Much of the training, offered by Applied Metapsychology International, in TIR and related Applied Metapsychology techniques is considered appropriate for all levels of practicing social workers, psychologists, therapists, counselors, clergy, and critical incident stress debriefers (see below).
While appropriate for use in a therapeutic setting, and while its results may be viewed as therapeutic in nature, Applied Metapsychology, its method and techniques, are a form of highly disciplined and structured integrative education, which results in personal improvement. The structure and safety built into the subject make it well suited for community mental health and peer co-counseling.
