ISITTA Training  
Who Is This Training For?

ISITTA training is designed for psychotherapists, psychologists, counselors, healers, social workers, coaches and medical professionals who want to include an in-depth somatic approach to trauma healing. It is designed for professionals who value experiential learning and recognize their own change process as essential to becoming a more effective healer.

This unique training requires a commitment to learning outside of your comfort zone and beyond your intellectual knowledge, as well as a willingness to delve into the mysteries of the body’s healing powers.

The Innate Somatic Intelligence™ Trauma Therapy Approach (ISITTA) is based on the belief that the inside-out transformation of the therapist is essential in supporting the client’s journey towards a whole and self-sustaining life. When we learn about/identify/learn to listen to/connect with and train our own somatic wisdom and knowledge, we can guide our clients safely and precisely into the vast resource and creativity that they hold in their bodies.  

Prerequisites: We strongly recommend an introduction to the ISITTA method through an online or in-person workshop prior to taking this training. Applicants need to have a background in Psychotherapy, Mental Health, Hakomi Therapy or affiliated Mental Health Field. 

ISITTA Training consists of six modules from September 2024 through March 2025 via Live Zoom Online.  Each monthly training module includes self-paced study via video talks, video demo sessions and reading. The teaching is experiential and includes time for small group practice, live demonstrations of the work and guided practices.
