Schools that teach the biodynamic craniosacral therapy foundation training, as defined on this site, are invited to participate.
- Affiliation will become available starting April 30, 2007.
- Applications must be submitted by email to the admin address at lower right throughout this site.
- Organizations, not individuals, are eligible for participation.
- Applicants must have an established (at least five foundation trainings completed) program that teaches the 700 hour biodynamic craniosacral curriculum (350 classroom hours, 350 clinical and independent study hours).
- Applicants must have the sponsorship of an existing member of IABT.
- Applicants must be recognized by regulatory authorities in the jurisdiction in which they reside. In the USA, this usually means being approved by the individual state Dept. of Education. In Europe, this usually means approval by a national office or primary professional regulatory body. IABT relies on this authority for most Quality Assurance measures. If an IABT school loses its status with the relevant regulatory office, participation in IABT is suspended.
- The application is made in the form of a letter, and includes full address and contact information, a complete history of foundation courses taught including dates and number of students, a list of all Teachers with a current CV for each including their biodynamic education source, a copy of the current biodynamic curriculum, a copy of the school's currently applicable code of ethics and complaint handling process, and evidence of state, national or appropriate association approval status.
- The application letter will be reviewed by the IABT's Council of Schools (one representative from each organization) and a consensus decision will be made promptly. If the decision is yes, the school will be added to the roster, a representative will begin to participate in Council meetings, and the school can then issue BCST status using the IABT name on its diplomas. If the decision is no, further dialogue can ensue to resolve the objections leading to the negative decision.
- If an investigation of the school is necessary, fees may apply.
