I am a student, can I attend?
Yes, students can attend under the following circumstances: 1). the student is ideally in their last year of graduate work in their program; 2). the student is under the supervision of a professor from their program who is aware that the student is attending the training; 3). that professor gives that student written permission from the Graduate program to attend our training – especially if the student is only in their 2nd or 3rd year of the program – and that permission is submitted with their registration form; 4). the professor ensures that the student is not practicing the SOS Approach to Feeding program independently (I.E. the professor accepts responsibility for the student engaging in any treatment using the SOS program). Note: As is an ethical requirement for all graduate programs, students are not allowed to practice clinical therapy without direct/live professor/clinician supervision. Supervision is required until the student attains their degree and/or licensure.
