Due to the nature of the work done in this course, afternoon lab session ending times cannot be pre-determined - most stay as late as 6:30-7:30 p.m. each day in order to have lab completion, and slightly earlier on the last day. We advise that you do not make evening commitments as session ending times vary. Please plan accordingly.

You may have heard that Dr. John compared imagery and dialoguing to "talking to yourself". Essentially, SomatoEmotional Release Technique: Mastering the Inner Physician (SERTIP) helps you better understand how to successfully incorporate this powerful method into your sessions. This course integrates CST with what Carl Jung called "active imagination" - a way to bridge the gap between the non-conscious and the conscious. Along with imagery and conversation, active imagination can include dream work and art. All of these things can go a long way in helping you to know yourself better and in so doing, know how to help your client better.

This class will focus on combining various Gestalt techniques from Fritz Perls, with Roberto Assagioli's Psychosynthesis ideas. You will learn how to actually become the objects that appear in your personal sessions, to recognize the foreground and background in a given scenario, to become more aware of being in the here and now. Most importantly, this experiential approach will help you identify and explore your various inner characters or “subpersonalities."
Discovering and integrating the various characters that live within us can be vital in helping us become more authentic, understanding human beings. As course developer Stan Gerome has said many times throughout the years. "The most valuable tool a therapist can bring to a session is a more integrated therapist”.
We hope you join us in this fascinating and revealing journey in allowing the psyche to speak.

"SERTIP was by far the best UI workshop I have ever attended! The knowledge and hands-on skills presented by Stan Gerome helped rid me of any hesitation to use imagery and dialogue with my clients. But far beyond that, the skills I learned helped me to finally 'hear' my own inner physician. Listening to our own inner physician helps us find a clear path to reach our highest human potential, and as CST therapists, this is the best gift we can give our clients. Stan Gerome does not put on any pretenses, he shows us the 'human' side of himself by sharing parts of his own healing journey. As a student in this class, that made me feel brave enough not to hold back while doing my own work on the table. As a result, the work I did on myself in this class was deeper and more profound than in any class I've ever taken! We are so fortunate to have such a gifted teacher!"
