Body-Mind Psychotherapy Training was developed by Susan Aposhyan beginning in 1984. The first training was in 1996. BMP training has generally occurred in small groups (under 30 people) and emphasizes the teacher or clinician’s own embodiment. In 2020, due to the pandemic, we did our first exclusively online Level One training. We had 40 people from 4 continents. Now you study this material independently, and satisfy the requirements for Level 1 certification.
