The Criteria for Approving Teachers

The Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy Association of North America (BCTA/NA) has established basic criteria for approving teachers in the biodynamic approach to Craniosacral Therapy. Learn about the fundamental principle, teaching goals and teaching skills that form the teacher approval criteria.

BCTA/NA Guidelines for Education

When establishing their own Biodynamic Cranioscral Therapy foundation certification training programs, all BCTA/NA Approved Teachers agree to comply with a common set of educational guidelines. Review the Guidelines for Education.
