Japan – 2022

Training Overview

New to our training or want to learn more about them? Then join us during one of our free webinars or watch previous sessions by clicking here.

This training is taught in English and translated into Japanese sequentially.

For each module, you will watch 6 hours of pre-recorded lecture with Japanese subtitles, and Kathy and Steve will offer 2 days of Q&A in each morning and triad exercise in each afternoon. Q&A will be sequentially translated between English and Japanese.


SEtraining is ideal but not required. The course is open to therapists in general.  This course is not open for those who are in a client situation.

The following is a list of topics that will be addressed in each module. We use an experiential and emergent design model for teaching, which means that topics evolve from the group exercises and discussion.
