Level 3 Diploma in Mindfulness for People with their Animals: Trust Technique Practitioner
Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Mindfulness for People with their Animals: Trust Technique Practitioner
The Trust Technique is based on the theory that deepening the connection between people and their animals can transform the lives of both. It uses mindfulness as a basis for aiming to resolve problems for the individual and also for the animal. Although an individual may initially seek help for a problem with their animal, they often also benefit personally from using the technique. A Trust Technique Practitioner holds a space of supporting people to work with an animal that they are responsible for.
This qualification consists of 7 modules.
It introduces learners to the history and essence of The Trust Technique and develops the learner’s knowledge of the context of animal-assisted healing within the UK.
Learners explore the principles of the Trust Technique and develop their own understanding of the principles.
The key principles underpinning this qualification are:
- Creative Reaction – this involves the learner coming into the Present Moment with an animal, creating a mindful state of being, which the animal reacts to
- Realisation Learning – this is a process by which response to a certain situation can be changed over time, altering patterns of behaviour for the person and the animal
- Trusted Cooperation – this principle entails building trust and confidence between the individual and the animal
Learners must be 18 or over
