The professionalization days are workshops or event of practice, where graduated students come and give one or several treatments during the day, under the supervision of the instructor. It is comparable to the clinic day (the last day of the Therapist training opens to the public), but it has longest periods allowing the analyse and review of the treatment done, many revisions of the techniques and of course lots of constant questions and answers.
A student may also want to invite a patient, with whom he has difficulty in care. It will be taken as a case study by the instructor in front of the group.
Professionalization days are an great opportunity to meet up with other qualified practitioners, clients and to create a community of practice in you area.
