The Certified Forest Therapy Practitioner Training costs € 960 for the 3-month period.
This training is for those who wish to build further on their Forest Bathing expertise or previous Forest Therapy training. It offers expertise and guidance on how to move Forest Bathing from a wellness-based and preventative practice to a treatment intervention and rehabilitation support for specific populations.
With the FTI Forest Therapy Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme you will:
- Receive a tool kit to integrate Forest Therapy treatment and rehabilitation practice into the health care system.
- Integrate new skills to develop your life and career path.
- Learn about the clinical applications of forest therapy for specific populations.
Please, note that in order to be accepted on this training it is required that you have a previous certification on Forest Bathing, Shinrin-Yoku or Forest Therapy with an organization validated by the FTI.
The first step of the pathway of the Forest Therapy Training and Certification (CPD) is a 4-day blended online training. Immediately following this, you begin your mandatory 3-month Mentored Practice. After this period, once you have met the requirements to be a competent guide, you will receive your certification. This final Mentored Practice will enable you to integrate your learning into your work practice.
