Certificate in Autogenic Training (Online) – 12 hours

Autogenic Training (AT) is a recognized technique in psychology for combatting stress and improving mental and physical health and concentration. It was originally developed by the German psychiatrist Johannes Heinrich Schultz and is one of the most famous and oldest techniques for achieving deep relaxation. On this course we will focus on AT: Autogenic Training without autosuggestion (AAT), which represents a continuation, synthesis, and improvement of the techniques of classical AT. It is not necessary to have any previous training in AT to attend this course.

AAT represents the integration of selected exercises, whose aim is to help people to get rid of excess psychological and physiological tension by making useful changes in your brain waves and balancing your Autonomous Nervous System. The main goal of the training is for the participants to master the independent practise of this relaxation technique. After the course, AAT is applied as needed and regular exercise is not necessary. Learning how to do these exercises requires little of your time.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to do them in just a few minutes and in almost any situation: before important events, public presentations, in stressful situations, in the office, before going to bed for better sleep, etc.

Autogenic Training is indicated for:

– People who are stressed, work hard, and are at risk of, or already in burn out;

– People who suffer from chronic tension;

– Anxiety and mild to moderate depression;

– Headache, thyroid problem, or hormonal imbalance;

– Prevention or treatment of psychosomatic illnesses;

– High blood pressure and bronchial asthma (Autogenic training was recommended in the 2016 European Society of Cardiology Guidelines for prevention of cardiovascular disease in persons who experience psychosocial problems)

– Psychogenic infertility;

– Mood regulation;

– Professional athletes, especially where deep concentration and the ability to maintain attention for a long period of time is required (diving, tennis, etc.);

– Students and employees who need to manage an excessive load of work during a busy/examination period;

– Healthy people to achieve better concentration and relaxation, but also to increase creativity, imagination, fitness level, and increase the capacity for work.
