Coherence Therapy

Training & Certification Program

Dyad Practicum Sign-Up


Dyad Practicum (DP) consists of four 90-minute teleconference training sessions for two trainees, who conduct a Coherence Therapy session with each other in each meeting under the direct coaching of a Certified Trainer.


Each trainee experiences being the therapist twice and the client twice. This format is uniquely effective for learning the moment-to-moment process and flow of Coherence Therapy by experiencing it, both as the therapist and as the client.


Each DP meeting is recorded and playback is available via secure password to only the two trainees and the Institute's trainers and directors. Listening to one's DP sessions enhances learning significantly.






CANCELLATIONS/REFUNDS:  You may cancel your enrollment in Dyad Practicum and receive a refund until 10 days prior to the first of the four scheduled meetings.  Your refund will be the tuition you paid minus a US$175 processing fee.  To cancel, send an email titled "Cancelling Dyad Practicum" to


CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT:  For a 6-hour Continuing Education certificate (USA licensees only), after completion of the Dyad Practicum there is a fee of US$40 that must be paid to R. Cassidy Seminars. Please see CE information below.

Learning objectives. By conducting practice sessions with the instructor's real-time coaching and then discussing the session, you will advance in your ability to--
1. Define and carry out Coherence Therapy's methods for the efficient discovery of the specific implicit (unconscious) emotional schemas maintaining the existence of a given presenting problem or symptom.
2. Define and carry out Coherence Therapy's methods for the integration of discovered emotional schemas into conscious, daily experience.
3. Define and carry out Coherence Therapy's methods for the transformational change of an integrated emotional schema, permanently ending that schema's production of the problem or symptom.
