You’ve successfully completed one or more TIR and Life Stress Reduction Workshops…
Because of the unique session protocol and techniques of Applied Metapsychology, after having completed basic training in any technique, or set of techniques, it is highly recommended that you consider furthering your training and abilities as a facilitator by entering into an internship with your trainer. Internships can be conducted long distance for those who do not live close to a Certified Trainer, using a combination of phone, fax, email, etc. (In working long distance we of course need to take care to protect client confidentiality.)
Why take an Internship?
- Increase your certainty in using the techniques
- Strengthen your skills
- Prepare for applying for Certification with AMI

Why Complete an Internship: Either toward Certification by AMI or for the inherent value of the Internship itself?
A newly trained facilitator goes into session with the techniques, the Rules of Facilitation, enhanced communication skills, and a basic understanding of how and why the techniques they are using work, but is still a novice at applying the techniques.
Supervision by an AMI Certified Trainer during an internship provides ongoing feedback, help with case plans to meet the needs of your individual viewers, and the opportunity to use and improve your skills. After a fair amount of supervised session experience, the novice facilitator may quickly move from novice to advanced beginner, where you begin to use overall strategies instead of just rules.
For example you may gain certainty in:
- Assessing ego strength and environmental distractions
- Knowing when to get more data before proceeding with TIR
- Knowing which techniques to use for best results
- Addressing the specific needs of your clients
After an internship, a facilitator should be able to deliver consistently successful sessions.
Internships are a good way to quickly advance from novice to advanced beginner, and then, with further experience, to become competent, proficient, and, finally, expert.
Feedback has shown that compassion fatigue, often experienced by those in the helping professions, is not an issue for an expert facilitator because sessions almost always go to a satisfying end point for the viewer, enabling the facilitator to know each session that progress has been made.
Internships are offered by most Certified Trainers. An internship includes session-by-session supervision (technical direction) as needed and enhances a facilitator’s ability to follow the structured session protocol that is essential in the success of an Applied Metapsychology sessions. A technical director / supervisor can help to repair a difficult session, while at the same time giving the facilitator any additional data needed in order to be successful in future sessions. This arrangement benefits the facilitator, who learns from mistakes, and the viewer (client), whose difficulty is overcome.
The rewards of interning include increased certainty in using your tools, a deeper understanding of the basics of Applied Metapsychology, and even better and faster results for your clients.
