Certified SOT® Pediatric Practitioner (CSPP)

Important Info

Our commitment to the ART of chiropractic started in 1979 when we taught our first SOT® category seminar while still students. In 1998, Dr. Rosen was asked to take the work of Major DeJarnette and organized a Pediatric Seminar based on his teachings. He taught the first comprehensive SOT® based Pediatric Seminar for the first time in 1999.

It has been our intention to offer a SOT® Pediatric Certificate Program for years. The time has finally arrived. We have created a three (16-hour per seminar) series that will bring the art of Sacro Occipital Technique® into the MOST comprehensive pediatric programs available.

Dr. Ken Cooper

I can't begin to speak highly enough about the Certification Series! I had originally taken Dr. Rosen's class through the ICPA courses and that class is just a drop in the bucket in comparison to what is taught in the Certification series. The ICPA class was an introduction to Dr. Rosen's work, but even his stand alone 16-hour Pediatrics class is at least twice as much information as the ICPA class was.

The Certification Series blows both out of the water. It is where you truly begin to work in the world that Dr. Rosen has created in the evaluation and care of Pediatric Patients!

I have been out to Boston to attend Dr. Rosen's seminars multiple times, repeating classes and each time I learned something new, understood a bit better, and reviewed a portion that I had missed the previous times. I intend to continue to repeat courses over and over again to strengthen my understanding of the material even more! They are that good!

Having Dr. Nancy Watson and Dr. Erin Rosen assisting in the teaching is a God-send as well! This ensures that you are getting tons of hands-on guided closely by Master Doctors that live these techniques every day! Not one of my questions has ever went unanswered!

I promise you, taking the Certification course is worth every penny and more. But I do caution you: hold onto your hats and come ready to dive deep! Dr. Rosen never leaves you hoping for more information! You will tap out before he does!

Fantastic series of seminars! Drs. Martin Rosen, Erin Rosen and Nancy Watson are a wealth of knowledge, bringing years of experience to these classes. They teach you practical applications of pediatric adjusting techniques that you can go back to the office and use that week. The structure of these classes is taught in a way that you learn everything hands on and you can feel that they really care if you are "getting it". If you are looking to expand your knowledge of pediatrics/pediatric adjusting, I would definitely recommend taking this whole series.

Lisa Geiger, D.C.

The SOT Pediatric Certificate Series by the Drs. Rosen was amazing. I find myself using the information and techniques I learned every day at my clinic, to the benefit of my patients, their families, and my reputation.

I found the information accessible, well laid-out and really fascinating. The passion these doctors have for this topic blends well with their depth of knowledge. I appreciated having the notes in advance and how they put the information together in different ways for review at the end.

I would recommend this class to anyone who works with children. If you were lucky enough to take Dr. Martin Rosen's class through the ICPA over the last fifteen years, this builds on that foundation and takes it to the next level. Taking the series over three weekends really allowed the information to simmer and take root before we built on the next layer each time. I am grateful to Dr. Martin and Dr. Erin for this series and for their professional expertise.

Laurie Mullen, D.C.

Dr. Martin Rosen delivered the pediatric certification series in a clear, organized, and masterful presentation which raised my practice to a new level, giving me more ways to help my pediatric patients. Dr. Erin Rosen clarified, answered questions, and demonstrated with her own impressive expertise. Additionally, I even took home gems that I can apply to my adult patients.

Lilian Aliberti, D.C.

I met Dr. Martin Rosen in 2017 in a seminar in Wisconsin. I learned a lot and it made me want to learn a lot more. In 2018, I took another seminar in London and my willingness to learn increased even more. When I saw the first certification started, I was sure that I'd do it completely, and, no doubts, it was the best decision I have ever made. The series is terrific. Dr. Martin Rosen is a great teacher and the Rosen family makes the practice extremely pleasant and easy to understand. I'm already using all I've learned in my training. I look forward to taking more and more seminars of this amazing family. Dr. Rosen's books and DVDs help me a lot and I'm confident to say that the learning with him changed my life.

Lee Rumley, D.C.

Having taken the introductory course to Cranial Sacral work with Drs. Marty Rosen, Erin Rosen & Nancy Watson I was inspired to take the full certification series. Each weekend I was able to delve deeper into my understanding of Cranial palpation and adjusting, honing the skills necessary to bring back to my patients. In the introductory course I was overwhelmed with the vast amount of content while at the same time inspired with a new sense of purpose. Each seminar, I would get a little more comfortable with my ability to feel the slight movements available in the cranial sutures all while getting a better understanding of the vital role it all plays in our patients overall health and well being. I would highly recommend this course to anyone that is thinking about adding this work to their practice. I love the family dynamic the three of these amazing practitioners brings to the seminar and I am honored to have learned from their experience. They are my people.

Amazing series of seminars! As a new graduate Drs. Martin Rosen, Erin Rosen and Nancy Watson are a wealth of knowledge and an incredible resource! This series builds on what I had learned in Dr Rosen’s ICPA class but compared to this series that is a drop in the bucket. This series brought a new level of confidence and competence to how I approach pediatric patients. I use the skills and knowledge from this series on a daily basis! Considering the years of experience behind these classes the information is accessible and integrated wonderfully with hands on learning. It is fanatic to leave a seminar where you can implement what you learned on Monday and the instructors truly cared if you understood the material. I can’t recommend this series highly enough!

Zach Kern, D.C.

This is an excellent seminar series. The pediatric evaluation and the cranial work that is laid out in this certification series should be considered the gold standard. Each seminar in the series builds off what was learned in the previous one. Having now completed the series, I am confident in my skills and proficiency in pediatric care and pediatric cranial work. Drs. Marty, Nancy, and Erin are great teachers and truly just want the material covered in the certification series to be carried on to the population through all of the doctors who have gone through the courses.
