Bodyworkers may be accepted into the Level One or Two of the Psychotherapy training in order to learn about trauma and attachment, and how this knowledge cam support their practice as bodyworkers. Bodyworkers who take these levels of training are not trained to be psychotherapists, but rather integrate the interventions into their existing skill set.
