Methods and foundations for Phase 2:
The connection between the heart and pelvis opens on a very deep level the flow between the heart and the genitals. It is important that we open our body consciousness gradually to ensure that our energy can be expressed and flow - fully and well prepared.
The sessions and their sequence can be well understood on the basis of knowledge and the "breath wave" (see charts: www.posturalintegration.net, blocked and integrated energy wave).
Structure an individual session: The individual steps in their sequence
a) Question of the client to the PHI Coach
b) Body Reading
All these steps can not always be carried out in one session. However, it is important to understand this, to at least be able to find out what has priority in a session.
Establishing a session: Similar to how the structure of a single session, the establishment of a session is divided into different phases:
Each phase requires a number of sessions before you can proceed to the next phase. In mutual exchange of participants and working with models, it is very important to understand these stages, in order to know at what stage the Pelvic-Heart practitioner is working with the client. Is it not possible to work through all phases with a client, at least one counseling or advice about the process should be made.
The group work within the training includes demonstrations, question and answer sessions, role playing, Bodymind drama performances and the exchange of pelvic-heart sessions. The trainees are asked those experiences and learning content in the form of a personal log to hold in order to present at the end of the training this dossier for the Certificate. Active participation in group process is necessary, needs a PHI practitioners in training should be made clear. The exchange in the group provides important opportunities to receive individual sessions to be able to get feedback from the other students and give.
The presence on all dates is required. It is the responsibility of the participant in the absence of an appointment to consult with the trainer.
Peer groups are formed during the first training block. These peer groups meet between the respective 5 day - training blocks, or, if not possible, the peer group work can be carried out during a training block.
The Trainer or Trainer-Assistant between the training blocks in Phase 1 and Phase 2 maintain two practice days, of each 3 hours. Exchanged sessions between students can be supervised in this context. In addition, the opportunity is offered to deepen the structure and sequence of individual sessions. Participants are asked to write a two-page report on this exercise day and add this to the final dossier.
The day before the exercise day, and the day itself, only light meals should be taken.
During the training, each student is required to obtain at least 10 sessions of recognized PHI practitioners. (5 sessions in each of the two phases). These sessions deal with all sexual topics that are important for the students, as well as with all the hopes and difficulties that are associated with the role of the learner PHI students. Similarly, subjects that are dealing with other students, training-clients, trainers or assistants could be important.
The notes after each session shall be added to the final dossier.
If the trainer is in agreement the students already in Phase 1 can exchange sessions with each other in practice groups.
Working with training-clients outside the group is reserved to Phase 2 and 3. Phase 3 includes two individual sessions, which are supervised by the trainer or assistant.
Pelvic-Heart Integration is offered to students as a professional method. As a professional way in which one tries to assist the client in discovering his sexual harmony and satisfaction. The techniques can also be used in other methods such as counseling, massage and psychotherapy as an extended instrument.
Graduate students need to be aware that the certification by the International Council of PsychoCorporal (Bodymind) Integration Trainers (ICPIT) not automatically raises a legal status in their country. Pelvic-Heart Integration as a method can be used within their own qualifications for those who have an authorization as Psychotherapist, Psychomotor therapist, Counselor, Social worker, physiotherapy… Those who want to work under the title Pelvic-Heart Integration, will not encounter too much difficulty in their country if they can demonstrate that Pelvic-Heart Integration is a type of coaching that lets the client make his own experiences. The PHI-coach is then a kind of demonstrating teacher and the client, a self-learner. There is, in this training no attempt to use psychotherapeutic methods, massage or other methods in which the client is manipulated or directed towards a specific external target. The "self-learning factor" in this work should be emphasized again and again at regular intervals. In this tradition, there is the assumption that the client and the therapist are both changed during the process.
In Phase 3, students work not only in addition with 2 training-clients - the reports about it are recorded in the dossier - you also have to take 2 personal supervision sessions with a pelvic-heart practitioner in which your work with the training-clients is supervised.
Photos and comments concerning these 2 sessions accompany the final dossier. The first supervised session should treat the sexual blockages, the second, integration. The cost of these sessions are borne by the student or the training-client. You have the following structure:
The talk includes:
- Further discussion on supervision
The students exchange the results of supervision in the supervision group and in the practice group. They evaluate how their work has changed due to the Supervision.
After all the requirements of Phases 1-3 are finished, the students pay Euro 100 .- for their certificate, passed by ICPIT and € 200 to the trainer or assistant-trainer who receives the final report and evaluates and discusses it.
The report should include the following:
If the trainer feels one of these points to be insufficient, he may ask for further work (but no extra charge). If all requirements are met, the student will be awarded the certificate „Pelvic-Heart Integration Coach" by the International Council of PsychoCorporal (Bodymind) Integration Trainers.
Students who have already participated in a Pelvic-Heart introduction group or an advanced training may apply for eligibility with the trainer. Depending on the type of experience there may be a reduction in the working with training-clients or the individual sessions.
