CranioSacral Therapy Mentorship Program
The mentorship program is designed to give practitioners the support and flexibility they need to help improve their art and practice of CranioSacral Therapy. Becoming a skilled and magnificent practitioner of CranioSacral Therapy is about more than the techniques of CranioSacral Therapy. It is also about the art of doing the work.
No matter what your level of skill, training, or experience, the mentorship program can be modified to meet your needs.
The core mission of the CST Clinical mentorship program is to help elevate CST trained therapists in the manual therapy profession by training and supporting more experienced practitioners to help less established or newer practitioners grow and develop professionally, within CST programs. The program is committed to fostering collegial and professional training/support programs for both mentees and mentors as well as working collaboratively with modality leaders to ensure good standards of modality oversight as well as mentorship oversight.
Types of mentorship possible:
- 1×1 mentorship – This is time spent between you and a certified CST mentor. Your learning needs and skill development are the priority. This can happen in both in-person and virtual formats.
- Small group mentorship – This is time spent with you, a mentor, and a small cohort of other practitioners working on similar concerns (usually 4-8 participants). Similar concerns could be technique driven, practice building, ethics of practice, case studies, etc. Small groups will always be selected by training and development level of the practitioners. This can also happen in both in-person and virtual formats.
- Large group mentorship – This is time spent in a large group format (greater than 8 students). Large group mentorship might be a new class, a larger study group, or a virtual supervision group. This can also happen in both in-person and virtual formats.
