The Neufeld Institute offers a number of opportunities for further study for those who have completed the foundational Intensives, Intensive I: Making Sense of Kids; Intensive II: The Separation Complex and Intensive III: Becoming Attached.
Advanced Courses & Intensives
For students who have graduated from the Intensive II, we offer advanced versions of most of our courses. In addition we also have some advanced courses that require prerequisites, such as Play & Attachment, Play & Emotion, and Making Sense of Therapy. The focus of the advanced courses extends to adults as well as children. Please consult the website for scheduled courses.
Study Group and Video Course Support
Our two-year facilitator diploma program was retired in June 2019 and replaced with the support programs described below. For more information about the changes and implications for those who were interested in applying for the two-year facilitator diploma program, please download this PDF document.
If you are representing an agency, school board or church seeking information on how to get your own people equipped and supported to deliver a specific course, please contact our office for details.
We are pleased when enthusiastic students wish to share the concepts they have learned in the courses they have taken with us. As long as intellectual property is recognized and concepts are properly referenced, we invite our students to do so. We reserve our formal support for this endeavour, however, for our more advanced students, as we believe that our courses are our best instrument for equipping in the attachment-based developmental paradigm.
We are developing two levels of support for our students who wish to share the concepts they have learned with others. All support is delivered through our Virtual Campus.
The first level of support is SUPPORT CENTRE MEMBERSHIP and is available to students to apply for once they have completed our foundational studies (Intensives 1-3, Science of Emotion, Play 101) and successfully completed the required case study exercise. This support is provided for a number of our VIDEOCOURSES and is delivered through our Support Centre on Campus. Support Centre members are able to register for special facilitation versions of the courses, make arrangements for consults with our faculty, access special support materials, and attend Dr. Neufeld’s master classes. The base annual subscription fee for Support Center membership is $200. Other than the master classes, separate fees apply for the additional courses and consults. For more information on applying for Support Centre Membership, please download the following PDF document.
The second level of support is to be formally LISTED as a course facilitator through our Institute website. Although not a requirement to run videocourse groups, a LISTING does communicate to the public a more formal level of endorsement and support. It should be noted however, that a listing cannot be counted upon to find students. Support Centre members can apply for listing after a minimum of one year of facilitation studies. As long as they remain active, listed facilitators receive complimentary campus access. We plan to have this support in place by January 2021.
As stated above, our former two-year facilitator diploma program was retired in June of 2019 and is being replaced with the support programs outlined above. We are now able to support more of our students in more ways, as well as earlier in their course of studies with us, than before. For more detailed information, please download this PDF document.
Practitioner Support and Training
The Neufeld Institute offers exceptional support to independently credentialed helping professionals who have completed the required prerequisites with the Neufeld Institute (depending on the program) and are seeking to develop insight to enrich their practice within an attachment-based developmental approach. Please visit our About Practitioner Support and Training webpage.
Certificate of Studies related to Sleep and Bedtime Issues
As a result of requests for support for those who are helping parents with bedtime issues, we have put together a course of studies that we believe will give the depth of insight and understanding needed for this task. Please click HERE for full details.
