Copyright Agreement: The content of BOHI courses and classes are copyrighted. We fully understand our student's feelings of wanting to share with relatives, friends and even strangers what has been helpful for them. However, to protect BOI's mission we ask you to limit your sharing to your own words, your own writings and to referring your friends to BOHI.
By signing this enrollment form, you promise that you will never violate BOHI copyrights by sharing digital recordings, videos or copyrighted material, and most especially the links conducive to the classes, with anyone. Lack of integrity at keeping this promise can create serious damage to BOHI and I do understand that I'm fully responsible for the consequences of my actions.
Please write here your full name accepting this commitment:
Employment placement or client referrals are not promised or implied. After completion -- or even earlier -- of any of the certifications, you are advised here to start seeing clients and to do a practicum, by setting up special appointments for supervision with your BOHI instructor. ______ (Initials)
Supervision: It is advised that you continue this supervised counseling practice until you feel completely confident in your counseling profession. Private supervised sessions are not mandated for your Certification, or included in the cost of the courses. However, they can definitely enhance your skills.
Accreditations: BOHI is a completely independent school. We do not participate in accreditation systems of any kind, state licensing systems or state boards. We do not believe in any form of government control of the millenarian profession of education. Our school stands on its own integrity, the quality of its programs and the skill of its teachers. If you are looking for a degree to get a government job, or to bill insurance companies for your services, or get a job in an agency financed through medical, medicare or other government programs, we strongly recommend that you do not sign this enrollment form, and look for a school aligned with the mainstream. BOHI is appropriate for individuals that want to create their own business and or private practice, and/or value the unique information presented in our courses for personal growth or professional reasons.
Transferring to Another University: If you are planning to continue your studies in another University, and you expect they will validate what you studied with us, we want to caution you: it is likely that due to the nature of our school and programs, other universities, especially mainstream universities, will not validate your studies at BOHI. You may want to check with them first.
Copyrights of the dissertations are shared by both, the student and the Brain Optimization™ Holistic Institute. Special research projects performed at the Brain Optimization™ Holistic Institute may be an exception to the above sharing policy. In those cases a special contract will be signed by both parties.
By signing this document, I agree to honor its provisions and adhere to the highest integrity as a student and later in my work as a counselor, healer and teacher, writer and entrepreneur in the helping professions.
