IABT was founded in 2006 to support and develop the work of schools teaching a biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy. IABT promotes quality, innovation and responsibility in the design and implementation of biodynamic craniosacral therapy education and practice.
IABT schools offer the designation BCST (Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist) to graduates of their 700-hour training and also a post-graduate designation ABD (Advanced Biodynamic Diploma) indicating an additional 300 hours of training.
IABT schools use Suggested Learning Outcomes, Standards for Education and a Code of Professional Conduct, and related common understandings, as described on this site.
IABT uses a decentralized model of professional support; activities and management are locally administered within the autonomous systems of the member schools.
