Gruppo formazione

Our educational philosophy: experiencing, learning, integrating, applying.

The program includes four modules, aimed to the previous goals (download for details).

  • Dmt workshops, in the chosen location or elsewhere (at least 50% with Dmt-ER® professionals)
  • Educational training: 3 intensive theoretical-practical seminars yearly on average (same locations for all students)
  • E-learning for psychological, socio-pedagogical and anatomical-physiological topics
  • Application experiences and supervision in the chosen location

The modular system allows:

  • to acknowledge credits
  • to plan the training in a flexible personal way
  • to choose when and where attending educational activities

The costs depend on which personal program has been planned and how many credits can be acknowledged.

The activities managed by the School for 2019 have the following costs, at the rates reserved to our students:

  • Admission fee: € 100
  • Training: € 260 training for each 32-hour 4-days seminar
  • Group Supervision: € 260 for an annual cycle of 30 hours
  • National Supervision Seminars: € 60 for each 7-hours day of supervision
  • Experiential workshops: from 5 to 8 euros per hour (if managed by the School)

The Dmt-ER® Training costs, therefore, varies between 1300 and 1500 euros a year. For a personalized evaluation, contact directly This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
