Further details:
Modules 1-7 take place over 6 training module weekends. The first 2 weekends are close together, usually a fortnight apart. Modules 2-6a are usually about 6 weeks apart. Module 6a is a revision weekend and all students need to do at least one. Then, Module 7 is the practical assessment module of all the training done to that point. This is usually 2 weeks after 6a and is run by another licensed tutor, who will assess the students’ competency and qualify them. Throughout the course, home study (a minimum of 100 hours must be completed and logged, including 10 case studies of 3 sessions undertaken and written up). During the course, students should also expect written tests, which will ensure good understanding and uptake of the theory and protocol taught. There is a tutor lead support and dialogue available throughout. The study manuals are also available in many languages.

Please note: As part of the training students will be encouraged to practice the Bowen Technique movements on their fellow classmates. This means that you will have physical contact with other students in your class. Please be respectful to each other and make sure that you’re not violating each other’s boundaries.
