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.


Beatriz and Terry Sheldon are currently taking a sabbatical from teaching to focus on writing a book on CIMBS.  Specific dates for all future trainings are pending and will likely not take place until 2020.  Dates will be posted here as soon as they are finalized.
