The Specialist Certificate in Psychodynamics & Consciousness Studies is a home study course designed for anyone interested in energy therapy and its unique approach to healing. Beginners welcome.
Psychodynamic & Consciousness studies cover a wide spectrum of the healing dynamics of the mind and consciousness, with a strong focus on Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). This convenient home study course will provide you with a strong understanding of psychodynamic energy and its relationship with chakra systems of the body and meridians. It will also provide the foundations of EFT theory and application for a myriad of health and wellness issues, including stress, pain management, and addiction.
Also included in this course is an exploration of psychodynamic and psychosomatic forces that were once known as “magnetism” from a modern, holistic perspective. Here the whole idea of magnetism becomes more comprehensible as an energetic concept roughly equivalent to the idea of qi or prana in Eastern holistic traditions (e.g. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Ayurveda, Yoga, Tantra, etc.) It then further examines the concept of psychodynamic energy, as well as the causes of depleted psychodynamic energy in the context of mental illness. It considers mental disorders from a practitioner perspective, discussing their classification in the clinical setting.
This course concludes by examining contemporary scientific, philosophical and psychological understandings of consciousness, before turning to the fields of sleep, dreaming, meditation and parapsychology in order to understand the deeper spectrum of consciousness. Please note: this part of the course forms part of the diploma in clinical hypnotherapy. If you are studying this diploma qualification, please inform staff so that recognition of prior learning is applied.
