This 17-day seminar is for Feldenkrais and Anat Baniel practitioners who are WORKING WITH CHILDREN. Our focus is on how young children with movement or neurological disorders can benefit from our work and improve how they co-ordinate their movement. Humans have a long apprenticeship from lying, to standing and walking. Regardless of where a child is in this process, we can give lessons that get that child’s brain to do its job better. Such learning can change the lives of children and their families.
The specific curriculum of each segment will be determined by the needs of the children and families who join us. If possible, the same children will come for all 3 segments and we will be able to follow the children's development during one entire year. These babies and children have neurological difficulties, including Cerebral Palsy, Genetic Syndromes and Brain Injury. In this master class, it is essential to learn much more that improving hands-on techniques.
During the practicum, practitioners will give lessons to the children with supervision of Nancy Aberle and Lynn Bullock. Nancy and Lynn are determined to bring this work to as many children as possible, and to support practitioners to learn to do so. They understand from their years of daily practice, how important it is to create effective lessons for children and to be able to "partner with the parents". They are very skilled at giving support and immediate feedback to practitioners to deal with the challenges that come up during the practicum. Some understanding of family systems theory can help to partner with the parents, so the parents can feel empowered and can move beyond their own trauma or anxieties. Developing more skill to deal with our own emotions as practitioners who are work with children, can improve the learning conditions for each child.
This practice-oriented seminar will include theory and techniques from “Anat Baniel Method(sm) for Children, based on the work of Dr. Feldenkrais”.
