Experienced SE Practitioners who have integrated SE into their professional practice modalities contribute an important element of the learning experience for students by providing sessions for credit to class participants. Approved session providers may sometimes offer sessions to students onsite during the course of a training module, or they may provide sessions outside of the class environment to SE learners as they proceed through the SE training. For the sessions to count for credit, providers must apply and be approved for the student’s current level of training.

The sessions provided for credit throughout the training are intended as a support for the students’ experiential learning process of SE, although it is understood that these sessions may also contribute to the learner’s personal change process. Sessions provided in this context may differ from ongoing therapy in that providers will not necessarily have a long-term therapeutic relationship with the participant.

We appreciate the service that our approved session providers offer to our students. We understand that providers also benefit professionally and financially from offering these sessions. Please note, however, that being a session provider should not be considered a career path. We cannot guarantee that providers will progress through the provider levels or maintain approval to provide credited sessions/consults after receiving initial approval.

Please be sure you have read and understood our Personal Session Provider Guidelines here.
