What does it mean to be an Advanced Sensitive Sleep Consultant?
Becoming an Advanced Sensitive Sleep Consultant (ASSC) shows your clients and peers that you acknowledge learning is an ongoing process. ASSC's are able to demonstrate a more advanced level of understanding client needs and the complexities around sleep and working with families and self awareness as a professional. To maintain status as an ASSC, consultants engage in peer supervision (eg. regular participation in the peer support group online), explore resources (eg. wider reading) and attend other professional development (eg. free online seminars in the health, allied health, education, child and family related sectors), and/or mentoring with an approved consultant. There is no annual fee to maintain your status.
* Only students who enrolled in the new stream of the Advanced program from 26th July 2020 are eligible for the ten intensive one-on-one sessions. Students who enrolled in the Advanced program prior to this date are not included in the new stream, however, they are able to upgrade to the new stream by contacting us and paying the upgrade fee.
