Entry to the diploma programme entails registering as a student of Process Work. To do this, it is important that your deepest life process and a current night-time dream confirm that this step is right for you. After working with your dreaming process with a certified Process Worker (who may also be your personal therapist), he or she will write a recommendation for you, welcoming you to become a student. You will also need to complete an application which in accordance with the spirit of the training, includes your night-time dream that confirms this step, along with other information about you, and your past training and experience. Your application together with the recommendation will be presented to the RSPOPUK Board of Studies for formal acceptance. Once accepted, you will then be welcomed as a new student at the next RSPOPUK General Assembly, and on the Student and Diplomate and Learning Community email strings.
Application forms are available from the Coordinator of Training
(or download PDF on RHS panel above). The student registration form and oath of confidentiality (both below as PDFs) have to be completed and returned, together with a cheque for fees, to the Coordinator of Training. The registration form requires details of who is presenting you, names of the three people on your Study Committee, a curriculum vitae, a recent photograph and a short letter of presentation.
Forming a Study Committee
After being accepted by the General Assembly, you have up to three months in which to select (and inform the Coordinator of Training) three people to form your study committee. The person who recommended you and welcomed you into your studies will be your first committee member. Your committee consists of at least two certified process workers. It is often useful to have another UK student on your study committee and to choose people who either live in the UK or visit on a regular basis.
The study committee is your main resource in training matters. Its function is to accompany, support and challenge the student, help develop his/her talents and criticize when necessary. It is your responsibility to consult regularly with all members of your study committee, (at least twelve hours a year with one member and at least four hours a year with the other two members), and, with them, tackle any problems and devise your best and most rewarding way through the diploma training.
The study committee is at the core of the training programme. The student together with his/her study committee members is encouraged to, and responsible for, developing an individualised learning plan – A plan that assures the learning of all core areas of Process Work, as well as one that supports the student’s dreams, special gifts, and includes areas of interest for further research into the application of process work. That is, the student’s course of study is steered by his or her dreams, involvement in the world, and individuation path that together the student and the study committee follow, discuss, shape, and review. The student’s journey of learning and individuation is supported not only by the study committee but also by RSPOPUK, and the national and international learning communities of Process Work.
