SUMMARY OF CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS
Attend four x 2 Day Workshops: Trainee must attend four TRE training workshops: Module 1, Module 2, Module 3 and Module 4. TRE for All, Inc requires regular TRE practice, supervision and practice of teaching before attending Module 2. After Module 1 you will be required to form a relationship with a TRE mentor and make a plan for your certification.
4 Personal One to One TRE Sessions: Learning about your own response to doing TRE in one to one sessions. The trainee needs to participate in a minimum of 4 personal sessions with a supervisor. Extra sessions maybe recommended by your TRE mentor.
4 Supervision Sessions on Teaching Individuals: Learning how to teach TRE to individuals. Before the final certification you will need to teach and record (usually video) working with at least 6 different clients. You will teach 4 new individual clients in single sessions. You will teach 2 individual clients over three sessions as case histories. Extra sessions maybe recommended by your TRE Mentor.
4 Supervision Sessions on Teaching Groups: Learning how to teach TRE to small groups. After Module 2 you will be supervised through the process of teaching TRE to small groups of between 3 to 8 people. You need to teach and record a minimum of 4 groups and get supervision on each group. Extra sessions maybe recommended by your TRE Mentor.
40 Hours of Journaling TRE Practice: Trainee needs to be doing their personal TRE with journaling. On completing the journal there may be requests for further journaling from your supervisor due to individual needs. You will develop a learning plan with your TRE Mentor.
Read and Watch: The trainee needs to read the required literature and watch DVDs. You will be asked to write short reflections of your understanding of TRE.
Final Certification Session: The trainee must complete a final certification session. This is with your Primary Certification Trainer.
The certification process will take 12-18 months from the start of Module 1.
The learning process is self directed and needs significant organisation and motivation on the part of the TRE Trainee. Your relationship with your TRE Mentor is key. We will endeavor to support your process as best suitable to your needs.
Please note, the requirements above are the minimum. Prior to Module 2 we will ask you to agree a learning plan with your TRE Mentor. The personal process work is significant and needs to be fully engaged with before moving to teaching to other individuals.
For people without an existing qualification as a therapist or trainer, the supervision requirement will almost certainly be greater to make sure you have the skills to support people to safely learn and practice TRE.
Supervision is an ongoing negotiation depending on your existing skills, your study progress and time taken to complete each stage. It is not unusual for more supervision sessions that outlined above to be required as part of your learning plan.
The completion of the above minimum requirements does not guarantee you will be certified as a Certified TRE Provider.
Please note, TRE events attended prior to Module 1 do not contribute to the certification process.
