional supplements. This seminar also introduces innovative ways of viewing optimal health and treating physical illness. The protocols assist the AIT practitioner in assessing and repairing a wide variety of issues from autonomic nervous system dysfunction to cellular malfunction.
AIT Treating the Wounded Spirit This seminar provides a methodology as well as the opportunity to achieve the gentle removal of spiritual injuries and blocks and the accomplishment of Divine reconnection. It includes protocols on familial, social, religious, traumatic, and personal hindrances to Divine connection and spiritual/religious practice. It teaches us how to remove negative projections onto the Divine and, provides ecumenical meditations and other spiritual practices designed to further open and expand the spirit.
