It is in our Professional Development classes that the essence of each student therapist begins to take root and develop. Many of the students have life experiences and prior work history from which to draw upon as they define themselves in a new profession. It is in this professional educational setting that their dreams begin to take on a life of their own. Our professional development classes cover a range of classes including NC law, Professional Ethics, Somatics and Communications, Business and Marketing, and our personal integration class; Student Synthesis.
