ABMI Practitioner Training

ABMI Practitioner Training Consists of:

  • Ten training segments, total of 100 days of training, 64 days In-person (IP) and 36 days Online (OL) plus live conference calls during the OL training times
  • Highly skilled and dedicated teaching staff
  • Six In-Person (IP) training segments (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10)
  • Four Online (OL) training segments (2, 4, 6, 8).
  • IP segment 1 is nine days long. All other IP segments are eleven days long—which include two additional days of training for in-person review of materials from the previous OL segment; and for segment 10, the 2-day review consists of review of select material.
  • The time between IP segments will be approximately 10 weeks.
  • Each OL segment is open for a period of seven to eight weeks for viewing.
  • For each online segment there will be weekly 1-hour conference calls with Anat and/or other training staff. The conference calls will be recorded for later listening/viewing.
  • Trainees need to participate in, and attend all 9 days of each IP segment (attendance is taken daily). Trainees need to complete all OL material (viewing attendance is tracked). In select cases, a trainee can take one IP segment OL, to be done during an extended time frame around the time the IP segment is scheduled. In totality, a student can miss up to 9 IP days; otherwise the trainee will need to attend the number of missed days during another IP segment the next training in order to become a certified practitioner.
  • Four Practicums under supervision, two for Transformational Movement Lessons (TML) and two for Functional Synthesis (FS) (one-on-one lessons)
  • Five Functional Synthesis Individual (FS) Lessons for trainees, one each in-person segment
  • Video library of current in-person segment
  • Availability of group leaders (ABM training staff) for questions and support in between segments
  • Dedicated and exceptional support staff
  • Practice of learned materials between segments
  • Total training duration is approximately 14 months
