Diving Into the PAT Learning Experience

What’s happening beneath the surface in the therapy room, and what are the best ways to learn how to work with clients in non-ordinary states of consciousness? Which skills are less effective when a client is outside ‘normal’ consciousness? What additional therapeutic skills can support clients in PAT sessions and integration?

Join our faculty and staff as they discuss these and other core questions that guide Beckley Academy’s course design.
