To be considered a candidate for training, all new applicants are required to complete the Guild for Structural Integration Training Application Process and pay a non-refundable New Student Application fee of $100.
Structural Integration training requires a background of careful preparation of body, mind and spirit.
The following requirements and suggests are designed with this kind of preparation in mind:
Experience of the Basic 10 Sessions of Structural Integration - The Ten Sessions of SI rooted in Dr. Rolf’s work are strongly suggested prior to the start of class. The first three sessions are required. A directory of GSI Practitioners can be found on the Guild's website or students can contact the administrator for help in facilitating such required sessions or if practical considerations preclude receiving the full Basic 10-Series. If applicants have only received the first three sessions prior to the start of training, they will be required to serve as a model during their phase II training. Student model fee is an additional $200.
Emotional & Psychological Preparedness - Applicants must possess a mature understanding of themselves and others. We look for intellectual understanding, integration of personal insight and academic or personal experience that could assist in the Client/Practitioner relationship. College courses, individual therapy or group psychotherapy, independent seminars and workshops are a few areas in which a candidate may gain psychological awareness and understanding. Other modalities are available and may be used to prepare in this area. A candidate must also demonstrate success in life. The ability to undertake and complete a significant task over an extended period is a crucial personal skill. This may be met by obvious professional, business, educational, or personal accomplishments.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and in possession of a high school diploma or General Education Development (GED) Certificate.
Non-Discriminatory Clause - The Guild for Structural Integration accepts students based upon their personal abilities and aptitudes, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin or disabilities.
