Information about MBL APP practitioner training according to Tomatis

If you wish to become a Tomatis Therapist and are looking for a training course in Audio-Psycho-Phonology (APP), Mozart-Brain-Lab Institute (MBL) is an excellent choice. The founder of the therapy, Professor Tomatis (1900-2001) handed to Jozef Vervoort, director of the MBL institute, the task of preserving his heritage and continuing his life's works. For the Belgian successor this means to continue perfecting the method, further the research, improve the therapy, and above all, train therapists to a level of excellence. For these reasons, MBL was founded as a research institute and, above all, as a training center.
 
The APP training is carried out by Jozef and his team. As the leading instructor, Jozef constantly ensures a rigorous, science-based training according to the principles of Professor Tomatis.
 
After the Professor's death, Jozef not only took over the task of training new therapists but also inherited his spiritual and intellectual legacy, his books and scientific works, which can be viewed at the MBL Museum.
 
When you choose to train at MBL you can be sure to get a high quality education based on the research of Professor Tomatis.

Who is this course for?

The APP training is aimed at physicians, psychologists, therapists  (occupational and speech/language therapists, physiotherapists, etc.), and practitioners of alternative medicine. The license acquired after the test is a prerequisite for the practice of the APP Method and the acquisition of the necessary technical equipment.

Multilingual classes
MBL offers courses in German, French and English. The APP training includes both theory and practice, and is organized differently according to the group's language. Since Dutch-speaking participants often speak several languages, they generally are able to enroll in one of the three courses.
 
Training in French and German is done over four weeks of theory and four weeks practice. Theory weeks are spread over one year. For practice sessions, participants organize their own schedule. Two of the four weeks of practice must be done at MBL, and the two remaining weeks may be carried out at a center with sufficient experience that is a Network member and has been approved by MBL.
 
The training in English consists of two blocks of three consecutive weeks each, during which theory and practice are combined. Theory sessions are taught during the day, while practical training, which entails learning how to use the equipment and perform listening tests, takes place in the evening.
