SAI Level Two Certification for Therapists focuses on the co-regulation process of parent/carer child engagement. It involves analysis of stress patterns and the use of standardised assessments of child and adult attachment patterns. Therapists address parents’ and children’s sensory and attachment issues that impede the co-regulation process.

 

This training will involve individual supervision of two case studies of parent child engagement sessions. Duration of supervision for one case study: once every two weeks over a period of 14 weeks. Therapists then proceed to working on a further two single case studies. They will be required to have a check-in review supervision on week 6 of the process, then proceed unsupervised until completion of their case study. If there are any elements of the intervention where the Therapist's practice requires further supervision, the Therapist will be advised accordingly. On successful completion, the Therapist is Certified as an SAI Level 2 Therapist.
