SI Discourse, Online Forum for Practitioners

Announcement of SI Discourse, an Online Forum for Practitioners
Join us at https://forum.si-discourse.org

Mission
The mission of SI Discourse is to foster deeper connection and collaboration amongst certified Structural Integration practitioners globally. With inclusivity and mutual respect as guiding principles, we aim for this community-moderated space to be one that inspires and grows the practice and teaching of SI through shared knowledge and experience.

Overview
This is a place to connect and share with people who are passionate about Structural Integration, and all the ways it interconnects with our experiences. We want people to have a good online experience; the administrators and moderators take the health of the community seriously, and we will adapt as challenges arise.
Discourse is a community-moderated platform designed to encourage civilized conversation and connection without ads or other distractions. Here, you have the option to seamlessly engage both with your immediate colleagues (e.g. other Rolfers or Guilders), other practitioners with a specialty (e.g. perinatal care), and with the community as a whole. No separate pages.

Key Features
As a diverse and international group of colleagues, we have an enormous wealth of experiences, perspectives, questions, and more to offer and share with each other. We all know that online dialog inevitably has problems, and this platform won’t be immune to them, but here are a few of the advantages that SI Discourse offers our discussions:

  • Built-in translation for our international community.
  • Conversations become a permanent knowledge base for the community.
  • Conversations are supported with categories, topics, and tags.
  • A powerful search engine helps you find topics and keywords.
  • Private messaging and private group messages are built-in.
  • Data-harvesting and privacy-intrusive companies are not involved.

Here are some of the key attributes of our community:

IASI Recognition of Basic Training Programs

IASI Recognition of Basic Training Programs

Introduction

IASI Recognition is a process by which a Structural Integration basic training is evaluated, based on an accepted set of standards, to ensure a minimum level of basic Structural Integration education. The basic training's curriculum includes the following: at least 730 class
hours of instruction, adequate in-class supervision of Structural Integration work, demonstration of professional competencies, and inclusion of core curriculum elements. The structure and content of the core curriculum elements must lead students to achieve or exceed the professional competencies of an entry-level, independent Structural Integrator who can legally practice SI. The basic training must ensure that the sequencing, duration, nature, and content of all didactic, practical, and manual application courses are appropriately integrated and consistent with the program's purposes and educational objectives. The IASI Recognition process enhances the profession of Structural Integration and assures the public a standard of quality from graduates. These benefits elevate the Structural Integration profession in the eyes of the public, raise the profession above sub-par bodywork education, and increase the public's confidence in practitioners of Structural Integration.

IASI aspires to the highest level of integrity in the process of recognition. Basic training programs seeking IASI Recognition will demonstrate honesty and integrity and will agree to comply with all IASI educational standards, decisions, policies, and procedures both during the recognition process and throughout the term of recognition. Basic training programs must be clear with potential students, and the public, about how instructional hours are classified, and how they can be applied towards government licensing requirements. IASI acknowledges and highlights basic training programs that are licensed as schools by state or national governments; this information will be communicated on the IASI website. Basic training programs will renew their recognition status in January of each year. IASI acknowledges that there are elements of contextual and cultural sensitivity involved with educational standards; if a program needs a specific accommodation, it may submit a written application to the IASI Board.
