Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Is The Sophia Framework right for me?
A: Yes, if you can read and write, The Sophia Framework can definitely improve your cognitive abilities and learning.

Q: How long is the training?
A: The basic training is one day and is offered for both companies and individuals. Individuals wishing to take the training should contact us for availability and dates. We also offer more advanced programs and tailored solutions for companies.

Q: What do I get from the training?
A: You will get specific skills that will help you RISE. The psychotechnology of RISE consists of skills that improve Rationality, Insight, Self-Regulation, and Empathy. You will also receive a certificate after the completion of training.

Q: Why do I get a certificate?
A: The certificate is proof that you have attended our basic training and any advanced courses that you may have taken. More and more HR professionals are asking candidates if they attended the Sophia Framework training.

Q: Do I need to practice the skills from the training?
A: Yes – your brain is similar to the muscles in your body. The more you exercise the muscles, the stronger they get. The more you practice the skills that we teach you, the better you will be.

Q: How long do I need to practice these skills?
A: Research shows that it takes about five weeks to change simple habits. We recommend that you practice the skills daily until they become automatic. Unlike meditation, it is a matter of weeks, not years.

Q: I liked the training so much, what can I do next?
A: Speak to us about more advanced training so that we can accommodate your desire to learn more. If you feel like reading, we can give you a list of the scientific material behind our work or Dr. Vervaeke’s book on Mindfulness Meditation. Maybe you can become our ambassador at your company.

Q: I know a bunch of people that need this, what should I do?
A: If you have taken the basic training already, please use our referral app. You cannot refer someone until you have gone through the training yourself. As long as there is no conflict of interest (such as the people you refer working at the same company as you, etc.), if you like, you will receive a referral reward. Some people want referral rewards and some don’t. We leave the choice up to you (and you can always change your mind).
