The Institute for Music and Consciousness offers trainings in the Continuum Model of GIM. The training is organized developmentally in levels according to the supportive, re-educative, and reconstructive continuum of psychotherapy; simpler Music & Imagery methods are pedagogical preparation for GIM at Level III. Each of the levels is a stand alone training in a method adapted from GIM, and each includes a practicum. Seminars and trainings are offered internationally; ongoing training in the Continuum Model takes place in South Korea at the Ewha Womans University Wellness Center (EMUWEL); and in China at the Beijing Music Wellness Center. Seminars and trainings include:

  • Imagery for Wellness: Training in Resource-oriented MI (Introductory level)
  • Imagery as Psychotherapy: Training in Issue-oriented MI (Professonal level)
  • Guided Imagery and Music: Music-centered Training in GIM (Professional level)
  • Music as a Health Resource Seminars
  • Group Music & Imagery Seminars


Continuum Model of GIM Trainings for GIM Fellows:

  • Introduction
  • Supportive MI/GIM
  • Re-educative MI/GIM for GIM Fellows
