The Justisse Method of fertility awareness and the Justisse Fertility Management Practitioner training were developed in 1987 by Geraldine Matus. The intention was to provide information and guidance for sexual and reproductive health management with respect to individual rights and decisions. Over the years Justisse evolved into Justisse College International, a non-profit corporation dedicated to training Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioners (HRHPs). Starting in 2011, a group of HRHP graduates began training to become Justisse College faculty members and collaborators in managing the college in a non-hierarchical manner. See our current faculty and staff below.
At Justisse we provide comprehensive, purposeful and meaningful training for fertility awareness educators, aiming to have our graduates exemplify ethical standards of clinical and educational practice. Our courseware is an ever developing, multidisciplinary journey through the endocrinology, anatomy, physiology, history and life stages of the female body, reflecting the most scientifically accurate knowledge currently available, while also encouraging a functional medicine approach, scientific literacy and self-reflection. A Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner understands the connection between menstrual cycle and general health, the deep significance that fertility awareness has in women’s lives, as well as issues of reproductive justice.
