THE BIODYNAMIC CLINIC DURING TRAINING
During their training with GBII, students who undertake the Practitioners Course module enter into an Agreement to provide Voluntary Service during Training.
This outlines GBII and The Biodynamic Clinic terms and conditions as they relate to the apprentice biodynamic practitioner’s introduction to and establishment of clinical practice, professional conduct, supervision, boundaries management, writing case notes and keeping client files etc during their training and apprenticeship.
Apprentice biodynamic practitioners work under supervision of a GBII Licensed Biodynamic Supervisor. Through this model The Biodynamic Clinic offers low-cost biodynamic services in a variety of external treatment venues as well as in-house.
After practitioners have gained sufficient experience in this supervised model, have reached the required level of competency and have been seen and assessed to fulfil professional standards of practice, they can move on to the next level, still as an Apprentice.
This involves an application to register a place of practice, which can be in their own home if a clear space is provided, or in an established centre, in either case, approved by the Professional Standards Committee. Apprentices can begin to practice independently, and meet with their GBII Supervisor for regular supervision in small groups or in individual supervision, as needed.
After the period of Apprenticeship is over, Apprentices present their case-work and observations to a panel of the Professional Standards Committee for Assessment. Successful Candidates are issued with the GBII Practising Certificate as a Biodynamic Massage Therapist and can apply for the GBII Practice Licence in order to begin their independent practice as a qualified biodynamic practitioner at that level.
The next stage of competency involves clinical practice in the field of biodynamic psychotherapy known as the "Green-House"
A similar structure is applied to this more advanced stage of clinical practice, culminating in case-work presentation for Assessment by the Professional Standards Committee.
Successful candidates are issued with the GBII Practising Certificate as a Biodynamic Psychotherapist and can apply for the GBII Practice Licence in that category.
