Yudit Maros, LMFT, C.Ht trained under Robert Schwarz and, with his permission, has been bringing the training to other mental health professionals in person for the past

twenty-five  years.

In 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic, BSOTR training first moved to being taught by webinar.  At that same time, clinicians around the country also moved to teletherapy, and found that using BSOTR with clients via telehealth is just as powerful as in-person sessions.
