About Continuing Education Credits for Kathy Kain’s Trainings

(updated August 13, 2019, for courses beginning in 2018 and thereafter)

Continuing Education credits are available for many, but not all, of our training programs. To find out whether Continuing Education (CE) credit is available for a particular class, and how many CE Hours will be awarded please see the web page for that class. If the web page for your training does not specifically indicate that CE credits are available, with a link back to this page, then we have not yet determined whether credits will be offered for the class. In all cases where CE credits are offered, the cost is $35 per certificate, payable by check or in cash at the training. Upon completion of the required hours and evaluation forms, students will be given instructions on how to obtain their certificates.

It is the participant's responsibility to check with their individual state boards to verify CE requirements for their state.

Why “Somatic Practice” ?

Kathy uses the term “Somatic Practice” to describe her work and educational approach because it can’t be simplified into a definable method or a predetermined set of techniques. Practitioners on this training path choose to engage ongoing practice that gradually changes their way of working, touching, relating, and being—thus it feels more accurate to call this work a “practice” rather than naming it as a particular “thing” or a certain person’s “training method”.
