Crossfields Institute Level 7 Diploma in Integrative Healthcare

These qualifications are now open for registrations

The Level 7 Diploma/Extended Diploma in Osteopathy was developed in response to the changing market and emerging regulatory requirements for osteopaths. It will provide accreditation that meets internationally agreed best practice standards for trainee osteopaths from various countries, as developed and delivered by the European School of Osteopathy.

The Level 7 Diploma in Integrative Healthcare aims to develop the theoretical and practical knowledge, critical and analytic abilities and the professional and reflective practice of health care professionals to help them transform health care into a more effective and compassionate practice that respects the individual as a whole person

The Level 4 Certificate in Family Work introduces learners to the key knowledge, understanding and skills involved in Family Work: what it looks like and why it is a vital part of caring for children, young people and adults with life histories of loss or separation from family members, attachment disruption or other relational ruptures, and/or developmental trauma.

Crossfields Institute is a Gloucestershire based education charity, approved by Ofqual (the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulations in England) as an awarding organisation. The Institute specialises in the development of specialist qualifications for providers with a particular vision or ethos.

Trauma theory is a fast developing area, and is emerging as a fundamental influence on best practice in the care of individuals within the care system. Despite increased research in this area, there is little in the way of regulated qualifications across the world and none in the UK.

This qualification is an integral part of the effort to expand understanding of the impact of trauma, and structure and deliver services in a way that are Trauma Responsive.

It is designed to equip learners with the theoretical and practical understanding of Trauma Informed Care. The qualification also supports organisations in ensuring their staff are offering the most appropriate, effective care to the individuals under their responsibility.
