The next Intensive Course starts in the Autumn, see below for dates and registration.
A good way to start learning about becoming an IOPT practitioner is to do an Introductory Course such as the one currently available with Lucy Jameson.
These Intensive Education Courses take place twice a year and offer an opportunity to learn and work with Vivian Broughton in a closed group context over a period of 6 months. It is an online course and so offers an opportunity to learn and experience IOPT Therapy for anyone who has access to internet, wherever in the world.
The course is online and comprises four 4-day modules over a period of 6 months. The course language is English, and the course timings are aimed to make the course available to a variety of time zones. See below for more details.
During the course Vivian will cover the basics of IOPT theory and practice, through lectures, discussion and experiential work. The course is likely to be of interest to anyone wanting to understand IOPT better and can form part of the IOPT student practitioner's ongoing education. However, please be aware that the responsible IOPT practitioner must be prepared to commit themselves to many years of serious study, and these intensives can only be part of that. This Course offers the opportunity to study and learn with one of the most experienced IOPT practitioners.

Vivian's thoughts about Becoming an IOPT Practitioner
Each Intensive module will be for four days online with Vivian, and will include a specific theoretical focus (see below), discussion, Intention Method work with participants, small group work and Q&A sessions. Participants commit to all four modules. The group is a closed group, and if a module is missed there is no possibility of catching up in a future course.
The theoretical component will be based on the Online Lecture Series Vivian did in 2020, and participants who sign up for the whole course can purchase this lecture series at a 30% discounted price.
The intensives will take place on 'international time' so as to make them as available as possible to different areas of the western area of the world.
Each day will start at 12.00 midday UK time and finish at 8.00pm UK time. The starting time is usually the equivalent of 7.00 am New York time, 4.00am San Francisco time, however participants need to check because of the shifts in time in the UK and other countries in spring and autumn.
Next Course Dates:
Module 1: 14-17 September 2021: Trauma and the Psyche
Module 2: 9-12 November 2021: The Trauma Biography
Module 3: 19-22 January 2022: Perpetrators & Victims
Module 4: 12-15 April 2022: The Intention Method
The Course will be limited to 20 participants.
These courses are intended for people who are interested in becoming IOPT practitioners, and can become part of the students ongoing learning towards becoming a practitioner. Participants will have some knowledge of IOPT and have some personal experience of the Intention Method, whether in a group or in individual sessions. A good way to start your practitioner education is by doing the Introduction to IOPT with Lucy Jameson.
Please be aware that becoming an IOPT practitioner is a serious responsibility, and requires considerable commitment over some years. To work with the psychological vulnerability of others requires the practitioner to make such a commitment. These intensives can form part of this journey. If you have any questions about eligibility you can contact Vivian.

The Intensive Modules will be over four days and will run on 'international time':
Each day of is eight hours. Days will start at 12.00 midday UK time and run until 8.00pm UK time. This means that people in different countries can reasonably join, particularly the more western end of the world. You have to work out your own start and finish times.
During the days we will have breaks for refreshments and a longer break half-way through the day - 'lunch time'.
The Zoom joining link will be emailed to participants the day before the start of each course. For preparatory information scroll down the page.
Please read THE INTENSIVE COURSE CONDITIONS.
Everyone attending one of these intensives must complete the IOPT Intensive Online Course Agreement Form. This is mandatory and you will not be able to join the group if you have not completed this form. The form completion will then apply to any further IOPT Online Intensive Course you attend with Vivian, so you will only have to do this once.
JOINING THE GROUP
You will be emailed the day before the start of each module giving the joining link and the password to enter the Zoom meeting room.
The room will be open half an hour before the start (11.30am UK time) so you can arrive and familiarise yourself with the technology and chat to other participants.
We will start at 12.00 midday UK time and work through the day until 8.00pm UK time.
PREPARATION FOR EACH MODULE.
Please make sure you are in a closed, quiet environment so that you are not disturbed while we are working, that your computer webcam lens is clean and you have good lighting on your face so it is easy to see you. Also, if you can, turn off notifications on your computer and turn your phone off during processes. There must be no other person in the room with you, and please do not have children or animals in your room. If you are working or resonating for someone else it can be distracting.
