M.E.T.A./Hakomi Comprehensive Training Overview

The M.E.T.A. and Hakomi Institute of Oregon/Comprehensive Training is a two-year course (20 weekends) which covers the full curriculum of the Hakomi Method and The Re-Creation of the Self (R-CS) model, as well as foundational training in Trauma and Attachment work.

M.E.T.A./Hakomi Comprehensive Training includes discussion and practice of the theory and techniques of Hakomi, Re-Creation of the Self, Attachment and Trauma.

  • Specific theory and interventions for each category of wounding, including Hakomi accessing, transformation and integration
  • R-CS state shifting, Identification & Disidentification
  • Attachment assessment and interventions
  • Trauma assessment and interventions

Year One of the comprehensive training teaches the fundamentals of Hakomi and R-CS and introduces attachment and trauma assessment concepts. Students are taught Level 1 of Hakomi, from forming the therapeutic relationship, to accessing deeper processes, to tracking and responding to somatic expression, to transforming and integrating core formative material. This Hakomi curriculum is interwoven with the R-CS maps of the Self and R-CS techniques for shifting states, as well as Attachment Theory elements of engaging client participation, and the basics of recognizing and responding to Traumatic activation.

Participants are taught through short talks, unique, skill-based experiential exercises, supervised practice, demonstrations, movement, and video review. Participants can expect a low student-teacher ratio, a relaxed and participatory learning environment and numerous opportunities to practice new skills with other group members.

Year Two of the M.E.T.A. and Hakomi Institute of Oregon Comprehensive Training continues, refines and extends Level 1 work. There are three general areas of study:

1. Enhanced Skills: The same Hakomi topics taught in the first year are revisited at more advanced levels. Emphasis is on both refining and extending skills and gaining fluidity with core processes. R-CS techniques are presented at more subtle levels, and further development of attachment interventions and trauma related assessment and procedures are provided.

2. Strategy and Maps: practitioners are shown specific and effective ways to manage client processes. Emphasis is on moving from reflexive tactical skill to deliberate strategic choices in supporting client evolution. In support of this, the clinical maps of Character Theory, Sensitivity Cycle, Interactive Systems and further R-CS elaboration are introduced.

3. The Being of the Therapist: perhaps most importantly, Year 2 of the M.E.T.A. / Hakomi Comprehensive Training focuses carefully on both the individual resources and personal obstacles each student brings to his or her work. Emphasis is on recognizing and resolving the distinctive inner issues that limit effectiveness, and supporting the unique vision and talents of each student to develop a personal style and orientation to working.

As with Year One, a variety of teaching methods are used to present the material: readings, short-talks, unique, skill-based experiential exercises, supervised practice, demonstrations, movement, and video review. Participants can expect a low student-teacher ratio, an auxiliary  staff of dedicated and knowledgeable teaching assistants, a relaxed and participatory learning environment, numerous opportunities to practice new skills with other group members, and a detailed Training Manual.

If you have completed Comprehensive Year One, or Professional Skills Module 1 and Re-Creation of the Self, this is a unique opportunity to join a solid, committed learning community and deepen your study and practice of Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches.
