This is the first in a series of articles written by Asha Clinton, MSW, PhD, and other members of the Advanced Integrative Therapy community. Their purpose is to talk about what’s possible in therapy today, and especially in AIT.
We want to begin a dialogue with you so that, together, we can envision and, therefore, create the therapy of the future, a therapy that will heal people most effectively.
If you are interested in what we write and have questions or comments, please send them to email@example.com, so the dialogue can begin.
If you are an AIT therapist and wish to contribute a blog, please send it via email to again firstname.lastname@example.org. If it fits our purpose—spreading the word about AIT, understanding AIT better both theoretically and practically, creating new AIT innovations, and learning how to use it more powerfully—we’ll happily put it on this website.
