The general objective of the Certified Forest Bathing Guide Training is to train professionals specialized in understanding the multiple interrelationships between people, the natural and social environment. Likewise, they must exhibit skills, abilities and competence applying the FTH Method to design and conduct wellbeing and therapeutic experiences for health prevention in different settings, different personal and social contexts, throughout the life cycle, knowing and respecting the Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of FTH.

Know why, how to be and how to do

A pedagogical model in which the students conduct preparatory work to integrate, understand and apply the knowledge. Then, together with the trainers, they analyse, evaluate, create, and adapt methods according to each student's soft skills.

The goal is that the student, based on knowledge, adapts the methods to their unique skills, integrating them as competencies.

With this goal various methodologies are applied:
