BOWEN CONTINUING EDUCATION

Continuing education (CE) should be an exciting component of education for every practitioner. It is the forum where, having gained basic skills through the Practitioner Level Qualification, practitioners can expand and explore the heights they may move to in terms of a greater understanding of Bowenwork. CE provides an opportunity to increase practitioner skills, explore ways of working with particular clinical situations, and learn ways to enhance practice administration skills. With changing educational requirements to practice, together with the continual expansion of knowledge in all fields, it is important to always keep qualifications and continuing education (CE) up to date.

For Health Fund recognition, it is imperative to remain current else you risk losing this recognition and, as basic qualifications do change over years, may be required to complete some further study to become reaccredited.

 

BTA Instructors deliver the Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy (10534NAT), in addition to an extensive Continuing Education Program* including Practitioner Review Days, Special Revision, ‘Master’ class and Workshops – (scroll down for details)

*The Diploma of Specialised Bowen Therapy (10534NAT) is nationally recognised. Note that Continuing education classes are not nationally recognised, however they are Bowtech-accredited.

5: WORKSHOPS

A workshop program has been developed by experienced Bowtech Instructors worldwide to provide greater understanding of the technique. Each individual workshop is designed to expand the practitioner’s knowledge and understanding of Bowtech Bowenwork in a new or innovative way to enhance practitioner clinical skills. Each workshop provides additional material for the practitioner which is not covered in either the Bowtech Training program or reasonably expected to be addressed at Practitioner Review days and will have a practical focus. CE Workshops may offer new perspectives on understanding Bowtech Bowen, information on, or insights into the moves or ways in which to use Bowen in specialized areas to enhance the practitioner’s clinical practice. They may include for example, information that addresses Bowenwork from an emotional, energetic, anatomical or assessment perspective.

6: OTHER CE OPTIONS

(It is recommended that each practitioner check their practitioner association requirements as they can vary from association to association.)

Many theoretical courses round out CE requirements e.g. A & P courses (other than those required for qualification), business skills and communication skills to broaden the practitioner’s general knowledge base. Re-accreditaion for Senior First Aid may also be included.

Additionally attendance at Bowen Conferences can contribute to CE requirements.
