The Atlantis model emphasizes GIM as a music-centered psychotherapy for individuals and groups.  Our curriculum incorporates GIM guiding skills in combination with the use of music as one's co-therapist to support depth work with clients.  Our trainings offer a blend of opportunities for interactive learning, personal  depth exploration, community building and expression of one's potential to become a skilled GIM guide.

Atlantis Institute offers a post-graduate supervisor-in-training  course to develop the skill set for becoming a supervisor. Graduates may be invited to an apprenticeship program to become an AMI Primary Trainer with the Atlantis model.
