Havening Techniques® is a psychotherapy method developed by Dr. Ronald Ruden and Dr. Steven Ruden. It is based on the idea that specific touch techniques, or havening, can help to reduce the emotional intensity of traumatic memories and other negative experiences. The method can help to reduce anxiety, phobias, and other negative emotional states by deactivating the “amygdala,” a region of the brain involved in emotional processing and memory.

The Havening Techniques Certification Training Program is a program that provides training in the use of Havening Techniques for individuals interested in becoming certified practitioners of this method. Havening Techniques are helpful when used as adjunctive therapy in combination with many other approaches.

The program consists of four half-day training sessions, during which students will learn about the theory and practice of havening techniques and have the opportunity to practice the techniques with other students under the guidance of a Certified Trainer. After completing the training, students who wish to become certified practitioners can complete additional assignments through an online certification portal and submit a final practitioner application to Havening.

The steps to completing certification are as follows:

  • Complete Science Review
  • Submit 30 written case studies
  • Submit 2 video case studies
  • Submit an application fee of $99

Havening Practitioner membership dues are $99 per year. For those practicing in the United States, please note you must also complete the Ethics Course independently administered by Midge Murphy JD ($149).

Please schedule a session through the Online Booking Calendar if you would like to experience Havening firsthand before registering for the Training Program.
