XY Training

Our XY Training Program focuses on the science behind relationships in both the professional and personal arena. XY Theory's "Needs-Based" model (understanding high and low personality types) and core dimensions (communication, intimacy, adaptability, interactivity, and social activity), provides graduates with the tools to help their clients at the deepest level. Using XY Theory's Scientific Methodology, we train students in the areas of personality differential, neuroscience, genetics, epigenetics, hormones, and behavior. Because our training is so unigue, XY Theory offers an alternative approach to traditional counseling and therapy and complements any vocation. Whether you're a life coach, educator, clinician, therapist, clergy or someone interested in helping others, XY Theory can be used to enhance and enrich any profession.

XY Theory has changed my life. It really clarifies the compatibility factor and interaction levels. It also clarifies if the partners are committed to relationship growth or not."

What is the XY Training Program?

The XY Training Program was created by Personality Research Psychologist, Dr. John Jacob. It is a "new" science-based certified neuro-behavioral coaching program incorporating neuroscience, hormones, genetics, and XY Theory's "Needs-Based" model. Dr. Jacob takes students through different stages of coaching, listening, and goal setting skills. Based on XY Theory's Scientific Methodology, students will use these tools to determine personality differentials along with using their listening and goal setting skills to productively coach their clients to success. It is critical that students master these skills for effective coaching.

Who should participate in the XY Training Program?

Life coaches, LMFTs, MFTs, LCSWs, social workers, psychologists, counselors, physicians, nurses, clergies, tutors, educators or simply someone interested in the helping profession.

What makes the XY Training Program unique?

Our "Needs-Based" model provides coaches with a relationship niche that allows them to assist clients in all personal growth areas. These include romantic relationships, business and work relationships, education, as well as parent-child relationships.

What Happens after Graduation?

After graduation, coaches continue to be mentored by Dr. Jacob and his team, so that they feel a sense of confidence when coaching their first clients.
