Policy Agreement

Participation and Attendance Guidelines

Participation Commitment: To thrive in our program, participants must fully commit to their engagement. Enrolling in any Imago Level One course for therapists or facilitators implies a commitment to complete dedication. This entails active participation, punctual attendance, adherence to the code of conduct, and enthusiastic involvement in all course activities.

Attendance Requirements: To ensure certification training meets the required hours, consistent attendance is essential. In the event of emergencies or illness preventing attendance, participants must promptly inform their instructor. Absences may necessitate completing session materials, reviewing recordings, and, depending on content missed, fulfilling a makeup assignment.

For absences exceeding (16) hours, arrangements can be made with Maureen Brine for personalized coverage at the participant's expense or consideration for registration in another course. Missing over (2) hours of supervision/feedback/mentoring requires scheduling and payment for individual sessions to fulfill the necessary mentoring hours.

Petitions for policy exceptions are handled individually and must be submitted in writing to Maureen Brine.

Course Engagement Expectations: Our courses emphasize interaction and engagement. Participants are expected to actively participate in course activities, engage in dialogue with instructor Maureen Brine and peers, partake in small group activities to practice Imago facilitation skills, and complete experiential learning exercises. If unable to participate, participants should promptly inform Maureen.

Refer to the code of conduct for additional details.

Code of Conduct: Participants are required to maintain a professional demeanor during all sessions. This includes:

Punctual attendance

Full participation in all sessions, training days, and facilitation mentoring or therapy supervision

Camera engagement during online sessions

Preparedness, involvement in discussions and activities, responsibility for learning, and contribution to the learning of others

Honest and integral engagement in discussions

Respect for diversity, embracing inclusivity, and upholding the dignity and humanity of others

Partial Completion Policy: Maureen Brine may offer credit for partial completion of Level One hours based on curriculum hours and participation levels. For inquiries about receiving partial credit, contact Maureen within (30) days after the course, providing course details, credit hours sought, and any relevant information.

Payment/Fees Policy: Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Course registration is contingent on full payment or an approved payment plan with Maureen Brine.

Refund Policy: Course cancellations require a minimum of (10) business days' notice for a full refund minus any non-refundable deposit fees. Cancellations made less than (10) days before the course are not eligible for refunds. Written notices of cancellation are effective on the withdrawal date received by Maureen Brine. Refunds will be processed within (30) days following the receipt of cancellation or withdrawal requests.
