Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy (4 Years Part-Time)

Commencing Autumn 2017

A career as a biodynamic psychotherapist offers the opportunity to have a varied and rewarding work life, and to meet people from all walks of life. Many people who train apply the biodynamic principles within other professions and organisations, as biodynamic educators and biodynamic life skills coaches, as well as becoming biodynamic practitioners and biodynamic psychotherapists working one to one. Personal, professional and self-development is an important aspect of the course, and some people attend for these benefits alone.

Whatever the motivation for training, the Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy Course, (which now includes the Biodynamic Skills for Health Professionals Course as a 'stand-alone' Foundation Course and the Diploma in Biodynamic Massage Course) ) consists of a well-considered balance of theory, practice, experiential and group work, clinical work, and written assignments in each Module, all of which weave through each training meeting and in the residential seminars.

The Diploma Course is open to anyone who is interested in mental and physical health and well being, in a caring profession, and in undertaking their own journey of self-discovery.

IOBM courses are designed for those who have to combine study with full or part-time employment or overseas and international students who may have to travel significant distances to the place of study.

Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy

Theory

Students are introduced to the field of biodynamic psychology and psychotherapy as developed by Gerda Boyesen, its place in the historical development of psychoanalytical and psychological theories, including those of Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Reich, Carl Jung, and western psychology and medicine, eastern philosophy and medicine and recent developments in the field of neuro- science and new (energy) medicine.

Practice

IOBM teaches, and there are many opportunities to practice - biodynamic psychotherapy, biodynamic massage and all the methods and related treatments developed by Gerda Boyesen. In the first Module students are introduced to the core methods of biodynamic psychology, use of the stethoscope, and to the full range of biodynamic massage methods. Students also begin to gain practical experience through peer exchanges during the training meetings.

After the first Module Students are invited to become Apprentice Biodynamic Psychotherapists and undertake to give voluntary service during training and enter the IoBM Community Services Programme where they have induction training to become knowledgeable about the particular conditions that any individual or client group they will be working with has suffered, and Apprentices learn how to give short and safe treatments to a specific client group under Supervision.

As their experience grows, Apprentices go on to give 50 minute treatments under supervision in The Biodynamic Clinic. When they have satisfactorily completed a specified number of practice hours, Apprentices are examined and assessed and progress, still as an Apprentice, to see clients independently and meet in individual and group supervision for case discussions.

There is a fair and steady progress through different levels of competence and GBII evaluates this in a continuum. Once professional standards are reached, after evaluation and assessment by the IoBM Professional Standards Committee - Apprentices can apply for progressive IoBM Practising Certificates in accordance with their level of competence, and in the following categories: Biodynamic Skills Therapist, Biodynamic Massage Therapist, Biodynamic Counsellor, Biodynamic Psychotherapist, as well as in the specialisations of Biodynamic Vegetotherapist

(Advanced Bodywork Skills) and Biodynamic Deep-Draining Therapist (Advanced and Specialised Intervention). All Categoies of Practitioners are entered upon the IOBM Register of Licensed Biodynamic Practitioners.

The application of biodynamic psychology and its related theory and practice techniques is gradually introduced from the beginning of the course and is developed from the second Module through the specialised and advanced training modules of Deep Draining and Vegetotherapy - undertaken in a written contracts with peers.

Following the completion of the Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy Course, there is a Post Graduate Clinical Practice and Supervision Module ('Green House') after which successful graduates are awarded the Practising Certificate as a Biodynamic Psychotherapist, and may apply for an IOBM Practice Licence in that category.

The Diploma in Biodynamic Psychology is a post graduate academic award on satisfactory completion of a 10,000 word dissertation in an aspect of the biodynamic field in which Students have developed an interest. 

Experiential and Group Work

From commencement, Students enter a psychotherapy contract with an IOBM Licensed Biodynamic Psychotherapist for the duration of their training. This is a vital and enriching endeavour, and an essential aspect of the development of experience and understanding of a personal biodynamic and psychotherapeutic process.

The course also includes experiential work in pairs, triangles and groups throughout the training and especially during the residential seminars in each year.

IOBM operates a continuous assessment policy for active participation in and contribution to the group, attendance, completion of all course requirements, clinical practice, supervision and written assignments as well as for end of module evaluation and review in each Module.

Following qualification, IOBM provides generous support and Professional Membership Services to help Members develop and maintain a flourishing practice.

IOBM also offers post graduate advanced training courses in Deep-Draining and Vegetotherapy for those practitioners who wish to specialise in these areas.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Admissions Policy

Academic

The Certificate and Diploma Course in Biodynamic Psychotherapy requires a post-graduate level of competence. We look for a good standard of education and /or qualification and the commitment to apply oneself at a post-graduate level. We acknowledge experience gained from all areas of life, especially experience that is regarded as being important to the applicant, for whatever reason. We recognise that personal life experiences, when integrated, can become important qualities for the practice of biodynamic psychotherapy.

Personal

We expect the Applicant to have a keen interest in his or her own psychotherapy process as a whole commitment in itself, beyond the course requirements for training. We anticipate and value the unique contribution that the active participation of each prospective student can make to their group, their training and to psychotherapy and related fields. This contribution starts with training and can eventually lead to developments within the specific biodynamic field, and to benefits within the wider profession as a whole.

Introductory Weekend 

As set out in the Application Procedure, prospective students are required to attend an Introductory Weekend. At the Introductory Weekend an overview of the field of Biodynamic Psychology is presented and information relating to the course and its content are given.

These sessions do not form part of the Diploma Course Individal sessions requirement and must be completed before commencement of training.

Satisfactory Completion of the Diploma in Biodynamic Psychotherapy Course, and entry to the subsequent profession of biodynamic psychotherapy involves substantial personal undertakings and qualities. Each applicant for training must have personal qualities and both personal and financial resources that make him or her suitable for the profession of biodynamic psychotherapy.

Newly qualified Biodynamic Psychotherapists. A great achievement! Well done to ALL!

"There is growing evidence that scientific studies are beginning to validate some of the Gerda Boyesen concepts ... The emerging generation of physicians and surgeons are questioning old dogmas .... 

The purity and simplicity of (Gerda Boyesen's) work has been maintained in the training of students of the (Gerda Boyesen) Institute of Biodynamic Psychology and Psychotherapy in London and Killala in the West of Ireland."

"Deciding to follow my interest in the biodynamic field was the best decision I ever made. With the goal of becoming a biodynamic psychotherapist, I was accepted into the training which not only taught me how to become a practitioner, but also how to deal with and clear the things that I had taken on in the past but were not mine.

I had total support from the trainers who were there for me and with me all the way. They showed me a new world of emotion, understanding, direct communication, depth, resolution and how to be myself. These qualities are now constant companions with me in my working and inner life. I have the utmost gratitude to GBII for offering these life changing methods, for my own self-growth, and also for the tools I now use to help others."

"I began the course at a cross-roads in my life and was not sure I was doing the 'right' thing, nor whether I would manage to stay the 4 years. However, from the first weekend in my new 'group', I was totally taken by the personal attention I received, and the experiential aspect, which is fundamental to the biodynamic training. At each weekend meeting I became more and more immersed in this work, as I was discovering more and more about the most important person in my life - me!

This/I was an epic tale with which I wanted to be totally involved, at the same time I was re-discovering the depths of my being, learning to feel my feelings, not just acknowledge them mentally, and my relationship to myself and others became an authentic reality, not just a vague notion of role-playing.

The tutoring is first class. I was supported and encouraged throughout my training by my peers and the training staff, personally and emotionally. I can still feel the excitement of each weekend meeting and especially the seminars where we gathered as a group for 5 days. These times, although not always an easy place to be emotionally, dealing with real issues and people, were always filled with friendship, support and skilled tutors, creating a safe place in which to work. Knowing I was always in 'good hands' was a constant comfort, and allowed the risk-taking necessary to become clear of the past."

Biodynamic psychotherapy at a health fair

Enjoying a summer evening

I first became aware of biodynamic psychotherapy at a health fair. I went to a talk and the minute I heard a short explanation of the work I thought it made perfect sense to treat the body and the mind as a whole unit – not one or the other. I felt a sensation in my gut and at that moment I knew that this was what I had been waiting to hear for many years. I was later to realise how important it is to listen to the gut and what it is saying. One week later I had a biodynamic treatment and after it I felt very whole and that I could conquer the world – it was a wonderful feeling – I felt huge joy and excitement and I literally skipped home

"I did my 4-year training in biodynamic psychotherapy and massage with a wonderful team of trainers and assistants and I will always remember their love, dedication and care for me. The training held some of the most wonderful experiences I have encountered in my life and it has changed me and my path in life forever. I think the work is profound, it is applicable to so many aspects of life and it is good and precious work.

It helped me to restore my confidence in myself and gave me the strength to live the life I wanted to live."

Time to reflect in Nature - at the 4 Winds in Killala, Co Mayo

"My life has been transformed as a result of my training with GBII. I am still me but more me, so many parts of myself once hidden have opened up to me, to enhance my life and to give me so much more joy and peace. I see the world differently; I see it through a much more expansive lens. I feel whole, all that is me is me without judgement and I realise that I like me a lot!

My training enabled me to know my vulnerability and strength and to embrace both for my life. That I have needs, was a revelation to me, that I can have my needs met was a liberation. I CAN have all my needs met before I die, the very idea blew my mind and enabled a liberation in my cells, the sheer joy of living and dying in peace, no longer tormented or driven by unfulfilled needs, the world needs to know this, to know this simple healing principle."

Learning a new way to listen to each other

Learning a new way to listen to each other

"My training helped me to feel my emotions, allow them, articulate them, and clarify my position in staying with them. I began to feel connected to the world in a new and energetic way. It helped me to get beyond my neurotic self. It facilitated my experience of energetic pulsation and rhythm.

The structure of training, in holding me, provided me with a safe way to come through to love myself and to radiate that into the world. I learned to look for and see the beauty and nature and humanity of people beyond "the matter". It helped me to clear away the residues of trauma, shock and grief, and the trainers were examples to me of how I could live."

The Experiential Training Group is always a supportive environment

"I joined the training at a crossroads in my life and having faced my "long dark night of the Soul". I immediately felt it was the right place for me and that I was following my destiny. I went through many things in my training and came to my peace, my joy and my belief in my ability to do - "I can do it". I overcame my fear of expressing myself through time after time of daring to do it and being received in a biodynamic,non judgemental and loving way.

The support of my "group" and the unlimited patience, love, skill, courage and integrity of my trainers to challenge me, support me, hear me and face me has enabled me to move forward in my life with confidence and ease. I feel, having finished my training, that I am very well qualified in my field and that I can have confidence in the methods, that I know work and also in my self as a human being in my flow."

"Undertaking the Diploma Course in Biodynamic Psychotherapy has been a life-changing experience for me.

Having graduated and worked as Engineer in the Aerospace industry for 10 years, the Diploma Course in Biodynamic Psychotherapy was the perfect way to explore and learn different aspects of my self, relationships and life.

The course has just the correct balance of psychological work and body work providing the right mix of intellectual and emotional stimulation with hands-on work. Through the course I have had the privilege of meeting the most fantastic, interesting and genuine people from different walks of life that I would not usually meet in my day-to day job. The Gerda Boyesen International Institute is the Institute in the field of the work and it was a privilege to have been trained by the Founder of Biodynamic Psychology and see how Gerda Boyesen's core values have been incorporated into the training."

"I completed my training in June 1996 as a biodynamic psychotherapist. What interested me most (and still does) about the biodynamic work is the integration of anatomy and physiology with the psychology of health and wellbeing. This work has the 'x' factor missing in other therapies I had explored.

My working life has mainly been in the corporate world, and I live every day with the principles, concepts and theories of the Biodynamic teachings, in particular the art of self-regulation and autonomy. These integral learnings are for me tantamount when dealing with clients, suppliers, peers and management at all levels, especially when the going gets tough. There is always a way through."
