Learn how to become a licensed APP therapist
Jozef Vervoort, head of the training company Mozart-Brain-Lab, is the only one that was personally assigned by Prof. Tomatis to teach and supervise the “Audio-Psycho-Phonology according to Prof. Tomatis”. Mr. Vervoort also received all books and research documents from Prof. Tomatis with the aim to continue his work in the area of Audio-Psycho-Phonology.
Who is it for?
- Physicians, psychologists, therapists and pedagogues.
- People with other professions may take part in the training, but they will not get a license, which is a condition to practice APP and to be allowed to buy all the equipment needed to practice.
In particular cases Mozart-Brain-Lab decides on license allocation.
How long and where?
- Two courses, three weeks each, in a combination of theoretical and practical training.
- At the end of the second course a written examination is held.
After participating in both courses, passing the exam and agreeing in our license and network agreement, you will obtain your license. It permits you to practice APP within the field of your professional experience and to buy the required equipment.
We emphasise, that Tomatis-therapists have made their own experiences with the Tomatis-therapy. Therefore it is an enormous advantage for them to have their own therapy before or parallel with their APP-training.
