This training involves attending a year-long programme of training and experiential workshops, reading, writing, peer practice group, social activities and supervision. The  Intermediate / Advanced Course is open to those who wish to develop their professional abilities without necessarily becoming certificated practitioners.

  • Intermediate Training: strengthens trainees’ directing, auxiliary and group work. At this point, trainees write a short paper in an area of interest applicable to their work.
  • Advanced Training: trainees are required to choose a primary trainer, to belong to AANZPA, to run groups in the community and have supervision for their work.
