Training Courses


Two Day or Three Day Short Courses are designed for clinicians who want to learn how to maximize adaptive functioning of their patient’s brain through the use of the energy and information from different Brain Systems.

The workshops are hands on: dynamic and interactive exercises, DVD recordings of actual clinical sessions, and therapy demonstrations and practice activities.

As a clinician, you will experience first hand how to harness the positive and adaptive neuropathways that are always present in the brain.



Changing Non-Conscious Emotional Networks & Transforming Your Work with Complex Clients: New Experiential Therapeutic Approaches 

October 25-26th, 2018

Beatriz and Terry Sheldon will be hosting a two day workshop on CIMBS in conjunction with Maximising Therapeutic Effectiveness in Birmingham, UK.  This course will be a combination of perspectives, approaches, interventions and principles to enhance your trust and confidence in yourselves, your patients, and the therapeutic process.  This will enable you to tap into previously unknown resources in yourself to more effectively achieve the goals of therapy. We believe you will be able to go home with some new interventions and approaches that you will be excited to use the next time you see patients.

More information and registration can be found on the Maximising Therapeutic Effectiveness website HERE.



The next workshops in Seattle will be held in Spring of 2019 as Beatriz and Terry Sheldon are taking a sabbatical from teaching to focus on writing a book on CIMBS.
