Basics Seminar – Advanced Integrative Therapy

Learn to Treat Trauma Quickly and Effectively: Basics Seminar – Advanced Integrative Therapy (Energy Psychology Approach)
*This seminar is a prerequisite for all other AIT seminars.


AIT (Previously called Seemorg Matrix Work) is the first complete body centered, psychodynamic, transpersonal energy psychotherapy. It dramatically accelerates and deepens growth, insight, transformation, consciousness, and ego development by providing profound and lasting relief from destructive desires, fantasies, compulsions, obsessions, addictions, negative beliefs, negative desires, self-destructive behavior, sexual and other forms of abuse, PTSD, flooding, and incoherence.

The instructor will discuss theory related to the primacy of trauma in the development of non-organic psychological disorders, and then offer training in relevant energy psychology skills and the AIT Covenant (a protocol that allies the client’s conscious and unconscious toward healing). Then, the instructor will explain, demonstrate, and lead practice of four basic trauma treatment protocols and two protocols that awaken or instill positive beliefs, attitudes, desires, and qualities. Finally, the instructor will help participants learn how to integrate meditation—the world’s oldest form of energy psychology—into their practices.

Course Topics: The Clinton-LeShan theory of trauma; AIT Covenant; Psychotherapy using the Chakras; Methods of removing resistance; Step-by-step protocols for transforming traumatic patterns and beliefs; Therapist self-care applications; Meditations to facilitate healing; Development of clients’ positive qualities; Rapid protocols for emergencies.
