Course information 

Intended mainly for licensed or registered therapists, the Advanced Level 2 module offers eligible students the opportunity to clinically observe and practice NVR work under supervision, as part of their certification requirements. The module fosters students’ ability to autonomously apply NVR’s generic principles to new situations and contexts and create new transferable knowledge.

During this phase, practitioners will develop and present a case project, focusing on an application context of their choice. Students who successfully complete AL-2 and its related assignments will be certified as NVR Practitioners.

More information on certification will made available bt the end of 2023.
