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 the personal planning, how many credits can be acknowledged and the costs of the activities attended out of Italy.

Here the fees for 2020, at the rates reserved to our students:

  • Application fee for foreign students: € 100 (no supervisions included)
  • Training: € 280 training for each 32-hour 4-days intensive workshop
  • Group Supervision: € 70 for every 7-hour one-day supervision
  • Experiential workshops: from 5 to 8 euros per hour (if managed by the School)
