Finally, you will be able to understand how all these different disciplines come together under the integrated psychotherapy umbrella to help you provide a tailored experience of care to your clients.

The course has a recommended 260 hours of study, to provide students with a comprehensive view of all different types of therapy theories and application.

Therapists that offer an integrated approach will often experience better, more efficient results in their sessions.

Alternatively, you could study other forms of therapy, such as subjective therapies, intersubjective therapies, objective or interobjective. Each field will contribute to a better perspective for diagnosis and assistance.
