The NeuroAffective Touch® Training welcomes a variety of professional participants including psychotherapists, psychologists, social workers, and pre-licensed interns and students in these fields, as well as certified bodywork, massage, and somatic practitioners, addiction counselors, nurses, health practitioners, and coaches who wish to integrate body and mind in the resolution of emotional trauma and relational deficits.
Upon registering, please use the application form to describe your professional background. All applications will be reviewed as it is our goal to provide a safe and proficient learning environment for all students.
Professional Liability Insurance
Due to the nature of the NeuroAffective Touch® Training and for your own protection, students are required to carry professional liability insurance that specifically details the inclusion of massage, bodywork, or somatic work. If you do not have such insurance, or your professional liability insurance does not include massage, bodywork, or somatic work, please amend your policy or purchase insurance at ABMP, here or here. If you are not in a position to obtain professional liability insurance, please contact our office.
CE credits are available for the majority of trainings and workshops. Visit the CE Credits page for availability. CE credit is awarded for completion of live training modules or workshops. Participants must have paid a tuition fee, signed in, attended the entire seminar, completed an evaluation, and signed out in order to receive a CE certificate. Failure to sign in or out will result in forfeiture of credit for the entire course. No exceptions will be made. Partial credit is not available.
Due to the hands-on approach, it is important not to miss any of the live training modules. Sometimes life gets in the way, so if you need to miss all or part of a training module you can take it by video. A complete module taken via video is purchased for the same fee as a live module. The Certificate of Completion is awarded to those who have completed the modules live with no more than one module via video.
At this time no CE credits are available for modules by video.
Certificate of Completion
A Certificate of Completion is awarded for completion of the Foundation Training. Students must have completed all training modules, either live or by video.
Certification is not yet available. Current training, attendance in study groups, consultations, and personal sessions will be applicable toward certification when it becomes available.
To track progress towards certification students can download a session/training log to keep track of trainings, study groups, consultations, and sessions.
