You need to have graduate-level qualifications in mental health professional training to undertake the AIT training i.e. psychotherapy and counselling or equivalent (BACP, UKCP, or BPC membership), Clinical or Counselling Psychology, Family Therapy, Psychiatry or Psychiatric Nursing.
AIT Basics seminar is a prequite to all other advanced seminars such as: the Mastering AIT Practice (MAP) seminar, the Presence and Dissociation seminar, the Attachment Seminar; the Depth (Jungian) Seminar; The PTSD Seminar; the Historical Trauma Seminar; the AIT Dream Works Seminar and many more. Further information on all of the AIT seminars can be found on the AITI website.
Each seminar normally takes place over 3 days offering AIT theory and practices, often leading not only to deep learning but also to self-healing and discovery.
The requirement for AIT certification includes completion of the AIT Basics seminar, post-Basic supervised practice, the Mastering AIT Practice (MAP) seminar, and post-MAP supervised practice. However you do not need to be certified to use AIT in your practice given that you are supervised. After taking the Basics seminar, therapists are encouraged to practice AIT immediately.
