Human Systems Integrator™
Human Systems Integrator™ is the terminal certification awarded by Global SI. It's the culmination of six areas of study, which are described below.
The Structural Integration Basic 10
Over the course of The Foundational 10 Series Program, the student will be introduced to the historical and theoretical foundations of Structural Integration (SI) as well as learning the hands on and movement work that accompanies each of the sessions. Particular importance will be placed on the principle driven/process oriented context of SI, as well as the standard anatomy and skill building aspects of more technique driven modalities. In addition, heavy emphasis will be placed on the student’s own embodiment of the work as a key factor of their ability to deliver the SI experience to their patients.
All classes are stand-alone units with the exception of session 7, which requires completion of Sessions 1-6 as prerequisites. Each course will provide the student with a discrete set of techniques that can be applied independently. Those students seeking a more holistic approach to offer their patients will benefit from learning and utilizing the 10 Series as a sequential, all encompassing protocol.
These courses are designed for those practitioners with a solid foundation in anatomy and physiology, palpation, and who have been practicing manual therapy for a minimum of 5 years. Instructor approval required for those not meeting these criteria.
Explorations in Movement
In this module students will learn to facilitate stand alone movement sessions in order to refresh the body map of their patients.
In this class the relationship between thoughts, structure, and function will be examined. A deeper look at how the patients emotional experiences, belief systems, and habitual thinking patterns influence physical health and well being will be explored.
Practitioner Self Awareness
In this course we will further examine how the state and process of the practitioner influences the ability of the patient to make their own shifts. What we as clinicians bring into the session mentally and emotionally will serve as either a block or a window of opportunity for the patient. Essentially, we can't take someone where we haven't gone ourselves.
Pain Science Implications
In this module students will learn the basic premises of this emerging body of research. We will also explore how this changes our historical understanding of how manual therapy works, and how this affects the explanatory models and narratives that we use with our patients. We will explore how this shift takes us from an operator model to that of an interactor/educator model.
In this class we will explore working outside of the Basic 10.
