Elective Options

Elective credit does not expire, and can be used for either CAMT I or CAMT II credit, no matter when it was earned. 

     Receiving AMT "For-Credit" Sessions: Learn by experiencing the work--come as a client to an Instructor, approved Assistant, or CAMT II practitioner for AMT work. A-T Instructors give a discount to all CAMT I and CAMT II enrollees. If approved AMT providers are not available in your area, you may request credit for receiving a related modality from a local practitioner.4

     Practice Log: document a min. of 25 AMT sessions, using the log form available on the CAMT site.

     Practice Enhancement Assessment: clients, peers, and mentors selected by you complete a private poll, evaluating key aspects of your work and practice. We present you with an anonymous summary, and help you apply the invaluable learning gained. (Elective for CAMT I; included in CAMT II fee.)

     Advising: Meet in-person or by phone with the faculty advisor of your choice, who will help you clarify and design the learning focus of your Certification program. (Elective for CAMT I; two 30-min. sessions are included in CAMT II fee.)

     Professional Coaching: Get help setting a professional course for yourself, taking action, and staying on track. Topics may include practice building, professional development, career direction, client or ethical issues, burnout and inspiration, wellness and lifestyle support, team leadership or clinic management, etc. In-person or by telephone.

     Client Supervision: Bring a client, friend, or colleague and work on them together with your Instructor. Receive specific supervision on assessment, body reading, strategizing, body use, technique, session design, etc. Optionally, come with another practitioner for paired supervision (2 practitioner, 2 clients) to learn from someone else's analysis (and to reduce costs).

     Hands-On Mentoring: Personalized, real-time one-on-one instruction in hands-on skills. May include working on and/or receiving work from your Instructor for individualized specifics on technique, palpatory accuracy, effectiveness, and more.

     Shadow (Audit) an Instructor's Session: Observe your Instructor working with a student or client, and afterwards discuss and reflect on what was learned. Auditing a session is a great way to learn client skills, assessment, strategizing, pacing, session design, etc.

     Study/Review/Supervision Groups: We encourage local or virtual study groups, whether formal or informal. Contact us for ideas and to be put in touch with other practitioners.

     Custom-designed individual study, internship, writing, service, or research projects. Learn in your own way—the possibilities are endless. Examples include: video supervision, service or research projects, writing for publication, internships with A-T, etc. Credit is assessed and arranged case-by-case, based on the learning, contribution, and time involved; a review fee applies. Contact us to discuss your ideas for an Individual Project.

Notes:

2 Separate application and training is required for "Table Assistant" approval.

3 Electives must be with approved providers and be documented via CAMT forms for credit. All electives and sessions have a fee associated with them, unless described as "included".

Recording your Credits

To earn credit, all requirements and electives must be documented by either:

1. A Certificate of Completion (in the case of workshops), or,

2. The appropriate "for credit" form, which is available at the CAMT participant page.

A "Course Record" form is available to help you track and record your progress. Although A-T can provide a transcript of CE credits on record, obtaining and completing the required documentation is the enrolleeƕs responsibility.
